Do I really need to tell you who this great man was? I guess, No? Most of our school days went on learning his complex theories that we could never understand. But today other than his theories, we’ll talk about everything related to his life including his career, theories, personal life and estimated net worth.
Hugely known for his theory of relativity and the equation E=MC2, Albert Einstein was a German-born physicist. He was born on March 14, 1879, in Ulm, Germany. Einstein spent his childhood in Munich where his family had moved after his birth. His father, Herrmann Einstein was an engineer and also a salesman and her mother Pauline Koch was a homemaker. Albert belonged to a Jewish family and during that time, it was hard for the Jews to survive in Germany, so his family had to move frequently from one place to other. As a teenager, Albert was moved to Switzerland with his family where he completed his education. First, he attended Swiss Federal Polytechnic and then went on completing his Ph.D. from University of Zurich. Before moving to Switzerland, he had completed his early education from the local schools of Munich.
Like his theories, his personal life was also too complex. He was involved in many romantic relationships. His love life began when he was in school. He married his first love Milena Maric in 1903. He had 2 sons with Maric after their marriage. However, the couple is said to have had a daughter before their marriage too. Their intense relationship met an end in 1919 when Maric discovered his relationship with other women. The same year, he married his cousin Elsa Loewenthal and remained with her until her death in 1932.
Albert Einstein had a deep interest in science and mathematics since his childhood. At the age of 12, he had discovered his own original proof of Pythagoras Theorem. He also learned the other theories and always remained ahead of his classmates. During his entire lifetime, Albert travelled a lot. He moved from place to place and he even had to change his citizenship for 2-3 times.
Eventually, he migrated to US in 1940 and became a US citizen. Though his life was very happening, his discoveries didn’t get affected. Over his entire lifetime, he discovered the theory of relativity, E=MC2, Photons and energy quanta, quantized atomic vibrations, theory of critical opalescence, zero-point energy and many more theories. Albert worked for many scientific organizations and universities over the course of time and discovered many theories in mathematics and physics. Out of his all discoveries, he is predominantly known for E=MC2.
Awards & achievements
Albert Einstein was one of the most influential scientists the world has ever got. So, how could he be devoid of the awards? He received unnumbered of awards including Nobel Prize for his immense contribution to the science. In 1921, he won Nobel Prize for physics for his incredible explanation of the photoelectric effect. Other than Nobel Prize, he also won Barnard Medal, Copley Medal, and was also honored as the ‘Person of Century’ by ‘Times’ newspaper.
Net Worth of Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein had lived centuries ago. At that time, he was extremely successful in his career and has also amassed huge money. He was even asked to become the president of Israel but he declined. With the fact, you can assume the level of his high-class persona that he had built through his exceptional works. Today, his net worth might sound low but at that time, he was certainly a big money churner. The unrivaled scientist is believed to have a net worth of $1 million. This is only the worth of his works. His personal asset is not included in it.
There was no one and there would never be anyone like Albert Einstein. His legacy will always remain immoral. Not only to the science but he was the gift also to the mankind.
