The document was offered for sale at Christie’s auction house in Paris on Tuesday

A manuscript containing the calculations of mathematical equations Albert Einstein made while trying to formulate his theory of relativity has been auctioned for 11 million euros.

The sale at Christie’s auction house in Paris broke the record for selling a signed scientific document.

It is one of only two papers that show the theoretical work of the physicist in his great scientific achievement.

This theory, published in 1915, changed mankind’s understanding of space, time and gravity.
