Wally: Wow. Einstein's theory of relativity is 100 years old. Val: You mean the Einstein's theory of relativity. Wally: That's what I said. Val: No...look at the apstrophe. The placement of yours says one Einstein. Mine says more than one. Wally: Two? Val: Two Einstein's created the theory. Albert and his wife, Mileva. They met at university. She was a brilliant mathematician. They worked out the theory together, at their kitchen table, in 1905. He never admitted it publicly...but he gave her the nobel prize money! Mileva Maric. Just google her. An amazingly tough woman. Cared for their schizophrenic son all by herself. Einstein, meanwhile, forced her to give their first child up for adoption, had numerous affairs, ruined several marriages and failed to produce any significant physics work after his collaboration with Mileva ended. The least we can do is give Mileva her apostrophe. A Stone Soup herstory lesson
