What was Albert Einstein Famous for?

Albert Einstein

1) Albert was mostly famous for his theory of relativity, which laid out the basis for the release of atomic energy. His theory of relativity changed the way we think about space and time

2) In 1905 Einstein calculated how the movement of molecules in a liquid can cause the Brownian motion

3) He proved that Isaac Newton was right about most things, but he proved that Isaac wrong about how gravity affected large objects or objects that were further away

5) Albert was the father of modern physics

4) He established the laws of mass

7) He discovered a huge equation, E=mc2, which showed that energy and matter could be converted into each other

6) Einstein rewrote the laws of nature

8) In the “year of miracles” is when he discovered the Brownian motion, special relativity, the photoelectric effect, and the equivalence of mass and energy

10)Einstein provided confirmation that molecules and atoms actually existed

11)He taught the basic understandings of light, gravity, and time

For all of Alberts findings and new coming theories he was awarded the Nobel prize in 1921. Also the Royal Society of London awarded him the prestigious Copley medal in 1925 for his theory.

9) He also proved that the speed that everybody moved at, measures the speed of light to be 300 million meters per second in a vacuum

12) Albert demonstrated the photoelectric effect, and established that lights behaves like a wave or a particle

Einstein was Jewish. Albert went to a catholic school as a child. He raised his family to be Jewish but then again they didn’t practice the Jewish religon.

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”“Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
