Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was born in 1879 in the German city of Ulm. He was no prodigy as infant. In fact he was so late to speak that his parents were concerned he was fool. In school, his teachers saw no special talent in him though the signs of his intelligence were there. He taught himself calculus for example, and it is said that his teachers seemed a little afraid of him because he asked questions they could not answer. His gift was no secret. At the age of 16, he asked himself whether a light wave would seem stationary if one ran with it. It may seem like a strange question, but it shows that Einstein was digging deep to the heart of a problem. Ten years later would arise his theory of relativity.
