The Life and Times of Albert Einstein
Most of us, if not everyone knows Albert Einstein or have at least heard of him. He is a famous scientist. He is the one who is associated with the famous formula involving the speed of light. And his contributions are always remembered and cited whenever scientific explanations or different concepts are explained and elaborated. But who is Albert Einstein as a person anyway? Is there a biography of Albert Einstein? As far as we know, there is no official biography of this famous scientist, but we will tell you all about his life!
Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879. His father Hermann Einstein was an engineer and his mother was Pauline Einstein. He spent his elementary days in a Catholic school when his family moved to Munich. His curiosity about how some kind of force is deflecting the needles of a compass has in some way led him to be a known scientist today.
When his family moved to Italy, he continued to study in Switzerland and there he had high quality physics teacher and facilities. And when he got employed in a Swiss patent office in Bern, he spent his spare time doing his own works and publications about theoretical physics without any kind of help from anybody.
His works earned him his doctorate degree in Zurich and then a Privatdozent in Berne. It did not take him long to obtain a regular appointment afterwards until he became a director.
He was married twice. And he died on April 18, 1955 leaving a remnant of his great works which until now is still considered as a fundamental concept in the area of theoretical physics. Albert Einstein achieved so much in a short span of time and he contributed a lot through his works throughout his entire life.
