Rocket Man

Justin Dowd is a fourth year physics and math major here at Northeastern. This phenomenal “chalkimation” video about Einstein’s daydream discovery of relativity won him a ticket to outer space (yeah…outer space) through the Metro’s Race for Space competition. Not only is Dowd brilliant enough to explain relativity in simple terms, he’s also an artist (he drew all of the beautiful chalk images in the video), a musician (he composed and played the piano tune in the video) and a self-proclaimed “jock.” Can we say renaissance man?
