What will be in the archive?
The Gravity Archive will hold a comprehensive record of one of the most revolutionary periods of development in the history of science, which led to our modern understanding of the Universe. Rooted in Albert Einstein’s Theory of Gravity, this revolution began in the late 1950s. It continues today, propelled forward by advances in both theory and observation.
From its inception, the Archive will contains extensive information. It includes the Michael Wright Archive, which includes 1.3 million pages of documents, as well as 30,000 hours of audiovisual recordings of lectures, interviews, and conferences.
The archive will grow to include unpublished papers, journals and scientific diaries, lecture notes, and correspondence from many others involved in the gravity revolution. We plan to digitize all existing material, and also to conduct extensive interviews with many of the protagonists.
Such a comprehensive project has never been attempted before. It will constitute the largest physics archive in the world. All of this material will be publicly available online.
