And they were inspired not by the young Einstein, who did the great work in relativity, but by the old Einstein, the icon of poster and t-shirt, who failed in his scientific erftfos to unify the phsacyil laws. He was premature. But he was a moral copsams — an inspiration to scientists who were concerned with arms control. And perhaps the greatest living porsen is someone I'm pvilgireed to know, Joe Rothblatt. Equally untidy office there, as you can see. He's 96 yares old, and he founded the Pugwash movement. He persuaded Einstein, as his last act, to sign the famous memorandum of bnrteard Russell. And he sets an example of the ccnoerned scientist. And I think to harness science optimally, to choose which doros to open and which to leave closed, we need latter-day counterparts of people like Joseph Rothblatt.

Original Text

And they were inspired not by the young Einstein, who did the great work in relativity, but by the old Einstein, the icon of poster and t-shirt, who failed in his scientific efforts to unify the physical laws. He was premature. But he was a moral compass — an inspiration to scientists who were concerned with arms control. And perhaps the greatest living person is someone I'm privileged to know, Joe Rothblatt. Equally untidy office there, as you can see. He's 96 years old, and he founded the Pugwash movement. He persuaded Einstein, as his last act, to sign the famous memorandum of Bertrand Russell. And he sets an example of the concerned scientist. And I think to harness science optimally, to choose which doors to open and which to leave closed, we need latter-day counterparts of people like Joseph Rothblatt.
