Einstein in Deep Thought

Albert Einstein was born March 14, 1879, in Ulm, Wittemberg, Germany. He was born of Jewish parents. His dad's name was Herman Einstein. Albert attended a Catholic school and was given violin lessons. He had much fun building mechanical devices. Einstein's first scientific work written was called "The Investigation ofof the State of Ether in Magnetic Fields." He received his diploma in September 1896.

Einstein married Mileva Maric in January. Maric was a mathematician. The marrige was both a personal and intellectual partenership. Their child was Lieserl Einstein. We don't know what actually happened to her. Some people think she died at infancy. Their first son was born May 14, 1904. Einstein's second son, Eduard, was born July 28, 1910. They only had two sons named Hans Albert Einstein and Eduard Einstein. Einstein divorced Maric on Febuary 14, 1919. He then married his cousin Elsa Lowenthal on June 2, 1919.

Einstein invented the refrigerator in 1926. The man who helped him make and patent his device was Leo Szilard. Einstein patented his invention November 11, 1930. The U.S. patent number was 1,781,541. The patent covered the parts that provide the cooling system that had no moving parts. The refrigerator ran on ammonia, butane, and water.

In his final years in 1955, Israeli government proposed to Einstein that he take the post of second president. He said no. He died at 1:15 AM in New Jersey at the age of 76 from internal bleeding, which was caused by the rupture of an aortic aneurism. An autopsy was performed on Einstein by Dr. Thomas Soltz Harvey who removed and preserved his brain. Harvey found nothing unusual with the brain, but in 1999 further analysis by a team at McMaster Univesity reaveled that his parietial region was missing and, to compensate, his inferior lobe was 15% wider than normal. The parietal region is responsible for mathematical thought and imaginary movement. Einstein's brain contained 73% more glial cells than the average brain.

Remember, I said Einstein was my hero! He won the Nobel Prize for proving energy quanta is real (this means photons.) He is also one of the smartest people in the world. I someday will try to be like him - one day. Maybe I'll be called the new Einstein!

Author Info

I am an 11 year old boy who attends Goshen Elementary School in Alabama. My hero is Albert Einstein. He was born in 1879 and died in 1955. He is my hero, because he is one of the most intelligent people that ever lived and he received the Nobel Prize for proposing that energy quanta is real (that means photons).
