In 1905 Einstein found from relativity that there is an absolute light barrier. He reiterated his finden in 1916, writing, …We conclude that in the theory of relativity the velocity c plays the part of limiting velocity, which can neither be reached nor exceeded by any real body. Poincaré and Lorentz did not share Einstein s view of relativity in that regard. Nor, later, did Fermi and Teller it seems. There were others who hesitated to come forward. Then in a 1921 lecture and a 1922 look, sidelights on Relativity, Einstein wrote (pp. 35- 6), Poincaré is right.
