I'm posting here because I wanted to link to Pi Day and Einstein's birthday (March 14).

In addition to 100th anniversary of Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity, this year is particularly special because 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 has the first 10 digits of pi.

For those who want to delve deeper into general relativity, here is a YouTube video by Bob Eagle (DrPhysicsA) explaining Einstein's field equations for beginners.
