The day the most famous formula was published – level 1


In 1905, Albert Einstein is a young man. He works for a patent office in Switzerland. He also works on his theories about the universe.

It is September 27. Einstein publishes his very famous formula, E=mc². The formula says that inside a small solid object is a lot of energy.

Later, people use this formula when they make an atomic bomb.

Difficult words: patent (an official document which shows that you are the author of a new product), theory (an idea with reasons for why it is true), publish (to write in a newspaper, a magazine, or a book), formula (some letters and numbers which show a scientific idea called a law), solid (hard).
