Einstein lived between March 14, 1879 and April 18, 1955

A significant event that affected Albert's life would be world war ll because he helped create the Atomic Bomb and had to move to america because he was a Jew and Hitler and the time were capturing Jews and killed millions of them.

            Einstein was slow in learning how to speak. His parents even consulted a doctor. He also had a cheeky rebelliousness toward authority, which led one headmaster to expel him and another to amuse history by saying that he would never amount to much. But these traits helped make him a genius.

          His cocky contempt for authority led him to question conventional wisdom. His slow verbal development made him curious about ordinary things (such as space and time) that most adults take for granted. His father gave him a compass at age five, and he puzzled over the nature of a magnetic field for the rest of his life. And he tended to think in pictures rather than words.

          Adolf Hitler, a man who murdered over 6 million Jews affected Einstein's life. He affected it by making Einstein, because he was a Jew as well had to move to america to do his work.

            Something unique about Albert is that he very seldom wore socks. he also was a slow learner as a child and also spoke very slowly. he also was offered presidency of Israel but politically declined.Einstein Failed his University Entrance Exam, and had to reapply a year later. Einstein failed his university entrance exam and had to reapply a year later. Einstein was known to have bad memory, he couldn't remember names,dates, and phone numbers. Einstein had an illegitimate daughter born in 1902. Albert Einstein never owned his own car and never learned how to drive.

          Albert Einstein's showed that absolute time had to be replaced by a new absolute: the speed of light. Einstein went against the grain and totally dismissed the "Old Physics." He envisioned a world where space and time are relative and the speed of light is absolute (at the time, it was believed that space and time were absolute and the speed of light was relative) and he asserted the equivalence of mass and energy, which would lead to the famous formula E=mc2.

           Albert's ambition was to obtain the diploma of a subject teacher for mathematics and physics

          "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new". Some words of advice from Albert Einstein saying everyone makes mistakes. At least that's what I get out of it.
