Albert Einstein

In 1999, TIME Magazine recognized Einstein with “Person of the Century” for his intellect and strong passion for social justice.

Did you know?

  • Einstein was slow to talk. He didn’t begin talking until at least age 3.
  • Einstein’s fascination with science started when he was 5 years old and his father handed him a pocket compass. The idea that force exerted itself on the little needle to point in a single direction haunted Einstein for years.
  • Einstein loved to sail off the coast of Long Island. He never learned to swim even though he frequently capsized his boat.

“The most beautiful experience we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science”
