Finding Einstein's Molecules Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Finding Einstein's Molecules

Dilon Markols and his team of mostly humanoid underdogs are streaking throughout the galaxy attempting to win the Zilbo, the crowning event in the supremely popular sport of galactic scavenger hunting. The most highly prized item in this hunt is the complete set of molecules which formerly made up one Albert E. Einstein, long dead scientist and megalomaniac.

Piloting a sporty ship that surfs on thought waves, the fledgling team's adventures include extracting a planet from a small dog, escaping the wrath of inflatable life forms, a penguin bombing, and taking on a new teammate, an intelligent rubber ball. Blocking their run for victory are obstacles like the Simolian conglomerate (an invisible headed race favored to win), entrapment in thought space, and perhaps worst of all, an evil fax copy of Einstein himself.
Finding Einstein's Molecules also sheds some off-angled light on the creation and nature of the universe, alternate Earth history, and the sinking of the Titanic.
