Happy 10th Birthday FQXi! & News Round-Up

FQXi's director Anthony Aguirre joins us to celebrate a decade of the Foundational Questions Institute. In the news round-up, Zeeya, Brendan and Anthony talk about quantum satellites, exoplanets and sending nanoships to Alpha Centauri -- and discuss whether governments, charitable foundations like FQXi or individuals should be responsible for funding physics research.

Einstein's Plagiarism (Reverse Engineering)

Einstein derived the constancy of the speed of light from the Lorentz equations, called it "postulate", and finally derived the Lorentz equations from the "postulate":

John Norton: " The mathematical apparatus needed to complete this approach had already been developed by H. A. Lorentz in his theorem of corresponding states. Einstein knew well an earlier version of the theorem from Lorentz’s work of 1895. The difficulty of pursuing the...
