By Robert L. Piccioni Ph.D.

most folks understand that Einstein was once a superb scientist, yet many imagine his theories are so esoteric and in simple terms educational that they have got not anything to do with our day-by-day lives.


In our technology-driven society, the place even toothbrushes comprise microcomputers, Einstein’s legacy is in every single place. This ebook explores the marvelous measure to which all of us depend upon his discoveries.

This publication was once desiged to be relaxing and enlightening, for either those that love technological know-how, and those that worry physics and are allergic to math. every one bankruptcy describes in simple English whatever Einstein came across and indicates why this discovery is critical to you.

Some declare that if Einstein hadn’t made those discoveries, absolutely another individual might have…eventually. although, a few of Einstein’s discoveries are so outstanding that with out his genius they could stay undiscovered at the present time, even after a hundred years.

So, what will we owe to Einstein? For starters, how about:
Solar cells
Cell phones
Laser printers
Nuclear weapons
Bar code scanners
Digital electronics
Inertial navigation
Laser diversity finding
MRI physique scanners
Automatic door openers
Laser eye and center surgery
Magnetically levitated trains
Digital cameras and video cameras
Internet and cell communication
Our strongest telescopes and microscopes
And, our knowing of our position within the cosmos

Not too shabby for only one man.
