Mathematician Albert Einstein

                Timeline Of Albert Einstein's life

1879: On March 14th, Albert Einstein was born in to Jewish parents Hermann Einstein and Pauline Einstein in Ulm, Württemberg, Germany .

1880: The Einstein family moved to Munich, where his father and his uncle founded a company that manufactured electrical equipment.

1884: In this year Albert Einstein is first introduced to a compass which triggers his quest to investigate the natural world. Einstein later stated that this experience made a deep and lasting impression on his mind as a child.

1889: At age 10, Albert Einstein started studying subjects like math science and philosophy. A family friend called Max Talmud, a medical student, introduced the ten-year-old Einstein to some of the most defining works in the field of science, mathematics, and philosophy texts which included Kant's Critique of Pure Reason and Euclid's Elements. Einstein understood the deductive reasoning From Euclid and by the age of twelve, he had learned Euclidean geometry. After this he also began to explore calculus.

1894: Albert Einstein was fifteen when his father's business failed, and the Einstein family had to move to Italy. During this time, Einstein wrote his first scientific work The Investigation of the State of Ether in Magnetic Fields. Albert Einstein had been left behind in Munich to finish his high school term, but in the spring of 1895, he withdrew to join his family in Pavia.

1895: Albert Einstein attempted to skip high school and directly apply to the ETH Zurich. The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology by taking an entrance exam to the Swiss Polytechnic. Although he got exceptional marks in maths and physics he failed the arts portion. His family then sent him to the Swiss town of Aarau to finish high school.

1896: Albert Einstein graduated from high school at the age of 17 and enrolls at the Federal Polytechnic in Zurich (ETH).

1898: Albert falls in love with Mileva Maric, a Hungarian classmate at the federal polytechnic in Zurich.

1899: Albert Einstein applied for Swiss Citizenship

1900: Albert Einstein graduated from the Federal Polytechnic in Zurich (ETH).

1901: Albert became a Swiss citizen. In the fall, Albert Einstein is employed with the Schaffhausen, Switzerland as a tutor. Mileva who was pregnant at this time moved to Stein Am Rhein.

1902: In January, Mileva gave birth to their daughter, Lieserl. It is believed that this daughter was put up for adoption. Albert Einstein took a job at the Swiss
Patent Office. This was the year when Albert Einstein’s father Hermann Einstein died.

1903: Albert Einstein and Mileva got married in January.

1904: This is the year in which Mileva gave birth to their first son, Hans Albert.

1905: This year is known as Annus Mirabilis or Albert Einstein’s Miracle Year which saw the birth of Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity. On June 30th, Einstein, submitted his paper about The Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies to the leading German physics journal. At the age of 26 Einstein applied his theory to mass and energy and formulated the equation e=mc2

1907: Einstein begins
applying the laws of gravity to his Special Theory of Relativity.

1910: Albert Einstein’s second son Eduard is born.

1911: The Einsteins moved to Prague where Albert Einstein was given a full professorship at the German University. Albert Einstein was the youngest to attend the invitation-only Solvay Conference in Brussels which was the first world physics conference.

1912: The Einsteins moved to Zurich where Albert was given a position as a professor of Theoretical Physics at the ETH.

1914: Einstein became the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin and professor of theoretical physics at the University of Berlin. The Einstein family moved to Berlin in April, but Mileva and the sons return to Zurich after 3 months owing to some major differences, which led to the divorce proceedings.

1915: This was the year in which Albert Einstein completed his General Theory of Relativity.

1917: Einstein was seriously ill when his cousin, Elsa, nursed him back to health after which he went on to publish his first paper on cosmology.

1919: Albert Einstein married Elsa who was his first cousin. On May 29 in the same year, a solar eclipse proved the fact that Einstein's General Theory of Relativity works.

1922:This was the year when Albert Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics.

1927: Albert Einstein attended the fifth Solvay Conference. This was also the year when he began to develop the foundation of quantum mechanics with Bohr.

1928: Einstein began pursing his idea of a unified field theory.

1932: Einstein was a popular man at the age of 53, when he began to feel the heat of Nazi Germany, owing to his Jewish origins.

1933: Albert Einstein and Elsa, moved to the United States, where they settled in Princeton, New Jersey. Albert Einstein assumed a post at the Institute for Advanced Study.

1936: Albert Einstein’s second wife Elsa dies after a brief illness.

1939: This was the year that marked the beginning of the second world war. Albert Einstein wrote a famous letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt warning him about the possibility of Germany's building an atomic bomb and urging nuclear research.

1940: Albert Einstein becomes an American citizen, however he retains his Swiss citizenship.

1955: On April 17 Albert Einstein experienced internal bleeding caused by the rupture of an aortic aneurysm. He died in Princeton Hospital early the next morning at the age of 76
