This equation of special relativity describes time dilation.Einstein makes the list again with his formulas for special relativity, which describes how time and space aren't absolute concepts, but rather are relative depending on the speed of the observer. The equation above shows how time dilates, or slows down, the faster a person is moving in any direction.

Albert Einstein's equation for the General Theory of Relativity, on a red background. General relativity generalises special relativity and Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time, or spacetime.

The quantum mechanical description of the world is incomplete as the Schrödinger equation is not Lorentz invariant and therefore fails to describe relativistic particles. Including special relativity into the frame of quantum mechanics leads to Dirac's equation which is Lorentz invariant but has yet another problem.

Entangled Particles Reveal Even Spookier Action Than Thought. his finding comes from a close look at quantum entanglement, in which two particles that are "entangled" affect each other even when separated by a large distance. Einstein found that his theory of special relativity meant that this weird behavior was impossible, calling it "spooky."
