There are few of them, but their life blossoms.
The new XXI century will be the century of the greatest scientific discoveries, because today’s state of many scientific trends can be defined as follows: they are at the very threshold of discovery. Another step, another – and new lights will flash bright, equal to Archimedes, Lomonosov, Newton, Einstein. To me, who is going to devote himself to physics, I want to talk about A. Einstein, the greatest scientist, whose name is on the list of one hundred great men of the XX century. For the new Archimedes, his life is very instructive.
Someday, every person will know more about nature than Einstein knew. But even then people will draw in their labors and the immense power of thought, and the nobility
When the theory was created, it seemed that it was so far from practical application. But before Einstein loomed the ghost of Hitler, armed with an atomic bomb. Intuitive confidence that the work of the great physicist has not only theoretical significance, began to be justified. In 1939, Einstein sent a warning
The sense of responsibility for science – that’s what lived in it together with genius. Einstein was tormented not only by the tragedy of the atomic bomb. He was worried about all the evil that the scientific discoveries used to destroy the world can do to the world. He understood that every discovery, every idea can become a weapon in aggressive hands. And he suffered without seeing the opportunity to prevent it.
To finish it would be desirable somewhere read by comparison of great people with Gulliver. When Gulliver was alive, the Lilliputians heard at night the beating of his heart. Such a feeling was with people, while Einstein was alive. The very thought that in such a land such a person lives with them, inspired in Einstein’s contemporaries confidence in the power and immortality of reason. And then Einstein died. The heart of the giant is silent. People felt it. Previously, such a feeling arose when a large public figure or a brilliant writer was dying. In April 1955, for the first time such a sensation caused the death of the Scientist.
