How much Knowledge about science and math has changed since Einstein?

  1. Aug 20, 2014 #1
    This is a question about how much general knowledge about science and math has changed since Einstein's death about 60 years ago. What are some ideas in math and science that have been discovered that Einstein would have had no knowledge of?

    Bell's theorem and related stuff about entangled particles, and the experiments that have been done to test them.
