Albert Einstein was born in 1879 in the German city of Ulm. He had been no infant prodigy; indeed, he was so late in learning to speak that his parents feared he was
fool. In school, though his teachers saw no special
talent in him, the signs were already there. He taught
himself calculus, for example, and he told me that his
teachers seemed a little afraid of him because he
asked questions they could not answer. At the age of
16, he asked himself whether a light wave would seem
stationary if one ran side by side of it. It seems an
innocent question, but this shows. Einstein going to the
heart of a problem. From it there would arise, ten years
later, his theory of relativity.
