(N.Morgan) The life of Albert Einstein and his work have always managed to maintain a certain quality of mystery and questions. Now, it has come to light one of his most infamous theories has been uncovered. The Big Bang Theory had a counterpart, from earlier in his career, that has left the science world intrigued. Einstein fought the Big Bang Theory, at least later..



The newly uncovered document shows that Einstein had described essentially the same idea much earlier. “For the density to remain constant new particles of matter must be continually formed,” he writes. The manuscript is thought to have been produced during a trip to California in 1931 – in part because it was written on American note paper.

It had been stored in plain sight at the Albert Einstein Archives in Jerusalem – and is freely available to view on its website – but had been mistakenly classified as a first draft of another Einstein paper. Cormac O’Raifeartaigh, a physicist at the Waterford Institute of Technology in Ireland, says that he “almost fell out of his chair” when he realized what the manuscript was about. He and his collaborators have posted their findings, together with an English translation of Einstein’s original German manuscript, on the arXiv preprint server (C. O’Raifeartaigh et al. Preprint at; 2014) and have submitted their paper to the European Physical Journal.

“This finding confirms that Hoyle was not a crank,” says study co-author Simon Mitton, a science historian at the University of Cambridge, UK, who wrote the 2005 biography Fred Hoyle: A Life in Science. The mere fact that Einstein had toyed with a steady-state model could have lent Hoyle more credibility as he engaged the physics community in a debate on the subject. “If only Hoyle had known, he would certainly have used it to punch his opponents,” O’Raifeartaigh says.

    The main question I have here is how did the Israelis get their hands on the Einstein Archive?

    • ThatsIt!!!

      How else do you think the United States sold it to the highest bidder…guess Israel one that bid. :wink:

      It was in Einstein’s will. He bequeathed his papers to the Hebrew University.

    “Einstein’s Lost Theory Uncovered”

    “Now, it has come to light one of his most infamous theories has been uncovered.”

    Lousy writing. If the theory was “lost” or undiscovered, it could hardly have been “his most infamous” theory, because nobody knew about it.

    Please go back to school and learn how to write.

    Oh and by the way, the bulk of your article is just plain stolen from Davide Castelvecchi’s article in Nature (Feb 24, 2014) on this subject without proper attribution.

    It was easy to see, because your crappy writing is the opening paragraph, which doesn’t match the professional tone of the rest of the article.
