"The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education"
-Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Germany to a Jewish couple. While having initial complications with a misshapen head during child birth, he grew normally. However it was commented by Albert Einstein's relatives that he was a little slow. Einstein's lack of intelligent was shown by his late age of learning how to speak. His first formal education (besides the private education he received before school) was at a Catholic school in Munich . This institution was short-lived because of Einstein's taste and disagreements with the professor. He left the school and Ulm Germans and moved to Milan .

While in Milan , Einstein wanted

"When you sit with a nice girl for two hours, it seems like two minutes. When you sit on a hot stove for two minutes, it seems like two hours that's relativity."
-Albert Einstein

In 1905 Einstein published five revolutionary papers in the scientific magazine "Annalen der Physik". In April of that same year, Einstein submitted his doctorial thesis, "A New Determination of Molecular Dimensions". Some of the other papers that he published include his famous article "On A Heuristic Point of View Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light" in which Einstein described the electromagnetic radiations of light by using Max Planck's quantum hypothesis. Einstein states that "in order for an electron to be removed from the cathode, a given quantity of energy had to be delivered to the atom". This revolutionary publication won him the Nobel Prize in 1921.

Another one of his papers was "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" in which Einstein reveals special relativity. In his paper he describes a stationary clock and a clock in motion:

"If at the points A and B of K there are stationary clocks which, viewed in the stationary system, are synchronous; and if the clock at A is moved with the velocity v along the line AB to B, then on its arrival at B the two clocks no longer synchronize, but
