On the matter of the 8.5trillion, I would not be at all surprised, not in the least.
As for Einstein, he is sometimes mentioned in the same scholarly articles as Werner Von Braun, normally because both scientists were migrants from
Germany and were operating at the same time in history, in their various fields. However the link is the history of migrant science in America, rather
than in terms of the work they were doing themselves. Interestingly, Von Braun was a member of both the Nazi Party, and the SS as far as I know, and
Einstein, being Jewish, simply never went home from his holiday in the States when the Nazis took over in Germany, taking citizenship in the US in
1940, if I recall correctly. So not only were the two chaps in different fields, but they would have made for what one could only describe as a
seriously antagonistic partnership, had they ever been applied to the same problem!
