While he made inventions and help America in World War II, he had a turning point in his career. In 1905, Albert Einstein's “miracle year” was the year that stood out in science forever. During this year, Albert Einstein made four theories that will never be forgotten. The first theory he made “showed that light could be created as particles as well as waves.” In the second theory, he proved the existence of atoms and molecules. The third theory, which is a special theory of relativity, said that there was no such thing as absolute space and time. The fourth and last theory “noted an equivalence between energy and mass described as, the most famous equation in all of Physics, E=mc²” (Isaacson). The year 1905 will go down in history science history forever. Without Einstein's “miracle year”, who knows how much we would know today about science. Overall, Albert Einstein created many theories and was a very smart and clever scientist, but the year 1905 will always be remembered as the year that changed
