Thoughts while Plummeting

By Robin Ince. An unusual schoolboy becomes engrossed by the science he sees all around him and goes off in pursuit of 'the happiest thought'. Read by Carolyn Pickles.

2015 marks the centenary of the publication of Einstein's General Theory of Relativity changing our understanding of space and time forever. Turning to science for inspiration, three writers explore the notion of relativity from their own unique viewpoint in this specially commissioned series for Radio 4.

Taking Einstein's theory as their inspiration, three writers explore the notion of relativity, taking us to the very edges of space and time, through the prism of sibling rivalry, a flight from war and the daydreams of a lost little boy.

In Robin Ince's 'Thoughts While Plummeting' an unusual schoolboy becomes engrossed by the science he sees all around him and goes off in pursuit of 'the happiest thought'.
