Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879. He died on April 18, 1955.
He was born in Germany to a Jewish family.
He made many contributions to the field of theoretical physics.
Even when very young, Einstein showed great ability in both math’s and science.
Einstein was naturally curious and had a brilliant analytical mind.
He worked in a patent office evaluating patents for electromagnetic devices not long after he graduated.
He produced perhaps one of the most famous equations ever: E = mc² (energy equals mass multiplied by the speed of light squared).
Einstein is also well known for his theory of relativity. Special relativity being introduced in his 1905 paper “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies” before Einstein developed the theory of general relativity between the years of 1907 and 1915.
He won the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on theoretical physics.
He worked on many other influential theories and projects including: the deflection of light by gravity, Brownian motion, the quantum theory of atomic motion in solids and explanation for capillary action and many more.
Famous Albert Einstein quotes include: "Whether you can observe a thing or not depends on the theory which you use. It is the theory which decides what can be observed."
"Physical concepts are free creations of the human mind, and are not, however it may seem, uniquely determined by the external world."
"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.... I do know that I get most joy in life out of my violin."
"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
