| | His major contribution to science was the special and the general theory of **relativity**, which gave a new dimension to that we call today "Modern Physics". |

| | Many people feel frustrated because when they try to understand **relativity**, they find some authors that expound in their books a complex arrangement of equations referring to the mathematical part of the theory, namely, the books are accessible for people with certain levels of knowledge (that is the case of engineers, physicists, mathematicians, among others). |

| | The beauty of **relativity** (as opposed to QM and Strings) is that it IS accessible to us mere mortals and it IS a sensible and beautiful theory, once you strip away everything else and just think about. |
