Albert Einstein was an important person who changed the world of science.
People referred to him as a genius, and as one of the smartest people in the
world. Einstein devoted himself to solving the mysteries of the world, and he
changed the way science is looked at today.
Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879, in Ulm, Germany. Albert's
speech was late in development; he didn't start talking until he was about three.
Since he started talking late, his parents thought he was retarded. "His
explanation was that he consciously skipped baby babbling, waiting until he
could speak in complete sentences"(Brian 1). Einstein had a very bad temper when
he was young; he got mad and hit his sister Maja in the head with a garden hoe
and cracked her skull. When he was in school, his teachers thought he was
mentally retarded because he ignored whatever bored him and attacked anything he
had interest in.
Einstein was twenty-one years old when he got married. His marriage
almost didn't take place because Mileva, his fiance, thought he had an affair.
Einstein decided to go to America to tell other scientists about his
theory of relativity. He brought his wife and several freinds with him. When
they got there, they were stormed with reporters and camera-men who wanted to
know about his theories. He went around to different areas and gave speeches
and lectures. When he appeared at Union Station to lecture, there was almost a
riot because so many people wanted to see him.
Einstein's most famous theory was the theory of relativity. "Einstein
