Hmm? "and that it took others to solve Einstein's own equations....."
What do you mean by that Naty?
His equations was his own as far as I can see? And worked in the presentation of them he gave. That you can continue to manipulate them and get more or less far fetched outcomes that he hadn't considered, as 'time travels' for example, doesn't minimize what he did, to me.
He was one of a kind.
