Einstein saw a wonder when
he was four or five years
old: a magnetic compass.
The needle's northward
swing, guided by an
invisible force, impressed
him.
The compass convinced him
that there had to be
"something behind things,
something deeply hidden."

Albert - as a Student
Einstein knew, from then
on, that he wanted to
teach math and Science at
a University someday.
The problem was, he
wasnt a very good testtaker and could not get a
job at a University
because of it.
Rumor has it that he had
even failed a Math test,
but some people question
that because of the way
grades were assigned
back then.

Albert Einstein
develops his Special
Theory of Relativity.
He did this while
working as a Patent
Clerk in Germany.
He wasnt really even
a scientist at the time.

Einsteins Special Theory of Relativity


Relative to who is
watching, space and
time are transformed
near the speed of
light: distances
appear to stretch;
and clocks tick more
slowly

Einsteins Special Theory of Relativity


Einsteins theory meant
that Newtons Laws
needed to be modified.

Space and time are not


absolute - and the
universe we live in is not
actually the one Newton
"discovered.

Einstein in 1905
Einstein uses the idea
that light exists as tiny
packets, or particles, that
we now call photons.

His work anchors the


most shocking idea in
twentieth century
science: we live in a
universe built out of tiny
bits of energy and matter.

Next, in April and May, Einstein


publishes two papers.

In one he invents a new method of


counting and determining the size of the
atoms or molecules in a given space.

In the other he explains the phenomenon


of Brownian motion.

The net result is a proof that atoms


actually exist - still an issue at that time.

And then, in June,
Einstein completes
special relativity - which
adds a twist to the story:
special relativity sees
light as particles and a
continuous field of
waves.

And of course, Einstein isn't


finished. Later in 1905 comes
the most famous relationship
in physics: e=mc2.

The energy content of a body


is equal to the mass of the
body times the speed of light
squared.

At first, even Einstein does not


understand the full
implications of his formula.

Einstein IN 1907
In 1907, Einstein
begins to apply the
laws of gravity to his
Special Theory of
Relativity.
In 1911, he finally gets
a job as a Professor of
Physics at the
German University.

1910-1913
In 1910, Einstein addressed
a basic question: "Why is
the sky blue?" He
approached the problem by
looking at the effect of the
scattering of light by
individual molecules in the
atmosphere.
In 1913, Einstein begins
work on his new Theory of
Gravity.

and warning him of

Famous Einstein Quotes


"Anyone who has never made a
mistake has never tried anything
new."
"If A equals success, then the
formula is: A=X+Y+Z. X is work. Y
is play. Z is keep your mouth
shut."
