The Birds and the Bees and Einstein

Last week, a recently discovered letter written by Albert Einstein was presented for the first time by Australian Academics in the Journal of Comparative Physiology A. The letter documents Einstein’s thoughts on a possible link between biology and physics, and the potential lessons physicists could learn from animals’ senses.

And so, keeping with the theme of World Bee Day; we were joined by the lead author of the article, Associate Professor Adrian Dyer of RMIT University to tell us about this letter and what it means for the scientific community.

To read more about this discovery check out their article in The Conversation here. You can also read the publication in which they presented this letter here.
