Albert Einstein

"...which produced the first atomic bomb in 1945."

Einstein's Biographical Facts

  • He was born in 1978 in Ulm, Germany
  • He died on April 18, 1955, in Princeton
  • He was famous for his 3 papers that rewrote physics, and of course, E=MC2
  • His 3 children were: Lieserl (1902), Hans Albert (1904) and Eduard (1910).
  • He thought that the world should give up on atomic weapons (like bombs).

Coming-Of-Age

Einstein started thinking harder (as a smarter person) when he wrote his first paper. This led him to being noticed by a lot of people, because he rewrote the laws of physics, which made him quite popular. It also led him to creating "E=MC2," which makes him most popular today. Many people think he, "...was the most important physicist of the 1900's and one of the greatest and most famous scientists of all time"(Howard). He really did become more helpful to the world of physics, and just because he wrote some papers.

Analysis

His paper led him to a lot of fame. It also led to the laws of physics being rethought. He impacted us today, because a lot of people know of his equation, which is E=MC2, which is actually unfortunate, because his papers were probably more important to physicists today then the rest of the population. His father helped him be encouraged to do these things, because he handed Al a magnetic compass, which made him wonder why it always pointed north. Otherwise, Einstein was pretty independent. He once wondered what it would be like to run along side light, which was an important role in him creating E=MC2. These two things were probably the most relevant things in his growing up.
