Albert Einstein on the superficiality of journos

15 October 2008

In a hand-written letter (in German) to a member of the public who had written to him criticising his special theory of relativity, Albert Einstein chides journalists for failing to understand one of his greatest scientific achievements:

“The twaddle that the theory is extremely difficult to understand, is complete nonsense, spread out by superficial journalists.”

The letter is among many that will go under the hammer at an auction in London on Thursday.
