Albert Einstein is born to Hermann Einstein and his wife
Pauline in Ulm, Germany. He soon receives his first compass
and begins to investigate the natural world. At age ten
he sets into a program of self-education and learns as much
about science as he can.
The Einstein’s move to Pavia, Italy and Albert stays
behind attempting to finish the school year, but only lasts
a term. He then follows his family to Pavia. There he tries
to skip high school by taking an entrance exam to the Swiss
Polytechnic, a top technical university, but he fails. He
goes to the Swiss town of Aarau to finish high school. After
graduating at 17, he enrolls in the ETH (the Federal Polytechnic)
in Zurich. He falls in love with Mileva Maric, a classmate.
Einstein graduates from ETH.
Einstein becomes a Swiss citizen. Mileva becomes pregnant
with his baby, and moves back to Hungary to give birth at
her parent’s home. Albert moves to Bern. In January,
Mileva gives birth to their daughter, Lieserl, whom they
eventually put up for adoption, reportedly gets sick, and
then all records of her disappear. Einstein’s father
becomes ill and dies. The next January, Einstein and Mileva
marry. The next year Mileva gives birth to their first son,
Hans Albert. 1905 is Albert’s “Annus Mirabilis,”
or “Miracle Year.” his Special Theory of Relativity
is born. On June 30th, Einstein, submits his paper, "On
the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" to the leading
German physics journal. At age 26, he applies his theory
to mass and energy and formulates the equation E=mc2. He
begins applying the laws of gravity to his Special Theory
of Relativity. A son, Eduard is born to him and Mileva.
Albert and his family move to Prague, where he is given
a full professorship at the German University there. He
is the youngest to attend the invitation-only Solvay Conference
at Brussels, the first world physics conference. The family
then moves to Zurich where Einstein is given a job as professor
of Theoretical Physics at the ETH. He begins work on his
new Theory of Gravity. Einstein is given a job as the director
of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin and professor
of theoretical physics at the University of Berlin. The
family moves to Berlin, but after 3 months, Mileva and sons
return to Zurich and divorce proceedings begin. Einstein
completes his General Theory of Relativity. He falls seriously
ill, and is nursed back to health by his cousin, Elsa. He
publishes his first paper on cosmology. In 1919, Albert
marries Elsa, and on May 29th, a solar eclipse proves his
General Theory of Relativity is feasible.
Einstein is awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921.
He attends the fifth Solvay Conference and begins working
on the idea for quantum mechanics with Neils Bohr. He also
begins developing his idea for a unified field theory.
Walt's vision of an amusement park begins. He visits fairs,
