There is no indication that Einstein’s family or anyone else close to him, even Besso, had any idea of any of this. In fact, no one outside Mileva’s family suspected it 36 Einstein When Young until Einstein’s letters to her appeared in the late 1980s. The baby, a girl, appears to have been born in late January or early February 1899, because on February 4th of that year, Einstein wrote Mileva, My beloved sweetheart! Poor, dear sweetheart, you must suffer enormously if you cannot even write to me yourself!

And our dear Lieserl too must get to know the world from this aspect right from the beginning! I hope that you will be up and around again by the time my letter arrives.

It was he who first maintained that light waves combine by “superimposing” on one another to produce a resultant wave. Huygens, in contrast, had maintained that this was true only in limited cases. Young applied these ideas to one of the most famous series of experiments ever done in physics. ” Figure 7 To demonstrate diffraction, we can make two holes a few millimeters apart in a screen and let light from a distant source shine on the Image Not Available screen. If we then put a second target screen behind the first, so that it can be illuminated by the light passing through the holes, 50 The Miracle Year two patches of light will appear on the target screen when the holes in the first screen are large.
