On April 18, 1955 — 59 years ago today — the pioneering physicist Albert Einstein died. Einstein developed the general theory of relativity, a pillar of modern physics; published more than 300 scientific papers; and he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics “for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect” — a pivotal development in establishing quantum theory.
Interestingly, Einstein’s mathematical abilities and his creative way of thinking were so revered even while he was alive that, almost immediately upon his death, pathologist Thomas Stoltz Harvey removed Einstein’s brain, weighed it, then dissected it into several pieces. In 2010, Dr. Harvey’s heirs transferred all the Einstein brain holdings to the National Museum of Health and Medicine. In addition, 46 small portions of Einstein’s brain were acquired and are on exhibit at Philadelphia’s Mutter Museum.
The cheetah is a large feline inhabiting most of Africa and parts of the Middle East.
The cheetah can run faster than any other land animal, as fast as 112 to 120 km/h in short bursts covering distances up to 500 m, and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in three seconds.
Jacob O'Neal created a nice animated infographic into which you can find many information about this splendid feline.
