Throughout the years there has been many great inventors and scientist that have renovated our generation. Albert Einstein is one of them, he is known for many great things and he is a man of many accomplishments. He is also known to be the “most influential physicist of the 20‘” century!” As of today, we still use a lot of what came from Albert Einstein’s theories. All of the information he left behind was used to develop new things like the television, remote control devices, automatic door openers, lasers, and DVD players.

He left the foundation to a lot of what we have today, when Albert Einstein was little it took him 3 years to learn how to speak; his mother got so frustrated at that moment it’s said, that his own mother, thought he was going to be a slow child.

he still kept going.

His friends and family also helped him, by buying him books, a friend named Max Talmud; a medical student and a friend to the family, he bought him some science books. His uncle got him a geometry book when he was 12, within two years he started to teach himself calculus! Albert Einstein dropped out of high school, it was difficult for him to get ajob anywhere since he didn’t have a diploma. He even got reject by the Swiss military because he had flat feet!

This year for him was known as “Annus Mirabilis” or ”miracle year” He was able to get his Doctorate degree. Also in this year he was able to publish four of the most galvanizing research papers that unlocked many mysteries of the universe.

One included the “Special theory of Relativity” where the famous equation “e = chZ” was introduced. When Einstein completed his General theory of relativity, in 1915 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics! He was sent to international superstardom, his name was known everywhere and his name became a saying where itjust meant, “genius,” When Einstein went to the United States as a guest professorship in Princeton was also the same time Adolf Hitler went into power, and became Chancellor of Germany. Einstein decided to take the professorship at the prestigious Institute for Advanced Study. It was said, he was never going back to Germany mainly because, and he felt his life was in danger. He felt that Nazi organization was planning to kill him! Other Europeans fled too because of the Nazis taking over the United States. Some of them knew plans about the Nazis that they were developing an atomic weapon and sent Washington DC.

It wasn’t till Einstein and another scientist like Leo Szilard wrote to President Franklin D. Roosevelt to warn him about the possibility of Nazi bombs! The President then later met with Einstein, and another scientist to start the Manhattan project! Since, he could not risk the Germans might develop the first atomic bomb. Albert become ill in 1949, he stopped traveling and started to go easier on his workload. He had to reject the offer to preSIdency of Israel in 1952.

I will do it elegantly,” Thomas Stoltz Harvey removed Albert Einstein’s brain for preservation to be studied by doctors of neuroscience. Although Thomas did not get consent from his family members to do this operation he still did it. The rest of his body was cremated and scattered in an undisclosed location.
