Einstein’s Invention of Cosmology
Monday, March 28, 2005

In 2005, we are celebrating the World Year of Physics as the centenary of Einstein's annus mirables – the year of miracles!

In 1905, Einstein shook the world three times. In a series of five papers and his Ph D thesis, he demonstrated the reality of molecules by measuring them and explained Brownian motion (which had bothered biologists for some time). He explained the photoelectric effect. His paper on special relativity changed the world.

In this article, I will discuss how his general theory led him to formulate "cosmology" the study of the Universe as a whole.
Full story from The Daily Times.
