Einstein's papers now available online

Thousands of Albert Einstein's original documents have been uploaded by the Princeton University Press.
The German-born physicist, one of the best known scientists in history, left more than 80,000 documents when he died in 1955.

Since then researchers have been attempting to sift through all of his diaries, notes, letters and papers in an effort to study his writings and, more recently, to compile them for publishing online.
The result is the Digital Einstein project - a website on which it is now possible to browse over 1,000 of his documents.

The archive includes science papers, diary entries, personal love letters, divorce files, high school transcripts and even the notebook in which he first worked out his general theory of relativity.

The online archive can be accessed at - http://einsteinpapers.press.princeton.edu/

I wouldn't mind getting my hands on all scientific papers. Immerse myself in them and understand them, then work on building upon them so they would shine. I always wanted to continue Einsteins or Tesla's work.

Thousands of Einstein Documents Are Now a Click Away They have been called the Dead Sea Scrolls of physics. Since 1986, the Princeton University Press and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, to whom Albert Einstein bequeathed his copyright, have been engaged in a mammoth effort to study some 80,000 documents he left behind. Starting on Friday, when Digital Einstein is introduced, anyone with an Internet connection will be able to share in the letters, papers, postcards, notebooks and diaries that Einstein left scattered in Princeton and in other archives, attics and shoeboxes around the world ...
