Early Life: The Big Bang
Born in Germany in 1879, Albert Einstein is still considered the most influential physicist of the 20th century.
His notable contributions to the world of physics include developing the special and general theories of relativity and explaining the photoelectric effect, the latter of which earned him a Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921.
Einstein’s early years were rocky at best. Earning the ire of teachers and unable to hold down a job, he struggled for much of his young life even as he worked hard to earn his education.
Skip forward to 1905 and what would become known as Einstein’s “Miracle Year”.
Over the course of twelve months, the physicist published four papers in the Annalen der Physik, each one altering the course of modern physics:
“On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light”, in which Einstein used the quantum theory to explain the photoelectric effect.
He explained that if light occurs in tiny packets, then it ought to precisely knock electrons out of metal.
“On the Movement of Small Particles Suspended in Stationary Liquids Required by the Molecular-Kinetic Theory of Heat”, in which Einstein put forth the very first experimental proof of an atom’s existence.
Through analysis of the motion of particles suspended in still water, he was able to calculate the size of the moving atoms and Avogadro’s number.
“On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies”, in which Einstein drafted the mathematical theory of special relativity.
“Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?”, in which Einstein showed relativity theory led to the equation E = mc^2.
This proved the very first mechanism to disseminate the energy source of the stars.
Einstein’s 1905 papers were initially ignored by the collective physics community. This shifted once Max Planck, founder of the quantum theory, took note of his work.
Soon thereafter, as more and more experiments confirmed Einstein’s theories, Einstein was invited to lecture at meetings internationally as he rose to stardom in the academic world.
Prestigious institutions soon started offering him positions until he took a directorial position at the University of Berlin in the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physics.
November 1915 saw Einstein complete his work on the general theory of relativity. World War I saw an interruption in his work but what followed would make him world-renowned.
Following the war, two expeditions set out to test his prediction of deflected starlight close to the sun. One took to Sobral in northern Brazil, and the other to Principe, off the coast of West Africa.
Both parties observed the solar eclipse of May 29, 1919. The results were announced on November 6 in London at a joint meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society and the Royal Society.
Almost immediately, Einstein became a world-renowned physicist, still famous today for his contributions to science.
This high-quality canvas wrap depicts a photograph of Albert Einstein taken during his 1921 world tour, during which he received word of his Nobel Prize.
Taken in Vienna, Austria, it depicts him mid-lecture and is one of the most famous photos of Einstein in the world.
A Note about Mockups:
All images of the product other than the first one have been computer generated to give you an idea of what it looks like in different settings and environments.
Any differences in appearance of these photos is due to the limitations of the computer generation software. The first image is the most accurate.
