Initiativkreis Albert-Einstein-Haus Caputh
------------------------------------------

(Aus: "Mitteilungen zur Astronomiegeschichte" Nr. 17, Jan. 2000, S. 1;
mit einer Ergaenzung - siehe Schluss.)


Potsdam und seine Umgebung sind mit Albert Einstein, der fast 20 Jahre im
damaligen Zentrum der Physik Berlin wirkte, direkt und indirekt verbunden.
Erinnert sei an das Astrophysikalische Observatorium Potsdam, an dem
Albert Michelson sein Aether-Experiment durchfuehrte, und wo Karl
Schwarzschild wirkte, der sich mit den Konsequenzen der Einsteinschen
Relativitaetstheorie fuer die Astrophysik befasste.

Diese Verbindung hat uns auch zwei gegenstaendliche Zeugen hinterlassen:
den von Erich Mendelsohn geschaffenen Einsteinturm auf dem Potsdamer
Telegraphenberg und das von Konrad Wachsmann in Caputh gebaute Sommerhaus
Albert Einsteins. Hier, wenige Kilometer von Potsdam und Berlin entfernt,
verbrachte Einstein zwischen 1929 und 1932 einen Grossteil der
Sommermonate. Beide Baudenkmale sind wegen ihrer Geschichte und dem durch
sie dokumentierten Zusammentreffen von Naturwissenschaft und Architektur
auch fuer zukuenftige Generationen als Zeitzeugen zu erhalten.

Waehrend der Einsteinturm seine Sanierung hinter sich hat und nun in neuem
Glanz erstrahlt, ist die Situation bei Einsteins Sommerhaus weniger
zufriedenstellend. Um hier Abhilfe zu schaffen, haben interessierte und
engagierte Caputher Buerger einen Initiativkreis gebildet. Im Folgenden
werden die Zielstellungen des Initiativkreises geschildert. Der Kreis
freut sich ueber jede weitere auch ueber Caputh hinausgehende
Unterstuetzung. Interessenten koennen unter der am Textende genannten
Adresse Kontakt aufnehmen.


Die Zielsetzungen des Initiativkreises Albert-Einstein-Haus Caputh

Auch nach mehr als zehn Jahren deutscher Einheit ist die rechtliche
Situation um das Sommerhaus Albert Einsteins ungeklaert. Da das Haus
zunehmend verfaellt und sich inzwischen in einem erschreckenden Zustand
befindet, muessen alle Bemuehungen auf eine moeglichst baldige
Restaurierung gerichtet sein.

Der Initiativkreis Albert-Einstein-Haus Caputh hat sich zum Ziele gesetzt,
interessierte Personen und Institutionen zusammenzufuehren, die die
Lebendigkeit des geistigen Erbes Albert Einsteins sowie die Erhaltung des
Einstein-Hauses foerdern wollen. Er versteht sich als Katalysator und
Ansprechpartner fuer Gespraeche zu diesem Thema und setzt sich vor allem
ein fuer:

* eine Reduzierung der touristischen Nutzung des Sommerhauses und die
gleichzeitige Einrichtung eines Informationszentrums in Caputh, in dem
Dokumente und Informationen zur Geschichte des Sommerhauses sowie zu
seinem Besitzer und seinem Architekten praesentiert werden sollen;

* die Substanzerhaltung des Sommerhauses in Vorbereitung der dringend
notwendigen Restaurierung, die auch unabhaengig von der kuenftigen Nutzung
geboten ist;

* die Initiierung und Moderation einer Diskussion und Realisierung eines
Nutzungskonzeptes unter Mitwirkung aller daran Interessierter.

Das Interesse an dem Haus und insbesondere an Albert Einstein sowie dem
Architekten Konrad Wachsmann soll in der Oeffentlichkeit wach gehalten
werden. Der Initiativkreis thematisiert dazu wissenschaftliche,
architekturhistorische, lokale und zeitgeschichtliche Aspekte mit
Veranstaltungen, Vortraegen, Publikationen und Ausstellungen. So sind
verschiedene Vortragsveranstaltungen und eine Ausstellung zum 100.
Geburtstag Wachsmanns am 16. Mai 2001 in Vorbereitung.

Auch damit moechte der Initiativkreis ein breites Interesse fuer die
Unterstuetzung seiner Aktivitaeten wecken.

Exhibition on One Thousand Years of the Art and Science of Astronomy
--------------------------------------------------------------------

       Vintage telescopes, astronomy manuscripts dating back to the 13th
century, a Moon rock and NASA pictures of distant galaxies are displayed at
the Huntington Library, San Marino, Calif., in an exhibit exploring
humanity's quest to understand the cosmos.

       The exhibit, called "Star Struck: One Thousand Years of the Art and
Science of Astronomy," features images taken by NASA/JPL planetary missions
over the past four decades, along with historic astronomical instruments
and important works by Galileo, Cassini, Huygens and other early
astronomers.

       "NASA and JPL have been part of creating a new era of observing the
universe by sending probes to the planets in our solar system and putting
telescopes in space that can observe the universe in much greater detail,"
said Dr. Edward Stone, director of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in
Pasadena. Stone advised the Huntington Library in assembling the exhibit.

       The three astronomical themes included in the exhibit, Stone said,
are: What is our place in the universe? How do we observe the universe to
understand that? What have we seen that has allowed us to understand better
our place in the universe?

       Visitors to the exhibit, which runs until May 13, will also see the
first hand-drawn star map of the southern hemisphere and a 1913 letter from
Albert Einstein asking astronomer George Ellery Hale, founder of the Mount
Wilson and Palomar Mountain observatories, to review his new theory of
general relativity.

       This exhibit is the first in "The Universe" series of space-related
events in the Pasadena area in coming months. Other institutions and
organizations taking part are the California Institute of Technology,
Armory Center for the Arts, Art Center College of Design, Norton Simon
Museum, One Colorado, Pacific Asia Museum and Southwest Chamber Music.

       For hours, admission and more information on the Huntington Library,
see http://www.huntington.org . For information on space exploration and
astronomical objects, see JPL's website at http://www.jpl.nasa.gov . JPL, a
NASA center, is a division of Caltech.

The Raymond and Beverly Sackler Archive Resource
------------------------------------------------

By Gudrun Richardson, London, UK


The Sackler Archive Resource is developed by the Royal Society Library and
generously funded by the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Trust. The Resource
is a biographical database of Fellows of the Royal Society from its
inception in 1660 to the present day (excluding the current Fellowship) and
includes some 8,000 figures from the history of science. Names such as Sir
Christopher Wren (FRS 1663), Sir Humphry Davy (FRS 1803) and Charles Darwin
(FRS 1839) appear alongside their contemporaries who have been all but lost
to history. The aim of the five-year project is to bring together the
diverse printed sources relating to the history of the Fellowship into a
fully searchable database. Election certificates are being transcribed,
allowing users to search for research interests and also to identify links
between individual scientists through candidates' proposers. Other
biographical elements include education, career details and family
relationships; other information includes references to obituaries of
Fellows published by the Royal Society. The next aim of the project is to
scan portraits of Fellows and attach these to the biographical records.

The Resource is now available via the Royal Society's website:
www.royalsoc.ac.uk/library/index.html , under the link "Online catalogues".
Also available is the library catalogue of the Royal Society, a collection
of history of science and science policy, built around the Royal Society's
work and Fellows.

Work on the Sackler Archive Resource is ongoing and additional information
would be most welcome. Comments regarding either the Resource or the
library catalogue can be sent to: sackler@royalsoc.ac.uk

Aim of the Meeting
==================

Nowadays, we regard cosmology as a modern science, but cosmological
thoughts have been part of humanity throughout history. All cultures have
a cosmology, because such questions have been asked by all peoples for as
long as we have wondered at the stars. The explanations have varied from
culture to culture, and from time to time, but all of them seek to impose
an order upon the cosmos, so as to make it accessible to the human mind.
This is just as true of scientific as of pre-scientific cosmologies.

Astronomy has been one of the main scientific areas (the mother of sciences
in the Arab tradition) to investigate physical laws using Mathematics since
the beginning of early scientific developments. And yet, there is more to
it. Astronomy, being the most immediate and useful area of Science at our
disposal, had the power to link different civilizations, cultures and
religions throughout the evolution of humankind.

While Astronomy withered in Medieval Europe, it flourished in Islam.
Renaissance astronomers learned from the texts of Islamic scholars who had
preserved and transformed the Science of the Ancient Greek and Arab
cultures.

Modern Cosmology originates from this historical stage of cultural
revolution which brought new scientific concepts into the mathematical
framework of Islamic Astronomy.

The Mediterranean area has been the cradle of modern Astronomy and
Cosmology and still retains the connections between Ancient and Modern
Cosmology.

This meeting wants to re-discover these ties in the light of our current
knowledge of the Universe, of the origin of time and space, in the spirit
of the ancient travellers guided by the stars.
