Lights around the world relay Einstein's genius
Friday, April 22, 2005

Organizers at Princeton University flipped the first light switch to kick off a worldwide relay of lights on Monday, the 50th anniversary of Albert Einstein's death.

The relay got under way at 8:45 p.m., when the nighttime sky was illuminated by the lights of the Princeton University Stadium as well as Fine Tower and the Graduate College's Cleveland Tower.

Then, an estimated 120,000 participants flipped light switches, dialed cellular phones and sent e-mails one right after another in a relay around the globe. The light traveled west with the night Monday and came full circle Tuesday evening when an e-mail arrived at 8:57 p.m. on the computer of Claire F. Gmachl, associate professor of electrical engineering at Princeton and one of the local organizers of the relay.
Full story from The Princeton Packet.
