Willy Goebel, Per. 1 Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Wurttemberg, Germany. When Einstein was 10, a poor student named Max Talmud began dining with the Einstein family once a week. He labored under unimaginative instruction until discovering the joys of Mozart’s sonatas at age 13. Max gave him a geometry textbook two years before Albert was to study the subject at school. He graduated in 1901, and unable to find a teaching position, accepted a job as technical assistant in the Swiss Patent Office in Bern. Later in 1905 Einstein showed how mass and energy were equivalent expressing it in the famous equation: E=mc2. This equation became a cornerstone in the development of nuclear energy. Einstein's many contributions to physics include: The special theory of relativity, which reconciled mechanics with electromagnetism The general theory of relativity, a new theory of gravitation obeying the equivalence principle. Founding of relativistic cosmology with a cosmological constant
