From the First Lesson The Most Beautiful of TheoriesIn his youth Albert Einstein spent a year loafing aimlessly You dont get anywhere by not wasting timesomething, unfortunately, that the parents of teenagers tend frequently to forget He was in Pavia He had joined his family, having abandoned his studies in Germany, unable to endure the rigors of his high school there It was the beginning of the twentieth century, and in Italy the beginning of its industrial revolution His father, an engineer, was installing the first electricitygenerating power plants in the Paduan plains Albert was reading Kant and attending occasional lectures at the University of Pavia for pleasure, without being registered there or having to think about exams It is thus that serious scientists are made.After this he registered at the University of Zurich and immersed himself in the study of physics A few years later, in 1905, he sent three articles to the most prestigious scientific journal of the period, the Annalen der Physik Each of these is worthy of a Nobel Prize The first shows that atoms really exist The second lays the first foundation for quantum mechanics, which I will discuss in the next lesson The third presents his first theory of relativity known today as special relativity , the theory that elucidates how time does not pass identically for everyone two identical twins find that they are different in age if one of them has traveled at speed Einstein became a renowned scientist overnight and received offers of employment from various universities But something disturbed him despite its immediate acclaim, his theory of relativity does not fit with what we know about gravity, namely, with how things fall He came to realize this when writing an article summarizing his theory and began to wonder if the law of universal gravity as formulated by the father of physics himself, Isaac Newton, was in need of revision in order to make it compatible with the new concept of relativity He immersed himself in the problem It would take ten years to resolve Ten years of frenzied studies, attempts, errors, confusion, mistaken articles, brilliant ideas, misconceived ideas.Finally, in November 1915, he committed to print an article giving the complete solution a new theory of gravity, which he called The General Theory of Relativity, his masterpiece and the most beautiful of theories, according to the great Russian physicist Lev Landau.There are absolute masterpieces that move us intensely Mozarts Requiem, Homers Odyssey, the Sistine Chapel, King Lear To fully appreciate their brilliance may require a long apprenticeship, but the reward is sheer beautyand not only this, but the opening of our eyes to a new perspective upon the world Einsteins jewel, the general theory of relativity, is a masterpiece of this order Ce texte fait r f rence l dition Reli.In clear, elegant prose, Rovelli guides the reader through a whirlwind tour of some of the biggest ideas in physics
