Do You Share Your Birthday with Albert Einstein?
Friends, if you are born on March 14, then you are lucky enough to share your birthday with the great physicist Albert Einstein. He was born on the date in 1879.
On March 14, 1879, Albert Einstein is born, the son of a Jewish electrical engineer in Ulm, Germany. Einstein’s theories of special and general relativity drastically altered man’s view of the universe and his work in particle and energy theory helped make possible quantum mechanics and, ultimately, the atomic bomb.
He explained his theory of Relativity in following words-‘Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute and it seems like an hour, Sit with a pretty girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity’.
At the age of 17, he enrolled in the four-year mathematics and physics teaching at a University in Switzerland. Later, he came up with his Theory of Relativity and other works. Einstein published more than 300 scientific papers along with over 150 non-scientific works.
He received Nobel Prize in the year 1921 for his contribution in the field of theoretical Physics especially for his discovery of Photoelectric effect which played a major role in establishing Quantum theory.
