Albert Einstein and the Theory of Relativity

When Albert Einstein was alive he was as well known as a movie star, and as respected as any star athlete. He is probably the most famous scientist of the twentieth century, perhaps the most famous scientist who ever lived. Today, even adults with limited scientific backgrounds usually know his name and, even more unusual for a scientist, know what he looked like. He was as famous for his wild gray hair and deep, thoughtful eyes as he was for his simple equation E = mc2. Before his fame he would know poverty, prejudice, and divorce. When he first wrote the theories that changed the way the universe was viewed, he was not a professor at a prestigious university or a respected scientist. He was a lowly patent clerk unable to land a better job. This is his story.
