Einstein is an icon of the previous age, and as such was certainly a path-maker. That does not mean he was correct in everything he said, especially in an age where everything from it, is now considered to be antiques. Edison was great too, but he doesn't belong in 2002, in spite of his accomplishments.

The huge difference between Edison and Einstein, is that Edison was a practical physicist, whereas Einstein was a theoretical physicist.

Edison's final lightbulb WORKED, even tho' his many previous experiments did not work at all, or only partially. Einstein's Relativity is full of holes and impossible paradoxes, in spite of some of it apparently working. It is no lightbulb.

If you want to go to the stars, you had better start questioning Einstein. Relativity forbids superluminal starships.
