Prof. Albert Einstein’s latest contribution to science is a “cosmic bridge” which will aid in linking the infinitesimal atom and the heavenly astronomic system into one unified system, it was disclosed on Friday.

Working in collaboration with Dr. N. Rosen at the Institute of Advanced Study at Princeton, Prof. Einstein evolved a series of mathematical equations which prove that space and matter are phases of the same thing.

The announcement of the new theory was made in an article in the Physical Review. His new theory presupposes a new particle, much smaller and simpler than the previously discovered atom and proton.

This “bridge particle” between space and matter he obtained by combining the use of the mathematics of gravitation and electromagnetism. He concludes that a particle is mathematically a form of space.
