On #ThisDayinHistory 1879, Albert Einstein is born in Ulm, Germany. His theories of special and general rela tivity drastically altered man’s view of the universe, and his work in particle and energy theory he lped make possible quantum mechanics and, ultimately, the atomic bomb. Einstein studied physics and mathemat ics at the Federal Polytechnic Academy in Zurich, Switzerland and in 1905 was awarded a Ph.D. from the Unive rsity of Zurich while working at the Swiss patent office in Bern #AceHistoryDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – Mar.14: That year, he published five theoretical papers that were to have a profound effect on the development of modern physics. In the first of these, titled “On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light,” Einstein theorized that light is comprised of individual quanta (photons) that demonstrate particle-like properties while collectively behaving like a wave. This work would later earn him the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/8169 Although the public was slow to embrace his revolutionary science, he was welcomed by Europe’s most eminent physicists and given multiple professorships. As a world-renowned public figure, he became increasingly political, taking up the cause of Zionism and speaking out against militarism and rearmament……….In his native Germany, this made him an unpopular figure, and after Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany in 1933, Einstein renounced his German citizenship and left the country. He later settled in the U.S., where he accepted a post at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. He would remain there for the rest of his life. In 1939, despite his lifelong pacifist beliefs, he agreed to write to President Franklin D. Roosevelt on behalf of a group of scientists who were concerned with American inaction in the field of atomic-weapons research. Like the other scientists, he feared sole German possession of such a weapon……………He played no role, however, in the Manhattan Project and later deplored the use of atomic bombs against Japan. He became an American citizen in 1940 and died in Princeton in 1955. #AlbertEinstein #Theory #PiDay #HBD #History #GreatMinds #😛 #OTD #AceHistoryNews
