Who best to explain theory of relativity? Now that we can measure gravitational waves, it looks like this theory has a look in?
Any how, I stumbled on this book by Albert Einstein which is in public domain, last time I checked it was available as html, text and something called “MS Word Document” — whatever that means. The book “Relativity : the Special and General Theory by Albert Einstein” is the famous paper which explained all this clever stuff.
Just checked back there and now you can download a TeX file from project Gutenberg. This is revolutionary, now you can produce a beautifully typeset document to peruse.
The TeX file seems to compile fine, I used pdflatex and got a few warnings, there where warnings about illegal character on saving the file, hope you can avoid these problems.
Anyway great news for Einstein fans, read his theory explained in his own words, or words he endorsed.
Download TeX here:
Or you can probably find pdf for free, or pay 90p for kindle version. 🙂

This phase diagram is making me hungry for some reason… Fer Fondu sounds yummy.
Taken from International Association for Testing Materials, VIth Congress, New York, 1912, “The Nomenclature of the microstructure substances and structures of steel and cast iron”.

I saw on phys.org website new that Monckton et al have published a paper “Why models run hot: results from an irreducibly simple climate model” about climate modelling, and why previous models ‘run hot’.
Monckton et al Climate Model
As seen in their figure 6, their model matches very well with the observations. One strange thing to me, is that they have observations of the temperature change until the year 2050, although currently the start of 2015. Does this mean that Monckton et al are able to get information from the future, maybe they have a time machine? It seems more likely that they made a serious mistake in the presentation of their results. Since this paper should have been subject to much scrutiny before publishing (given the controversy of the subject) it seems probable to me that the figure purposefully misleads the reader.
As can reported at skeptical science, in 2012, Christopher Monckton has been using this graph for some time. It seems that the error is to compare data from two different periods of time. The graph presented in the recent paper is less carefully presented than the version used in a 2012 presentation. If we look at the old graph we can understand that the data is not from the future, it’s actually the previous trend.
Monckton’s credibility gap
They also suggest a parallel with another UK time travelling Lord, could it be that Christopher Monckton is a Time Lord?
