Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was born on March 14th, 1879 in Württemberg, Germany. In 1886, he started school. Later that year he started violin lessons. He continued with them for 7 years. In high school, he studies science as much as he can. His family moves to Italy, but they leave him in Germany so he can finish school there. Albert attempts skipping high school by trying to get accepted into the Swiss Polytechnic, a top University, but he failed the art portions of the exam. In 1896, he graduates from high school at the age of 17 and attends the ETH (the Federal Polytechnic School) in Italy. In 1898 he falls in love with Mileva Maric which he marries in the year 1903. In 1900 he graduates from the ETH. In 1905, his theory of relativity is born. In 1907, he applies the laws of gravity to his theory.

In 1913, he works on his new theory of gravity. In 1915, he completes the general theory of gravity. In 1922, he is awarded the Noble Prize in Science. In 1928, he begins pursing his idea of a unified field theory. In 1949, his wife, Mileva dies. Then sadly, he, himself dies of heart failure on April 18th, 1955.
