Sitting alone on the city bus, Einstein believes he has glimpsed the secret of the universe.

For Einstein, space was this place where stuff was. And he didn't do anything, he had stuff in it. And so space combined with time to become spacetime is a more dynamic understanding of this arena that everything takes place in. It's becoming more alive in the way. He's seeing very very outlandish and very very strange things.

Rarely had anything so radically been submitted to Europe's most prestigious scientific journals.

He was a complete outsider to the physics of his state, as he was being in Switzerland, being a patent clerk and yet he was ambitious enough to think that he could challenge the whole of this established physics at this time.

You always hope that would be total euphoria that everybody will say this is a, you know, a huge step forward in the subject. But that rarely happens.

Whatever one's concept of time, it passes slowly for Einstein at the patent office.

He submits papers to important scientific journals, the best scientific journals and hopes for the best. And the best doesn't come for a while.

He was anxious. What was the reaction of the physics community to his great paper? Silence.

Einstein was very depressed.

Three, four, five months, must have felt like eternity to him.

And then, Einstein's papers fall into the hands of perhaps the one man who can fully understand him--Max Planck.

Max Planck is a great theoretical physicist in Europe.

Planck was the editor of Annalen der Physik in Berlin.

The most important physics journal of the time.

He was Max Planck, reading this paper from this unknown physicist. And Max Planck says, ah, there is something here.

Planck recognized immediately that this was an important paper from an important young scholar.

The Relativity paper was published in June 1905. That volume, number 17, is now one of the most famous publications in the history of science. At the time, Einstein wasn't even a scientist.
