Everyone knows that Albert Einstein was one of the greatest physicists of the early twentieth century. 2015 marks 100 years since he published his theory of gravitation, which keeps us on the floor and keeps the earth in its orbit around the Sun. He called this the general theory of relativity and we call it GR for short, and carry it in our pockets today.
