Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879. As a child, Einstein revealed an extraordinary curiosity for understanding the mysteries of science (started only at age 10/11). A typical child (only to his socio-economic class — educated middle class), Einstein took music lessons, playing both the violin and piano — a passion that followed him into adulthood. Moving first to Italy and then to Switzerland, the young prodigy graduated from high-school in 1896.In 1905, while working as a patent clerk in Bern, Switzerland, Einstein had what came to be known as his “Annus Mirabilis” — or “miracle year”. It was during this time that the young physicist obtained his Doctorate degree and published four of his most influential research papers, including the Special Theory of Relativity. In that, the now world famous equation "e = mc2" unlocked mysteries of the Universe theretofore unknown.

Accomplishments

1879 Albert was born in Ulm, Germany. The family moved to Munich when Albert was one year old.1884 The compass When Albert was five he was given a compass by his father. He was fascinated by it and how it worked.1889 He met Max Talmud Max introduced Albert to math and science. Albert was ten years old.1894Albert finishes school Albert finished his schooling in Munich with medical training. He moved to Milan with his family.1895Goes to school in Switzerland Albert moved to Switzerland at 16 years old to attend Aarau Cantonal School.1896Top of the class Albert graduates at the top of his class. He was a year younger than the other students.1901 Hard times Albert slacked off in further schooling, even after doing so well. Because of this he had a hard time finding a good job.1902 The patent office Albert Einstein got a job in the patent office. He used his understanding of math and science in his new position, and it made him happy.1905 Submits his first paper Einstein submitted his first paper on his theory of thermodynamics. It was the first of many.1909 A new job After working at the patent office and writing his theories, Einstein got a job teaching theoretical physics at the University of Zurich.1911 Attends physics conference He was given an invitation to the first-ever world physics conference. He was the youngest physicist there.1913 Theory of gravity He believed science's understanding of gravity was wrong, and he worked on a new theory which he would later test with a solar eclipse.1919 Einstein is famous After publishing his Theory of Relativity and correctly predicting the effects of a solar eclipse, Einstein's name went around the world.1922 Nobel Prize Einstein was awarded his first Nobel Prize. He was on his way to Japan when he got the news.1933 America He visited America for the first time because he feared the rising Nazi party in Germany.1945 War ends World War II ended and Einstein continued his research. He made advances in heat, gravity, and relativity, and he published over 300 scientific reports.1955 Einstein dies Albert Einstein died in April of heart failure.

He explained that light energy came in chuncks or quanta, now called 'photons'. This explanation changed the way researchers thought about the nature of light. Albert discussed the Brownian motion that helped in proving the existence of molecules and he also gave forth explanation regarding the dynamics of individual moving bodies. Last, but not the least, he explained the nature of space and time.

Lasting Impact

Albert Einstein had a great impact to the world. His theories as a physicist are used by present scientists and physicists. His theory was also the basis for nuclear warheads.
