Albert Einstein and E=mc 2

From the July 2002 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Albert Einstein is probably best known for his special theory of relativity, which presented the formula E=mc 2 —that is, energy is equal to mass times the speed of light squared. He was only 26 years old when he made this discovery, and he spent much of the rest of his life working on the general theory of relativity, which he announced in 1926, and on the unified theory of relativity, which he did not complete.
