Albert Einstein's career spans the end of the imperial era and the nascent tidal wave of dictatorial democracies. His accomplishments spearheaded if not in fact at least in publicity, an enormous change in the absolutism of time, space and reality of Newton. It was Einstein's relativity that captured the minds of the media, society and the world creating a new world of amorphous thought. Gone were the unchanging truths of the past in science, government and religion. Now a new relativistic period was heralded that changed the world for a hundred years. It is important in discussing the achievements of Dr. Einstein to specify that his most important contribution to physics for which he was awarded a Nobel Prize was not E=mc2 nor was it Special or General Relativity. Instead, he received the distinction for his work on light quantization as described in one of his 1905 papers.

These papers covered diverse subject matters from the nature of light, suspension of particles in a fluid, the nature of different frames of reference and the equivalence of matter and energy.
Each of the above were described in the papers cited below that will be described in more detail in the future
1- "On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light"
2-"On the Motion of Small Particles Suspended in a Stationary Liquid, as Required by the Molecular Kinetic Theory of Heat"
3- "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies"
4- "Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?"
Patents - Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein authored about fifty patents that are to be described later herein. One of the most simple was a refrigeration system that originated from newspaper accounts relating to an accident leaking toxic fumes into a home. The refrigeration system patent was authored along with another inventor Leo Szilard. Mr. Szilard was also a prolific inventor having filed for patents relating to X-ray Sensitive cell and improvements in mercury vacuum lamps. Some of his other patents included concepts relating to the cyclotron and linear accelerators. Mr. Szilard also contributed to the neutron chain reaction discovery whereupon he would file and receive a patent with Enrico Fermi for the first nuclear reactor in 1955 Einstein in Szilard .
The Einstein-Szilard patent, however, whilst bought by Electrolux remained commercially untenable as it used Butane within its working. The breathing of butane has various possible side effects include a feeling of dizziness euphoria, sleepiness, blood pressure disorders, narcotic effect, asphyxia, heart problems and other problems. Today it is estimated that Butane is one of the most widely abused chemicals in the world As a result of these effects, the patent of Szilard and Einstein was not commercially practical.
