Program Description

Einstein had more on his mind than space and time, NOVA discloses in this two-hour special that premieres the series' fall season. The greatest thinker of his age was also something of a stinker, who was false to his wife even as he was discovering new truths about the universe. Oddly enough, his messy personal life helps explain his extraordinary creativity.
