Einstein might NOT have been okay. Think about how fast the galaxy actually rotates per minute. Besides, not taking that into effect, the time machine might have materialized inside that hill.
I think the flux capacitor is able to take the time machine the the same relative location in the space/time continuum, otherwise the DeLorean's first test run could have been disastrous.
