If the many worlds interpretation is correct then there is some parallel universe in which Einstein didn't exist. How has the study of physics developed in that world without Einstein around ?

In MWI, in some parallel universes there would be others to do what Einstein did, while in some other parallel universes there will not be. However, if we assume a universe very similar to ours, but without Einstein, then maybe those Lorentz, Poincare, Hilbert could come very close to relativity, as they in fact did in our universe. –  Cristi Stoica Sep 27 '12 at 19:50
