Holy Friday

A very brief post today, only to celebrate the date. Today is a sacred day for physics: 101 years ago, in 1905, Einstein published his paper "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" (the original work is "Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter K├Ârper", Annalen der Physik. 17:891-921, June 30, 1905).

It was the starting of Special Relativity and the beginning of a revolution in physics. You can find more about it in Wikipedia's "Annus Mirabilis Papers".

Have a nice day! :)
