| | 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. |
