Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, in the Kingdom Wurrtemberg in the German Empire on 14 March Albert in 14 years.
1905 went down in history of physics as «Year of Wonders». In this year "Annals of Physics", a leading German physics journal, published three outstanding articles Einstein laid the foundation for a new scientific revolution: 1. « On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies ». With this article starts the theory of relativity. 2. « On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light ». Its one of the works that have laid the foundations of quantum theory. 3. « On the Motion of Small Particles Suspended in a Stationary Liquid, as Required by the Molecular Kinetic Theory of Heat » work dedicated to Brownian motion and significantly advancing statistical physics. "Year of Wonders"
World recognition Before Einstein in physics there was no such thing as warped space and time. All the planets, Einstein believed to cause the curvature of space. Therefore, light beams, skirting this curvature, should be rejected. Lacked only practical confirmation. The difficulty was that the necessary observations were possible only with the full solar eclipse. Suitable occasion presented itself in Photos taken by astronomer Arthur Eddington, became the proof of Einstein's theory. So the scientist gained worldwide recognition.
Albert Aphorisms In the late 1940s, Einstein wrote in his article about a One World Government, "I dont know what weapons will be carried out World War III, but in the fourth we will fight with sticks and stones." In response to complaints from a schoolgirl about her problems with mathematics scholar replied: "Do not worry. Believe me, my difficulties, even more than your ". Einstein's famous aphorism coined by them in response to a question by one journalist about the difference between time and eternity: "If I had the time to explain the difference between these concepts, it would pass forever before you would understand it."
"If the theory of relativity is confirmed, the Germans will say that Im German, and French - that Im a citizen of the world; but if my theory is refuted, the French declared me a German, and the Germans - a Jew. "
The famous photo was taken on the 72 th anniversary of the scientist. He was tired and sit at the request of the photographer Arthur Sasse smile his tongue.
Einstein board on which he made his last record April 16, 1955.
*** April 16, 1955 Secretary of Einstein heard the noise of a falling body. The scientist was in the bathroom with a grimace of pain on his face.On the question, "Is everything all right?" He replied in his usual manner: "All - in order. I havent. The greatest scientist of mankind died in the night on April 18. He didnt want people to worship his bones, so leave an indication of cremation. Einstein's ashes were scattered over the river Delaware, and his mind, considered the boundary between the past, present and future "stubborn illusion", disappeared in the river of time.
The only thing that taught me my long life: that all our science in the face of reality, is primitive and childish - and yet it is the most precious thing we have.
