Albert Einstein :

Albert Einstein Carl Edwards E208 "The important thing is to not stop questioning"

A man of physics:

A man of physics Albert Einstein was born in Ulm,Germany on March 14, 1879 .Even as a child he was very interested in science. 1895 when Albert Einstein appeared for the University Entrance Exam he could only passed in the math and science sections and failed in the rest of the subjects. It was difficult for Albert to find a job after college. He never really focused on what type of cloths he had. Einstein was offered the Presidency of Israel in 1952 but declined it. An element named einsteinium was discovered in 1952 and named in his honor.


Quotes “Imagination is more import ant than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” Quoted in interview by G.S. Viereck , October 26,1929. Reprinted in “Glimpses of the Great”(1930). “Why is it that nobody understands me, yet everybody likes me?”—Albert Einstein --- Quoted in an interview with New York Times , March 12,1944. “I want to know God’s thoughts. The rest are details.”—Albert Einstein --- Quoted by E. Sal aman in “ A Talk with Einstein”, Listener 54 (1955) “Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.”—Albert Einstein --- To Fred Wall, 1933. AEA 31-845 “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” —Albert Einstein --- To Carl Seelig – March 11,1952. AEA 39-013 “Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.” —Albert Einstein --- From an address at the commencement exercises of Swarthmore College, 1938


Childhood Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879. As a boy Einstein revealed an extraordinary curiosity for the mysteries of science. Einstein took music lessons, playing both the violin and piano a passion that followed him into adulthood. Moving first to Italy and then to Switzerland, the young prodigy graduated from high-school in 1896.

Quotes from Albert Einstein2 :

Quotes from Albert Einstein2 "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction." "Imagination is more important than knowledge." "Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love." "I want to know God's thoughts; the rest are details." "The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax." "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." "The only real valuable thing is intuition." "A person starts to live when he can live outside himself." "I am convinced that He (God) does not play dice." "God is subtle but he is not malicious." "Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character." "I never think of the future. It comes soon enough." "The eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility." "Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing." "Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind." "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new." "Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from weak minds." "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." "Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen." "Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it." "The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources." "The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education." "God does not care about our mathematical difficulties. He integrates empirically." "The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking."

The Atomic bomb:

The Atomic bomb On August 2nd 1939, just before the beginning of World War II Einstein wrote to then President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Einstein and several other scientists told Roosevelt of efforts in Nazi Germany to purify U-235 with which might be used to build an atomic bomb. It was shortly thereafter that the United States Government began the serious undertaking known only then as the Manhattan Project. Simply put, the Manhattan Project was committed to expedient research and production that would produce a viable atomic bomb.

E = MC2 :

E = MC2 Albert Einstein developed a theory about the relationship of mass and energy. The formula, E=mc 2 is probably the most famous outcome from Einstein's special theory . The formula says energy equals mass times the speed of light squared. Since the speed of light squared is an enormous number a small amount of mass can be converted to a large amount of energy. If there's a lot of energy available some energy can be converted to mass and a new particle can be created. Nuclear reactors, work because nuclear reactions convert small amounts of mass into large amounts of energy.

A Strange Man:

A Strange Man He wasn’t the most appealing person but his mind was out of this world. Einstein could do many cannot and still to this day he remains one of the greatest historical figures ever.
