Meet the probably most significant scientist of our time as a wax figure at Madame Tussauds Berlin and pass his quiz.
- Albert Einstein was born in Ulm in 1879. At the age of 12 he already dominated the Euclidean Geometry. He grew up as the son of a Jewish family in Munich, where Albert Einstein first graduated board school before attending the Luitpold Gymnasium there. He is said to have been a mediocre pupil, but he was very interested in science and mathematics even as a young boy. At the age of fifteen he left school without qualification and moved to Milan, where his family had settled up meanwhile. After graduating from high school in Switzerland a few years later, Albert Einstein began his studies in Zurich, where he embraced various teaching activities after graduation. Afterwards he worked at the patent office in Bern and studied in the field of theoretical physics in his free time. In 1905, Albert Einstein published some of his important papers including the groundbreaking “Special Theory of Relativity” and the most famous formula in the world “E = m x c²”, which explains that matter can be transformed into energy. In 1914, Einstein moved back to Germany. In the next 18 years, he was mainly engaged in research at the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. He was a physicist, philosopher and writer, who widely regarded as one of the most influential and well-known scientists and intellectuals of the 20th century. In 1999 the well-known Time Magazine voted Albert Einstein as “Man of the Year”.
- He constructed the "General Theory of Relativity" and dealt with various aspects of theoretical physics and quantum theory. After his general theory of relativity was confirmed in an experiment, Einstein gained fame all over the world. Overnight, the physicist received invitations and honors from all over the world, almost every journal reported about him. In 1921, Einstein received the Nobel Prize for Physics "for his contributions to theoretical physics, especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". After the takeover by the Nazis Albert Einstein did not return from a trip to the United States. Together with his family he lived in Princeton and worked at the "Institute for Advanced Study". There he lived until his death at the age of 76 in 1955. But at Madame Tussauds Berlin he is still alive as a wax figure.
- Albert Einstein is deemed to be not only a quintessential researcher and genius, but he is known for his commitment to international understanding and peace as well. He understood himself as a pacifist, socialist, and zionist, and used his extraordinary notoriety outside the scientific world to get attention to political and social grievances.
