Einstein’s Universe brings to life this pop-star scientist's thoughts — not only on science and his times, but also on creativity, children, religion and music. Dozens of quotes from his writings and speeches are paired with images of his early life in Germany and his final years at Princeton. 

Today, Einstein's legacy is everywhere, from cell phones to nuclear power plants. More than 50 years after his death, who better to make sense of it all than the man himself?
