Edited photo showing Albert Einstein and Charles Steinmetz standing together. The photograph was originally taken on 23 April 1921 during a demonstration of the Radio Corporation of America's (RCA's) experimental transoceanic communication station at New Brunswick, NJ to a group of distinguished scientists. The photograph originally included a group of 19 scientists. The scientists were all removed except for Einstein and Steinmetz for this image. The fencing behind Einstein was recreated by a photographer. Steinmetz died in 1923, so this photograph was created after his death.
