About Albert Einstein

Last update: February, 2017

The famous historical figure Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, German Empire, in March 14, 1879 and died in Princeton, in the United States, in April 18, 1955. Einstein was a German physicist of Jewish origin who also had the nationality of Switzerland and the United States of America. He is considered to be the most important scientist of the twentieth century.

While he was an unknown young physicist, in 1905, the historical character Albert Einstein published the Theory of Special Relativity while he was working at a Patent Office in Bern. He incorporated on it some simple physical principles, concepts and events studied previously by Henri Poincaré and Hendrik Lorentz. As a logical consequence of this theory, Albert Einstein deduced the equation of the best known physics formula, the mass-energy equivalence formula: E=mc2. That same year he published several works that would lay groundwork for statistical physics and quantum mechanics.

Einstein completely reformulated the concept of gravity in his theory presented in 1915: the Theory of General Relativity. Cosmology, which is thescientific study of the origin and evolution of the universe by the branch of physics, arose from this theory. A few years later, in 1919, this famous historical figure was adored by the press when British observations of a solar eclipse confirmed his suspicions about the curvature of light. So Einstein became a world-famous scientist icon, an attainable privilege for very few scientists.

In 1921 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics with its explanation of the photoelectric effect and its many contributions to theoretical physics. His Theory of Relativity was not recognized because the scientific who had to evaluate it did not understand the formula and they were afraid that it could be proved wrong. The formula was considered controversial at that time.

By December 1932, Einstein left Germany due to the rise of Nazism, heading to the United States where he devoted himself to teaching at the Institute for Advanced Study. He became an American citizen in 1940. During his last years, the famous historical character worked on the integration into a single theory of the gravitational force and electromagnetic force.

Despite the fact that Einstein is considered the father of the atomic bomb for some people, he defended the world federalism, internationalism, pacifism, Zionism and democratic socialism with a strong inclination for individual freedom and freedom of expression. Time magazine proclaimed him the character of the twentieth century and the most prominent scientist.

Years after his death, his daughter Lieserl Einstein donated more than 1,400 letters his father wrote during his life. One of them was addressed to his daughter and said: \"There is an extremely powerful force for that science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and even is behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us. This universal force is love\".
