The Young Age
The Atomic Age
Last Years But that's not all, of course... Fact Track:
As he was a late talker, his parents were worried.
At last, at the dinner table one night, he broke his silence and said, "The soup is too hot."
His parents were relieved, as he had never said a word before. So they asked him why he had never said a word before.
He replied, "Because everything has been up to order until now. Fact Track: Einstein had a sister named Maria 'Maja' Einstein, who was born on November 18, 1881.
His mother was Pauline Einstein, and his father was Hermann Einstein.
They were both typical German Jews. Fact Track: Did you know that when Alberts' sister (Maria) was born, Albert said, "But where are her wheels?" He thought she was a toy at first. Einsteins' Family The Atomic Age Fact Track:
When Maria (nicknamed Maja
by Albert) was born, Albert said, "Yes, but where are her wheels?" But Maria and Einstein actually did get along quite well all their lives. The reason I said 'but' is because Einstein rarely got along with anyone, as you'll soon discover... Pictures of Maria and Einstein,
younger and older. Fact Track:
Did you know that when Einstein
was either four or five, he was inspired by a compass.
He was amazed by the invsible forces that pushed the needle around where there seemed to be 'empty' space. Education When Einstein was ten, he started showing a definite interest in physics and math. He was doing university math like calculus when he was eleven. Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, then it will spend its whole life believing that it is stupid.
Albert Einstein By the time, Albert was
eleven, he was already doing university math! Fact Track:
When Albert tried to enter a famous university named the Swiss Polytechnic, he wasn't let in! The reason for this is because Albert did so well in math and physics, but he failed so badly in all the other subjects that they wouldn't let him in! He studied the other subjects for a year at another school, then re-entered and they let him in. Fact Track:
Albert's second job was a patent clerk! There's a story about how Dr. Albert Einstein was traveling to universities in his car , delivering lectures on his theory of relativity. During one journey, the driver remarked " Dr. Einstein, I have heard you deliver that lecture about 30 times. I know it by heart and bet I could give it myself."
"Well, I'll give you the chance", said the Doctor. "They don't know me at the next university, so when we get there, I'll put on your cap, and you introduce yourself as Dr. Einstein and give the lecture."
The driver delivered Einstein's lecture without any mistakes. When he finished, he started to leave, but one of the professors stopped him and asked a complex question filled with mathematical equations and formulas. The driver thought fast. "The answer to that problem is so simple," he said, " I'm surprised you have to ask me. In fact, to show you just how simple it is, I'm going to ask my driver to come up here and answer your question". Getting A Job His scientist career started when he was granted a teaching diploma in math and physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, or the ETH. Einsteins' most famous 'Annus Mirabilis' papers were published in 1905. 'Annus Mirabilis', in Latin, translates
into 'Year of Wonders'.
These papers are:
Mass and energy equivalence (E=MC2)
Light quanta In the year 1905, Albert Einstein produces
five of the most important papers of physics. E=MC2 means:
Energy equals Mass
times Celeritas squared. The photoelectric effect
is about how a photon can produce an electron. Celeritas is the Latin word for the speed of light. In 1921, he won the Nobel Prize for chemistry for his paper on the photoelectric effect. In 1939, in the middle of World War II, Albert Einstein and some others sent a letter to President Roosevelt suggesting the U.S. to build a nuclear bomb. He warned that the Germans were trying to purify Uranium-235, which can be a vital element in the nuclear bomb. Little did he know that this would be one of his most regretted moments throughout his whole life. This led to what was known as the Manhattan Project, a massive effort to purify Uranium-235 and make a nuclear bomb. In 1945, World War II finally ends with the horrifying bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Last Years E=MC2 E=MC2 "Look deep, deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." — Albert Einstein, 1951 "Why is it that nobody understands me, and everybody likes me?"
- Albert Einstein Albert Einstein died at the age of
76, in Princeton University, New Jersey, on Monday, April 18, 1955 at 1:15 in the morning, working. Albert Einstein died because his aortic aneurysm, a blood-filled balloon in your abdomen, had burst. He internally bled to death. Nobody knows his last words, because his last words were in German, and his nurse did not understand German. Career You weren't expecting this, were you? QUIZ TIME!!! When Albert Einstein died, he left a piece of unfinished work on his desk. His last words were:
In essence, the conflict that exists today is no more than an old-style struggle for power, once again presented to mankind in semi religious trappings. The difference is that, this time, the development of atomic power has imbued the struggle with a ghostly character; for both parties know and admit that, should the quarrel deteriorate into actual war, mankind is doomed.
Despite this knowledge, statesmen in responsible positions on both sides continue to employ the well-known technique of seeking to intimidate and demoralize the opponent by marshaling superior military strength. They do so even though such a policy entails the risk of war and doom.
Not one statesman in a position of responsibility has dared to pursue the only course that holds out any promise of peace, the course of supranational security, since for a statesman to follow such a course would be tantamount to political suicide. Political passions, once they have been fanned into flame, exact their victims ... Citater fra... Question 1 When was Albert Einstein born? Answer March 14th, 1879. Question 2 Come get your prize.

Yayzzz! (handing out stickerz) Well, that's it for my presentation. I hope you enjoyed my presentation! And I hope you didn't read or talk during it either! THE END (applause) VIDEO TIME! When Albert was 17, he renounced his German citizenship in order to avoid mandatory military service. When Albert was 17, he renounced his German citizenship in order to avoid mandatory military service. In 1901, he gained Swiss citizenship. In 1919, at the end of World War I, Albert regains German citizenship. In 1933, Einstein flees from Nazi Germany, fearing Anti-semitism. He settles in the US, where he gains a citizenship in 1940. E=MC2 is basically saying e = m x 89,875,517,873,681,764 joules. Energy and mass are two separate things. They can be converted into each other with this equation. The above equation is exact. Energy can be converted into mass with paricle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider below. Particle accelerators basically work by smashing paticles together at high speeds in order to create matter. Scientists then study the new matter. An example of turning mass into energy is... Meet the nuclear bomb. Albert Einsteins' equation, E=MC2, made it possible to create and explain the atomic bomb. After the bombing of Hiroshima, there was even a firestorm!
