Every human being can make mistakes, even the geniuses never forget that. remember that even albert einstein, had made mistakes Some of them were very serious and did the job of the scientist to stand still for more than three years (until all the points were finally balanced). Check out now some of the biggest mistakes that one of the greatest geniuses the world has committed in his career:
1. Try to hold too many things together
albert einstein was well known for combining a range of knowledge that no one had thought to connect. This happened with the Theory of Relativity, for example, when the scientist was able to add mass, energy, time and space in a unique and complex theory. But such result was only achieved after many years of study. Early in his career, the physicist did not succeed either.
In one of his first papers, albert einstein tried to join the second law of thermodynamics (which says that heat always tends to pass from the hotter to the cooler) with laws of mechanics.Through calculations of probability, said a small package of heat could be responsible for heating a entire environment. The problem is that the concepts and mechanics were not employed (for thermodynamic and mechanical derivations have already been made).
2. Aside time and space to change only one
Theories of Relativity are not very easy for almost anyone. In fact, not even albert einstein They were easy to understand. At the beginning of their work, tried to study the physical equation of a relationship curves space-time. For him, the equation proved that particles with different speeds, would be affected by different accelerations.
albert einstein could understand that both time and space curves performed on objects with mass, but trying to change only one of two in their calculations. To make matters worse,one of his assistants (who should be the big name in mathematics, in this case) alsomissed the same calculations. During years of mathematical manipulation and frustration until they understand that something was wrong.
3. albert einstein did not believe in black holes
In 1916, shortly after publishing his first treatises on relativity, albert einstein received letters fromone German scientist named Karl Schwarzschild. In the documents, affirmed that the Schwarzschild geometry of space followed curvilinear patterns, which would be one reason that the planets follow orbits around stars.
All was well with the theories until albert einstein realized that the center of corners there were large amounts of matter and gravity disturbances. It would be one different place where everything can be destroyed. albert einstein did not believe that was possible, denying the existence of black holes, which would be discovered years later.
4. He thought he was wrong
In his Theory of Relativity, albert einstein said the universe was expanding. Then reread his works, went on to say that the previous statements did not fit with reality, because the universe should be in static mode. He spent much time trying to find flaws in its original logic, until it created the variable “Lambda”, which could keep the universe expanding, but it could also keep it static.
In short, some say that Lambda has been used for that albert einstein could satisfy the wishes of other scientists without denying others their wills. Years later it was proved that the universe was actually expanding constantly. In other words, albert einstein was right at first, but to think that was wrong, went wrong.
