Albert Einstein, perhaps the greatest scientist known
to man, changed the way man looked at the universe forever.Einstein lived
a remarkable 76 years. I am very intrested in science and I think it's
amazing. I wanted to know about Einstein became famous and for what so
I decided to do some research. When I found out enough about him I wanted
to show it to everybody.

**
Early Life**
** **Young Einstein was very bright at a young
age but didn't do very good in school. He didn't like all the presures
that the school put on him. He had a clear understanding of the universe
around him. Around 1886 Einstein began his school career in Munich. As
well as his violin lessons, which he had from age six to age

thirteen, he also had religious education at home where he was taught
Judaism. Two years later he entered the Luitpold

Gymnasium and after this his religious education was given at school.
He studied mathematics, in particular the calculus,

beginning around 1891.

**The Big Event**

Einstein worked in a patent office from 1902 to
1909, holding a temporary post when he was first appointed, but by 1904

the position was made permanent and in 1906 he was promoted to technical
expert second class. While in the Bern patent

office he completed an astonishing range of theoretical physics publications,
written in his spare time without the benefit of close

contact with scientific literature or colleagues.By 1909 Einstein was
recognised as a leading scientific thinker. After holding chairs in Prague
and Zurich he advanced (1914)

to a prestigious post at the Kaiser-Wilhelm Gesellschaft in Berlin.
From this time he never taught a university courses. Einstein

remained on the staff at Berlin until 1933, from which time until his
death he held a research position at the Institute for

Advanced Study in Princeton.

In the first of three papers (1905) Einstein examined the phenomenon
discovered by Max Planck, according to which

electromagnetic energy seemed to be emitted from radiating objects
in discrete quantities. The energy of these quanta was

directly proportional to the frequency of the radiation. This seemed
at odds with the classical electromagnetic theory, based on

Maxwell's equations and the laws of thermodynamics which assumed that
electromagnetic energy consisted of waves which

could contain any small amount of energy. Einstein used Planck's quantum
hypothesis to describe the electromagnetic radiation

of light.

Einstein's second 1905 paper proposed what is today called the special
theory of relativity. He based his new theory on a

reinterpretation of the classical principle of relativity, namely that
the laws of physics had to have the same form in any frame of

reference. As a second fundamental hypothesis, Einstein assumed that
the speed of light remained constant in all frames of

reference, as required by Maxwell's theory.

Later in 1905 Einstein showed how mass and energy were equivalent.
Einstein was not the first to propose all the components

of special theory of relativity. His contribution is unifying important
parts of classical mechanics and Maxwell's electrodynamics.

The third of Einstein's papers of 1905 concerned statistical mechanics,
a field of that had been studied by Ludwig Boltzmann

and Josiah Gibbs.

**How the world was changed**

He changed how science was looked at. He changed
the way the universe was looked at.

**
In the end**

He died at the age of 76 years old.

I thought it was pretty cool how i got to learn how
to make a web page. I thought it was kindof frustrating though.
