Sure, it's easy to remember that he had a big brain and even bigger hair, but tough to recall the specifics about Albert Einstein's scientific theories - especially if you spent high school physics scribbling song lyrics instead of field equations. Fortunately, the Health Museum is offering up "Einstein," an expansive exhibition that explains all things Einstein in much clearer ways than your poor chalk-wielding teacher ever could. In addition to plenty of biographical information about the genius, who died in 1955, the exhibition has a set of digital clocks that illustrate the possibility of time travel, a kinetic sculpture that uses moving lights to visualize theories on the nature of light, and a video installation that distorts visitors' images with the imaginary gravity of a black hole. Oh - and be sure to save some brainpower for that whole "relativity" thing. 1515 Hermann Drive. For information, call 713-521-1515 or visit www.thehealthmuseum.org. $8.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 11. Continues through Jan. 4, 2008
