Answer:
2005 was called the world year of physics since it was the 100th anniversary of Annus Mirabilis, the year when Einstein published his famous papers. To commemorate the year, 16 giant Es containing quotes by Einstein were erected along Berlin’s famous Unter Del Linden road.

  7. 16 large, red E’s were erected along Unter den Linden boulevard in Berlin, called the “Einstein Mile” in 2005, to commemorate the year of physics.

    2005 was named World Year of Physics in recognition of the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s “Miracle Year,” in which he published four landmark papers.
