About Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879. As a child, Einstein revealed an extraordinary curiosity for understanding the mysteries of science (started only at age 10/11). In 1905, while working as a patent clerk in Bern, Switzerland, the young physicist Einstein obtained his Doctorate degree and published four of his most influential research papers, including the Special Theory of Relativity. In that, the now world famous equation "e = mc2" unlocked mysteries of the Universe theretofore unknown. Ten years later, in 1915, Einstein completed his General Theory of Relativity and in 1922 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. It also launched him to international superstardom and his name became a household word synonymous with genius all over the world. Einstein was a founder of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and bequeathed his intellectual property to the institution upon his death in 1955.  Recognized as TIME magazine's "Person of the Century" in 1999, Einstein's intellect, coupled with his strong passion for social justice and dedication to pacifism, left the world with infinite knowledge and pioneering moral leadership.
