Hi bobbym,

#5045. Which year was this? The Annus mirabilis papers (from Latin annus mīrābilis, "extraordinary year") are the papers of Albert Einstein published in the Annalen der Physik scientific journal. These four articles contributed substantially to the foundation of modern physics and changed views on space, time, mass, and energy. The annus mirabilis is often called the "miracle year" in English or Wunderjahr in German.

#5046. Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931) was an American inventor and businessman. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric light bulb.
In which year dis the US patent office ruled that Edison's patent was based on the work of William Sawyer and was therefore invalid? Litigation continued for nearly six years,  when a judge ruled that Edison's electric-light improvement claim for "a filament of carbon of high resistance" was valid.

Its volume has been reduced drastically, which has led to an increase in salinity. The soil of the dried-up lake bed has been found to contain salts and other toxic substances.
