The original manuscript of Albert Einstein's groundbreaking theory of relativity has gone on display in its entirety for the first time.

The Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Jerusalem began exhibiting the 46-page handwritten document on Sunday as part of its 50th anniversary celebration.

In the document, Einstein demonstrated an expanding universe and explained how gravity can bend space and time. The theory, first published in 1916, remains a pivotal breakthrough in modern physics.

Einstein contributed the manuscript to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1925. The university is lending the document to the academy for its anniversary celebration.
