“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.”
- Albert Einstein
Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)
Used "Creativity, compassion, resilience and drive" to his advantage
Led to genius!
Einstein received his award in 1922 due to the fact that the 1921 candidates did not meet the established criteria given by Alfred Nobel in his will. Due to this event a statute was applied which allowed the Nobel Prize to be reserved until the following year.
Of the contributions which Einstein gave to physics were his Theory of Relativity, his 1905 kinetic theory,and his work on the photoelectric effect along with specific heat.
His work cleared up Planck's quantum theory
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
― Albert Einstein
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
Special Theory of Relativity
Speed of Light is Constant
Proved Newton's Law of Gravity was inadequate
E=MC^2 means Energy equals the mass times the square of the velocity of light in centimeters per second squared
Energy and mass are interchangeable - You can't have one without the other
Lack of frame of reference means inconclusive data
A geometric property of space and time, or spacetime
General Theory of Relativity
