This German born physicist is considered one of
the world"s greatest thinkers in history. Not only
did he shape the way people think of time, space,
matter, energy, and gravity but he also was a
supporter of Zionism and peaceful living. Einstein
was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm Germany,
and spent most of his youth living in Munich,
where his family owned a small electric machinery
shop. He attended schooling in Munich, which he
found unimaginative and dull. In addition to this he
taught himself Euclidean geometry at the age of
12. Later his family was forced to move to Milan,
Italy where he then decided to withdraw from
school at the age of 15. Eventually he realized that
he had to finish secondary school, which he took
in Arrau, Switzerland. On the other hand he still
often skipped class to study physics on his own
much like myself. At age 22 he became a Swiss
citizen and in 1903 married a women named
Mileva Marec, whom which he had two sons with
but nonetheless latter divorced as to marry his
cousin in 1919. Which is unlike me. On the other
hand he did publish five major research papers at
the age of 26. The first one getting him his
doctorate in 1905. The first paper was on
Brownian motion, which is a zigzag motion of
microscopic particles in suspension. He suggested
that the movement was the result of the random
motion of molecules of the suspension medium as
they rebound off suspended particles. The second
paper laid the base of the photon, or quantum
theory of light. It said that light is made off
separate packets of energy, titled quanta or
photons. The paper remade the theory of light.
Also explaining the emissions of electrons from
some solid objects when they are struck by light.
Televisions are practical applications of Einstein"s
discoveries. The third paper, which he began as an
essay at age 16, contained the "special theory of
relativity." He showed that time and motion are
relative to the observer, if the speed of light is
constant and natural laws are the same
everywhere in the universe. The fourth was a
mathematical addition to the special theory of
relativity. This is where he presents his famous
E=mc², also known as the energy mass
equivalence. Compton"s Interactive Encyclopedia
translates it as "(E) inherent in mass (m) equals the
mass multiplied by the velocity of light squared
(c²)." His fifth paper was his general theory of
relativity. In which he proposed that gravity is not
a force, a previously accepted theory but it"s a
curved field in the space-time continuum created in
the presence of mass. In 1921 Einstein won the
Nobel Prize for physics for the confirmation of his
general theory of relativity although the other
papers where still considered controversial. In
1933 he moved to the U.S.A where he became a
citizen in 1940. Einstein died in Princeton, NJ, on
April 18, 1955. But the knowledge he passed still
caries through tomorrow.
