A little Science

100 years ago a worker at a Swiss patent office published a paper that proposed a solution to a little problem with science. This person was a failure in math at school and seemed to be nowhere in life. Today the scientific world recognises that year as the year when theoretical physics was turned upside-down. The paper was the Special Theory of Relativity, the patent office worker was Alber Einstein. It is now 100 years later and the impact of that time is still growing and affecting us, and will continue to in unimainable ways.
