Albert Meets America,1921

“The effect produced by dropping a new thought into an ocean of old ones is like dropping a crystal into a solution: sometimes the crystal dissolves into the liquid and disappears; sometimes it sets the whole mass crystallizing in its own image. Likewise, the effect of a new idea… [like relativity] depends on its coming at the right psychological moment.”
— Edwin Slossom (journalist, 1921)

Journalists are enchanted with Einstein when he arrives in the United States in 1921. He is treated like royalty. Everyone wanted a piece of him. He is the object of hero worship. Compare his reception to the Beatles. Google their names.
