4 - The contribution of Einstein in science

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou

In 1879 on March 14, Albert Einstein was born in the town OULM of Germany. He spent his childhood in Munich, where his father ran a small electromechanical company. In 1896 he studies at the Federal Polytechnic of Zurich. There he devoted all of his breathing space in the study of problems and especially to the statistical theory of motion, in the interpretation of the photoelectric effect, based on the assumption of natural quantum PLANCK, the theory of restricted relativity that modified the laws of Newtonian mechanics and pointed the equivalence of Mass and Energy. At 1916 he started publishing his theory of gravity and general laws, which in 1919 found combination in the theory of the general relativity. In 1921 he was awarded with the Nobel Prize in Physics. His influence in modern physics is boundless. The change that he caused in the history of science can be compared to that of Newton. The theory of relativity shook the philosophical thought of that era. The theories of Einstein demonstrate that our Universe has four dimensions, that it is finished, but without limitation, that the space is curved from the mass, at this kind of space two parallel lines are cut in a straight line that returns to the original point. Often we could hear in a conversation that Einstein is guilty for the crime of the atomic bomb. Although I am not a zionist, I believe that this genius is wronged by these words, because in 1945 Einstein was opposed to the construction of the atomic bomb and had officially retired from the scientific activity. I hope that this clarification will be accepted worldwide as a message of Einstein’s innocence, of that man who always wanted his work to be used for the benefit of all Humanity, that passionately loved Albert Einstein.
