Coming of Age or of Genius

Einstein, when younger, was an average young boy. That is until the age of ten. It was at this time that Einstein started to show extraordinary curiosity for understanding the mysteries of science. This came as a bit of a shock to some, one reason because he didn't start to even talk until the age of three. Then in 1905 he had his "Annus Miribalis" or his "miricle year".

All Around Genius


Indirectly Starting the Nuclear Age

Einstein is known as the "Father of the Atomic Bomb" because in aided the U.S in creating the atomic bomb that landed in Japan. After he heard of what the bomb had done to the people of Japan he is said to have put his head in his hands and said guiltily," What have I done?" Although the reaction some say that if the same thing would have happened he would have done the same thing given the situation.

Einstein Today

The Last Days

Close To Death
