Einstein’s manuscript auctioned for an even more astronomical sum than expected

The sum is astronomical, logical when it comes to Albert Einstein: a manuscript in which the famous physicist prepared his theory of general relativity was auctioned for the record amount of 11.6 million euros, Tuesday at Paris.

Previous records for an Einstein manuscript were $ 2.8 million (2.4 million euros) in 2018 in New York City for a letter about God, and $ 1.56 million (1.39 million euros) ‘euros) in 2017 in Jerusalem for a letter on the secret of happiness.
