Interesting Albert Einstein Facts:
Albert Einstein was born in Germany where he began his education. Popular belief holds that Einstein had trouble speaking and in mathematics, but those rumors appear to be false as he excelled in school.
While Einstein worked in a small number of positions, including assistant in the Swiss patent office after he became a citizen, but his renown as a scientist continued to grow while he published and lectured.
One of his pivotal topics that launched him into scientific celebrity status was for the theory of general relativity, the Earth's sun would bend light traveling from other solar systems due to its gravitational pull.
Einstein became widely known for his work and research in Europe, and during his first trip to the United States he became known as a celebrated scientist.
It was during his second trip to the United States that Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany, prompting Einstein to abandon his plans to return to Europe due to his Jewish heritage.
Even in 1930 Einstein was a known celebrity and had to guard his travel itinerary wherever he went. His work had made him famous among the populace.
When Hitler began his campaign across Europe, Einstein wrote to then-President Roosevelt to explain the dangers of the German bomb project.
His warning led to the creation of the Manhattan Project and the US's own atomic bomb research and implementation, which came to fruition in time to retaliate against Japan for the bombing at Pearl Harbor.
Einstein may best be known for his theory of relativity, expressed formulaically as E = mc2.
His wife Elsa described the process by which this theory came to him, which caused him to stay locked in his upstairs room for two weeks while he worked on it.
In addition to his many contributions to theoretical physics, Einstein was a champion for civil rights.
He personally made it possible for thousands of Jewish scientists to escape the Nazi regime, and later went on to become a member of the NAACP as he championed the fight against racism in the US.
Einstein holds numerous awards and honors, including the Nobel Prize, and has published hundreds of books and articles on various topics in theoretical physics.
Upon Einstein's death, his brain was removed and preserved without his family's knowledge, which the doctor justified by stating that he hoped modern science could uncover what had made Einstein so intelligent.
