Albert Einstein is one of the most illustrious scientists of the 20th
century. He made the famous and revolutionary discovery of the Theory
of Relativity. Einstein promulgated his theory of relativity in 1905 when
his scientific research papers were published. This discovery established
his reputation among the physicists of Europe. This theory of relativity
states that the speed on light appears to be the same whether an object
is moving rapidly to meet it or going away from it. His scientific discoveries
enabled him to give some new theories regarding space, time and gravitation.
In 1912, Einstein became a Professor at the Zurich Polytechnic (Switzerland).
In 1914, he was invited to become a Professor at Prussian Academy of science
in Berlin. When Hitler, who had a profound hatred for Jews, came to power
in Germany in 1933, Einstein left Germany and settled permanently in America.
During World War II he worked for US Navy
