In 1905, scientific theory that revolutionized Physics called ‘Special Theory of Relativity’ was presented by a young scientist Albert Einstein. Growing up in Germany, Einstein showed true signs of one day being a brilliant physicist. He was born on March 14, 1879. He didn’t speak until he was 3 years old and his performance in school was just mediocre. Till grade 6 he didn’t know how to make a triangle. A s a teenager, he started teaching himself advance Mathematics and Physics because he considered the formal education useless. After graduating from a renowned institute in 1901 he found a job as Clerk. He found this job very boring and he used his spare time to conduct his own research. He completed his doctorate in Physics from the University of Zurich in 1905. His first work concerning relativity earned him fame in the scientific community and he began teaching in the universities across Europe. In 1914 he accepted a position at the University of Berlin where he produced his next major concept ‘The general theory of relativity’. Einstein was single handedly changing widely accepted ideas about nature of physics and he did most of this before his 30th birthday. He explained the existence of space time saying that nothing can move faster than light and that a tiny amount of matter could produce enormous amount of energy. He is regarded as the ‘Father of Modern Physics’. He won Noble prize in Physics in 1921 on his explanation of the Photoelectric Effect.
