Albert EinsteinEinstein was born on March 14, 1879, in Ulm Germany. He lived there withhis parents, Herman and Pauline.
Einstein attended a Catholic School near hishome. But, at age 10, Einstein was transferred to the “Luitpold Gymnasium”,where he learned Latin, Greek, History, and Geography. Einstein’s father wantedhim to attend a university but he could not because he did not have a diplomafrom the Gymnasium. But there was a solution to this problem over the Alps, inZurich.
There was The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology which did notrequire a diploma to attend. The one thing it did require was applicant to passan entrance exam. But then yet another problem arose most scholars were 18 whenthey entered the institute, and Einstein was only 16. In Berne, on January 6, 1903; Einstein married Mileva Maric.Order now
Thetwowitnesses at the small, quiet wedding, were Maurice Solovine and ConardHabicht. After the wedding, there was a meal to celebrate at a local restaurant. But no honeymoon. After the meal, the newlyweds returned to their new home.
Itwas a small flat, about 100 yards away from Bere’s famous clock tower. Uponreturning home, a small incident occured, that was to occur many timesthroughout Einstern’s life; he had forgotten his key. A year later, in 1904 theyhad a child, Hans Albert. In that same year, he recieved a job at the swisspatent office. In 1905, three of Einstein’s 4 famous papers; “about a ‘heuristical’perspective about the creation and modulation of light, about the movement of instill liquids mixed objects supported by the molecularkinetical theory of heatand about the electrodynamics of moving objects”. In autumn of 1922 Einsteinreceived the Nobel Prize for Physics, for his work on the photoelectric effect.
He did not receive the prize for his “theory of relativity” because it wasthought that at the time it did not meet the criteria of something that a NobelPrize is awarded for. So when the prize was awarded to him, they said it wasawared to him for his work on the photoelectric effect, if his theory ofrelativity is proven false, and if his theory of relativitywas proven correct,the prize was for that. Einstein died on April 18, 1955. He died of “leakage of blood from ahardened aorta”. And he refused the surgery that could have saved his life. Thedoctors told him that he could go anytime from a minute to a few days.
AndEinstein still refused the surgery. The day passed quietly, and on Starurdaymorning, Einstein seemed to be better, but then Einstein began to have intensepain His nurse called the doctor who arrived quickly, and persuaded Einsteinthat he would be better in a hospital, an ambulance was called, and Einsteinwent the the hospital. On Sunday he told his daugther “Don’t let the housebecome a museum.” He died the next day.
