“If you can’t explain it to a 6-year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” – Albert Einstein

Just one of the many quotes I love, attributed to Mr. Albert Einstein.

I can’t let today go by without taking note of its significance. Not only is it the month/day dedicated to the irrational number pi, but it is also the birthday of one of the most significant scientists of the modern world – Albert Einstein.

Check out this cool video about the number Pi. (Beware, the tune is a familiar one; I have had the song stuck in my head since this morning!)

Hope you have a happy pi day and happy birthday, Albert!

Thanks for all the insights and discoveries! Science, as we know it, would not exist without your brilliance…

Below are some great resources to learn more about the man and his most significant discoveries:
