Albert Einstein and the State of Humanity

A look into Albert Einstein’s musings on the state of humanity, moral decay and the quest for objective truth.

This eerie photograph is a close-up of the inner parts of the Crab nebula. The Crab pulsar (seen here at the left of the pair of stars near the center of the frame) is the collapsed core of the exploded star. The pulsar itself is a rapidly rotating neutron star, an object only about 10 kilometers (6 miles) across, but containing more mass than our Sun.
