Biggest blunder of Einstein.

  1. May 8, 2012 #1
    Einstein thought the cosmological constant was the biggest blunder of his life.
    however, I think his biggest blunder was refusing uncertainty.
    dou you agree?

    The equivalence of an accelerating reference frame with a gravitational field was a big one.

    Einstein was convinced that E = mc. He wrote an article on it and put a footnote reference on the equation, the second footnote in that paper. He intended to write the following note: "This is the greatest equation ever". However, in his haste, he forgot to add it in.
