http://www.gustavus.edu/events/nobel/2005/ gdaigle, who recently joined PF, started this thread in Quantum Physics forum https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=90280 Every year there is a "Nobel Conference" at a college in Minnesota called Gustavus Adolfus college. they choose a theme and get half a dozen eminent and good speakers each of which talks about some aspect of the theme. this year the theme was Albert Einstein, life contribution to science, humanity---that sort of thing. gdaigle attended the conference, in October, and took notes and reported in that thread. for some reason I missed the thread until just now. those who did notice it, like ZapperZ, were pleased and appreciative. I'll add my thanks and put a link here in "QG" forum in case anyone else doesnt regularly visit the other one and missed it as I did.
