Einstein & Light

Everything astronomers know about stars, galaxies, and the universe comes from observing light. Light is a unique phenomenon --nothing else in nature is quite like light. We explore how Einstein discovered the true nature of light, and what astronomers learn from the gravitational lensing, redshifts, and atomic fingerprints of light.

Dr. Robert Piccioni

Robert graduated from Caltech, has a Ph.D. in high-energy physics from Stanford University, and was on the faculty of Harvard. Robert ran eight high-tech companies and holds patents in medical equipment, microelectronics, and smart energy. Since "retiring", his mission is making science accessible. Robert teaches at the Osher Institute at UCLA and Cal. State Channel Islands, where he was voted "Teacher of the Year". He is the author of three books that won national and international competitions and have the highest ratings in their categories on Amazon.com.

"What's Up?" in this month will be presented by Steve Condrey
