Einstein’s Contributions to the History of Science

Albert Einstein is the most famous physicist in history. He is one of the most intelligent people in the world, one of the greatest scientists in science. His discoveries in physics changed the course of the history of physics.


He was born in 1879 in Ulm, Germany. He was a slow-growing, stagnant, shy, uninterested child. He graduated from high school and university in Zurich, becoming a teacher of physics and mathematics. He became a Swiss citizen in the 1990s. Following the adoption of his doctoral dissertation on molecular dimensionality at the University of Zurich, his dissertations on quantum and Brownian motion, two on special relativity, were also accepted. These theses were about Quantum physics, light particles and photons. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his work The Photoelectric Effect. He worked on quantum physics.

In 1914 he returned to Berlin and continued his studies. He wrote his essay on quantum mechanics of radiation. He completed the General Theory of Relativity in 1905. This theory says that the mass geometrically bends time and space causes it to bend rays from distant stars. Reality theory also proves that mass and energy are equal. He discovered that a small matter is equal to a giant energy. He died in 1955 in Princeton.

The post-mortem autopsy showed that the “parietal” lobe in his brain was 15% larger than in normal people. This was the area where mathematics and visual skills developed. Einstein’s brain was 75% more curved than normal people.


  • He found theories about mass extraction.
    He was interested in the structure of the atom and found the value of the Avagadro number.
  • He explained the photoelectric incident, found the laws of it.
    He defined the speed of light in two different ways: special relativity and general relativity.
  • He found the theory of relativity arranged for space and time.
  • He developed the theory of the expanding universe.
  • He made the atom disintegrate, so the atomic bomb was made.
