Einstein’s Big Idea This is a movie that tells the story about the famous equation E=mc 2 Many scientist, who have also influenced the science community are introduced throughout the movie Scientist often influenced each other in their discoveries This is a movie that tells the story about the famous equation E=mc 2 Many scientist, who have also influenced the science community are introduced throughout the movie Scientist often influenced each other in their discoveries

5
Early Life FBorn: 13 June 1831 in Edinburgh, Scotland F He was very curious and smart FAt the age of 14, Maxwell wrote a paper on ovals, and while doing so generalized the definition of an ellipse FBorn: 13 June 1831 in Edinburgh, Scotland F He was very curious and smart FAt the age of 14, Maxwell wrote a paper on ovals, and while doing so generalized the definition of an ellipse

Legacy FKnown as the father of modern physics FJames Clerk Maxwell Foundation: promotes, encourages, advances, and commemorates work in the science FKnown as the father of modern physics FJames Clerk Maxwell Foundation: promotes, encourages, advances, and commemorates work in the science

10
Maxwell’s Impacts FPhotography: analyzed the phenomenon of color perception, which led him to invent the trichromatic process FEngineering: the first to show how to calculate stresses in framed arch and suspension bridges FSpacer Exploration: discovery of electromagnetic radiation led to the development of radio and infra-red telescopes FAnd much more FPhotography: analyzed the phenomenon of color perception, which led him to invent the trichromatic process FEngineering: the first to show how to calculate stresses in framed arch and suspension bridges FSpacer Exploration: discovery of electromagnetic radiation led to the development of radio and infra-red telescopes FAnd much more

11
What Others Thought About Him FIvan Tolstoy “Maxwell's importance in the history of scientific thought is comparable to Einstein’s (whom he inspired) and to Newton’s (whose influence he curtailed)” FMax Planck "He achieved greatness unequalled” FEinstein “The special theory of relativity owes its origins to Maxwell's equations of the electromagnetic field."
