World’s most famous equation goes up for auction

CNN — A letter written by Albert Einstein that includes the world’s most famous equation is being auctioned off with an estimated value of $400,000.

The letter, written by Einstein to the Polish-American physicist Ludwik Silberstein, was penned in 1946 and contains the only handwritten example of E=MC2 in private possession, according to RR Auction.

The one-page letter shows the equation in the first line, which translates to: “Your question can be answered from the E = mc2 formula, without any erudition. If E is the energy of your system consisting of the two masses, E0 the energy of the masses when they approach infinite distance, then the system’s mass defect is E0 – E / c2.”

The letter will be auctioned along with some of Einstein’s other letters, including one where he writes out his gravitational field equations, and comments on the rise of Hitler and Nazism in 1934.

Bidding will start at $25,000 on Thursday and ends on May 20.
