    I think you should go back and insist on clarification from her. I wasn't able to google up anything relevant.

    Is it completely taboo to even ask her what she meant by the "Albert Einstein Debate of 2004"?

    BTW, it is NOT nice to post your question to more than one part of PF. That's a no-no if you read PF rules.

    Well, I do hope someone can. I think I'm pretty up-to-date on the general going-ons in physics, and it would certainly be unusual if I missed something like this. However, I have never heard of this "Einstein Debate of 2004". Maybe it's something I missed and someone else here may have heard of it. In any case, I strongly suggest going to your teacher again and double-check if the topic is accurate, especially with the year.

    In one of the recent entries in my Journal on here, there is a link to the Albert Einstein Archive. You may want to look at that.

    I read a good book about him actually. Its called Einstiend and Newton by some canadian publishing company. It was an interesting story. How he convinced the president to do nuclear research, he had a daughter, but she was sent away. He divorced the fist time, but married one of his cousins, I think. Maybe a 2nd cousin.

    this is what my friend said it was most likely based on he is a physics major at u Of i urbana he said he thought he read ana rticle about it.
    "it was about how the spinning of the earth warps the gravitational field"
    in simplified terms i think that means
    I think it was whether gravitational effects were according to what einstien said or not. But im not sure can anyone verify and think thats maybe what my teacher is talking about?

    But you said "the Albert Einstein DEBATE of 2004". This is not a "debate", is it? A debate, at least to me, is a bunch of people arguing about issues. Didn't you watch any of the political debates from the last election?

    If this is REALLY what your teacher meant, then this is a very strange way of defining what a "debate" is. Besides, what makes you think that THIS is the only thing in 2004 that is connected to Einstein?

    i dont know i know what a debate is im a huge political science freak. but like, a debate in science could be testing if something worked this all i can think of at least i mean unless someone else has a better idea this is what i have to go with on my outline at least. I will turn my outline in to her and maybe she will yell at me for being completely wrong, or she wont. and like i said im not sure if this is the only thing that is connect with 04 and einstein im just gonna have to go with it. ive searched the internet up and down.

    Einstein GR maybe you are supose to talk about conflict between GR and QM or at least you could and draw it back to say string theory... filler is nice for 20 pages.
