The man with questions

“A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?

Albert Einstein

The man who had never stopped being crazy to ask questions and drive his curiosity to knowledge.

Einstein had an instinct for science and mathematics from childhood but he did not excel at everything he put his mind to.  He obtained his early education in Munich, Germany, where he was an average and experienced some speech challenges. While he disliked the school’s rigid approach towards education but fascinated by the laws of nature he found his passion in science and mathematics. It was again in his leisure time, when he was working at the Swiss Patent Office as a young man, he developed many of his most influential theories.

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

Albert Einstein

And… he lived his life with imaginations and deriving some theories of the miraculous nature. He was only 26 when in 1905, he had four separate papers published, exciting the field of physics and escalating him to global renown. Among them were his theory of relativity, thermodynamics (the study of heat processes), statistical mechanics, his famous equation, E = MC² (affirming that matter could be turned into energy).

Einstein won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1921 for the famous equation of photoelectric effect. He is the most influential physicist of the 20th century, a motivator of all generations and one of the most famous scientist to have ever lived.
