The theory of relativity is the study of space, time, and gravity. His formula E=mc2( Mass-Energy equivalence)is a universal mathematic equation still used today. He had a goal to achieve a formula that will account in one breath for Newton’s falling apple, the transmission of light and radio waves, the stars, and the composition of matter and he performed that goal.
