These docs already have been titled as the Dead Sea Scrolls of physics. After 1986, the Princeton University Press and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, to whom Albert Einstein gave his copyright, have been involved in a huge effort to study some 80,000 papers he left behind. Starting from Friday, when Digital Einstein is announced, anybody with an Internet connection will be able to part in the mails, papers, postcards, notebooks and journals that Einstein left disseminated in Princeton and in other records, attics and shoeboxes all over the world when he died in 1955.

The Einstein Papers Project, presently corrected by Diana Kormos-Buchwald, a lecturer of physics and the history of science at the California Institute of Technology, has by now distributed 13 volumes in print out of expected 30.
The 14th volume, with at least more than 1,000 papers, will be published in January. The digital forms are accessible at einsteinpapers.press.princeton.edu.
