Einsteins work put online for all to seeIf you’ve ever wondered what went through the mind of one of the world’s most renowned scientists, Einstein, you’re in luck. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem has announced that it will be scanning and posting over 80,000 documents from the University’s Einstein Archives and the Einstein Papers Project at Caltech online. The documents will be available online at the Einstein Archives Online website via a user-friendly interface. Documents and be searched for, filtered, and sorted by topics and similarity.

In addition to his scientific writings and correspondence, his non-scientific writings and correspondence, family letter and travel diaries will also be put up for all to see. Just when you thought you couldn’t find out more about the genius and his work. There isn’t a lot to see on the website at the moment (the project will continue all the way throughout 2012) but you can check out some of the samples available.
