- ALBERT EINSTEIN BIOGRAPHY
- ALBERT EINSTEIN, PHYSICIST, Creator of the
THEORY OF RELATIVITY (E=mc2), who IS the DEFINITION of GENIUS!
"At a very distant date in the future, the average mind may surpass that of
Galileo" - Einstein
was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Germany. Einstein grew up and
was educated in Munich. As a child, he was considered very slow
to learn to speak. By the age of 6 years old, he began learning
which he continued playing throughout his life. Einstein was a
and integral calculus
by the age of 16, but he was very rebellious and was thrown out
of school. He finally obtained a diploma from the Cantonal
School in Aarau, Switzerland and became a Swiss citizen in 1901.
Einstein received his diploma at Federal Institute of Technology
in Zurich, Switzerland and he finished his doctoral degree in
Bern at age 26 and began writing his famous scientific papers.
- Between 1901 and 1904
Einstein published papers on physics. In 1905, Albert Einstein
published his paper on the photoelectric effect
and the special theory of relativity,
which introduced the famous E=mc2 equation:
Energy = Mass multiplied by the square of the velocity of light.
He declared that measurements of time and space are not
- By 1916, Albert Einstein
published the famous "The Foundations of the
General Theory of Relativity".
His theory was proved in 1919
by English astronomical expeditions when they photographed an
eclipse of the sun. Einstein suddenly became the most
famous scientist in the world and give him huge popularity.
- In 1921, Albert Einstein
received the Nobel Prize in Physics
for his brilliant work in theoretical physics. In 1933, he
accepted a post at the Institute for Advanced
Study in Princeton.
Although he was known as a pacifist, Einstein influenced
President Franklin Roosevelt
to begin the Manhattan Project
in 1939 for the production of an atomic bomb,
using Einstein's theories (the speed of light is a large number
and is multiplied by itself, so just a small number can release
a massive amount of nuclear energy.) In 1940, Einstein became an
- In his lifetime, Einstein
published over 300 papers and his genius creation of the famous
led to the development of nuclear fission and
the atomic bomb. In
1955, at the age of 76, Einstein suffered a rupture of an
abdominal aortic aneurysm. Einstein refused surgery and died on
April 18, 1955. The pathologist at Princeton Hospital took out
Einstein's brain during the autopsy, with the hopes of finding
out what made this genius so brilliant.
