The Man Who Changed The Universe
Albert Einstein Physicist

Died from old age
Albert was in on March 14 in 1879. He was the first born son of Hermann and Pauline Einstein. His father owned an electrical equipment plant. After failed success, they family moved to Munich where they had their daughter Maja.
Even though he was Jewish, Albert received schooling from a Catholic elementary school. He then enrolled at the Luitpold Gymnasium. This was when he stared to think about science and mathematics.
Albert talked about how particles in liquid moved rapid and randomly. Albert hypothesized that the visible motion of particles was caused by random movement that make up the liquid. His second talked about the photoelectric effect. He wrote that the puzzle was that the number of electrons released wasn't a function of lights intensity nor color. The third paper is what everyone knows him for. This paper explained his Special Theory of Relativity. This paper is what gave us E=mc^2. The paper discussed the relationship between two observations in two different areas moving at the same rate.

However, after he moved to America before WW1, the U.S. government hired him to help create the Nuclear Bomb, due to the fear of Hitler making it first
In His Words
"Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding."
He was also told he was a great scientist, but he said
"Most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character"
Words for Him
"Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity are both accepted as scientific fact even though they're mutually exclusive. Albert Einstein spent the second half of his life searching for a unifying truth that would reconcile the two." Roy H. Williams
