Recently, I attended Dr. Wayne’s presentation on Einstein within the Hesburgh Lecture Series. The topics spanned various disciplines that Einstein helped to progress, prominently the theories of relativity and the photoelectric effect. Before the lecture, I had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Dr. Wayne through a meal. At the meal, we discussed discoveries in astrophysics (e.g. the Big Bang) and some of his research in particle physics. He has utilized data from particle accelerators to progress in his field. We also talked about other, non-physics topics such as the media's role in politics.
