Old Earth late Industrial Age German/American physicist, 90-14 BT (1879-1955 c.e.) and popular su genome template. Formulated the Theories of Special and GeneralRelativity. Einstein won the Nobel Prize in 48 BT (1921 c.e.) for explaining the photoelectric effect.
Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) - Text by M. Alan Kazlev State of matter in which a large number of bosons occupy the same quantum state. All are defined by a single quantum wave function. Has many useful properties and functions including bosers, superconductivity, micro blackholes, and exotic fluid dynamics.
Church of St. Einstein, The - Text by Todd Drashner Guild-like organization supported by the relativists. Despite its name, the Church is not a religious organization, but rather a guild devoted to helping relativist crews arriving in a new system to re-acclimate and adapt to the rest of civilization. The Church maintains hostels and reeducation centers on most civilized worlds served or visited by relativistic vessels. The centers work to update starship crews on history and current events, social mores, and the locations and status of any friends or family members living in 'quick-time' (the relativist term for the 'stationary', non-relativistic reference frame).
Einstein Bridge - Text by M. Alan Kazlev Wormhole linking Sol System and Tau Ceti. It is the oldest macroscopic wormhole still in operation and, apart from a period during the Version War when it was shut down, it has been in continuous operation since the middle Expansion Age.
General Relativity - Text by M. Alan Kazlev A development by Einstein of his Special Relativity that includes acceleration and gravity, both of which are explained via the curvature of space-time.
