Another Albert Einstein

Einstein was a great man who contributed many
theories and ideas to the world of science. Some
people considered him one of the smartest human
beings alive. The theory of relativity is also said to
be “held as the human thought of highest quality.
Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany in
1879. In 1894, Einstein’s family moved to Milan.
Einstein went to Switzerland, and he attended
Aarau Secondary School. There, he received his
Swiss Citizenship. Afterwards, Einstein returned
back to his home, Ulm Germany, and studied to
become a mathematics and physics teacher. Later
in 1902-1909, he worked at the patent office, as
an examiner in Bern. He obtained his doctorate
while working there. During this time he developed
the theory of relativity, in 1905, which explained
the photoelectric effect and studied the motion of
atoms. The theory, E=mc explained that mass and
energy were equivalent. Later in 1908, he became
a lecturer at the University of Bern. Then
eventually in 1909, he became a physics teacher
back at the University of Bern. As you can see,
Einstein had a very busy academic life. By this
time, Einstein’s incredible knowledge had
attracted many scientists. In 1910, he became a
professor at the German University, in Prague. By
1913, Einstein had become famous internationally.
In 1921, Einstein was awarded with the Nobel
Prize for his incredible work in physics, especially
his theory of Relativity. In 1933, he accepted a
place at Princeton, the institute for advanced
study. Einstein became very happy in 1940, when
he became an American citizen. Although, Einstein
was very worried about the possible use of
Atomic Energy in bombs. He wrote to the
President of the United States, Franklin Roosevelt,
to investigate this. Einstein wanted world peace
and disagreed with wars. Here is a more detailed
explanation of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity.
Einstein\'s early work on the theory of relativity
(1905) dealt only with systems or observers in
uniform (unaccelerated) motion with respect to
one another and is referred to as the special theory
of relativity; among other results, it demonstrated
that two observers moving at great speed with
respect to each other will disagree about
measurements of length and time intervals made in
each other\'s systems, that the speed of light is the
limiting speed of all bodies having mass, and that
mass and energy are equivalent. Overall Einstein
had wished that his theories would be very simple
and easy to understand, but no matter how simple
he made them, they were still hard to interpret.
Maybe, this was one of his only flaws in the work
he did. Einstein was fascinated by the works of
Max Plancle and other leading scientists. Max was
concerned with the phenomenon of energy being
emitted in tiny quantities from objects. Sadly, in
1955, Albert Einstein died in Princeton. Even
though, he was still world renown for his great
contributions to the science and the world. People
wonder if he had lived would the world have been
a better place, but even without the great
knowledge on Einstein we can still work together
to achieve what Albert Einstein had achieved.
