0A0A ny list of the greatest thinkers in history will contain the name of the brilliant physicist Albert Einstein.
0 His theories of relativity led to entirely new ways of thinking about time, space, matter, energy, and gravity. 0 Einstein`s work led to such scientific advances as the control of atomic energy and to some of the investigations of space.
0 Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany, on March 14, 1879, of Jewish parents. 0 He was shy and curious child. Ulm, Germany
0 He attended a Munich elementary school where he showed an interest in science and mathematics but did poorly in other areas of study. 0 He finished high school and Technical College in Switzerland.

0 In his works Einstein showed that time and motion are relative to the observer, if the speed of light is constant and natural laws are the same everywhere in the universe.
0 Television and other inventions are practical applications of Einstein`s discoveries.
0 His fourth paper was a mathematical addition to the special theory of relativity. 0 In 1916 Einstein published his general theory of relativity. Fjhf,kjkgj fjyf
