A Star Certificate for Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein´s strong mastermind
Considered the greatest scientist of all time, Einstein's theory of relativity, his research and other major contributions to science, became the foundation of many branches of modern physics, medicine and philosophy.
Why does Albert Einstein deserve his own star?
We name a star for Albert Einstein in honor to his knowledge and perseverance in life which lead him to challenge and explore theoretical physics. He was a great thinker and strongly believed that there was something else to discover that would unify both, classical mechanics and electromagnetic fields together.

The life of Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein was born on May 14th 1879 in Ulm, Germany. He was a very quiet child and spoke his first words after he was 2 years old. His difficulty with language was a concern to his family that thought he would never learn. Who would have known?
A life changer for him was a magnetic compass that his father gave him as a gift in 1884 when he was 4 years old. He was intrigued and fascinated more than anybody would imagine, on how and why the needle would always point north. Consequently this was the magical moment that made science his passion.
He was 10 when he was introduced to Max Talmey, a 21-year-old medical student, who visited his parent's home to enjoy weekly lunches with the Einstein family where his interest in natural science books had been awakened. Unexpectedly, Max became his first mentor and a lifelong lasting friend.
Albert Einstein married Mileva Maric on January 6th 1903, a former fellow student who had given birth to his first child Liesel a year before. Despite all his knowledge, he struggled to find a job and decided to advertise himself as a teacher for private lessons. The next year his son Hans Albert was born and finally he started to work at the Patent Office in Bern.
It was in 1907 when Einstein began to work with the theory of relativity and discovered the principle of equivalence of mass and energy. This breakout and his publications started to grant him different awards like the doctorate of the University of Zurich and later the doctorate at the University of Bern.
Many more awards were to follow. His second son Edward was born in 1910 in Zurich. He then became a full-time professor at the German University in Prague. Albert started to see his divorced cousin Elsa Löwentall and as a result they fell in love. He and Mileva went separate paths and finally divorced in 1917.
Albert Einstein presented his finished theory of relativity in 1915 at the Prussian Academy of Sciences. A very intense period of work, new discoveries and new publishing seriously affected his health. His cousin Elsa took care of him as it took him several years to recover.
After making his theory of relativity public and successfully predicting the effects of a solar eclipse, Albert Einstein became a legend around the world. It was 1921 when he received his first Nobel Prize.
He was presented with awards and recognitions, highlighting the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society (1921), the Copley Medal (1925), Max Plank Medal (1929), and Member of the National Academy of Science (1942) among others.
Albert Einstein in World War II and his last years
Because of Hitler´s rising power in the Nazi party, he announced in January 1933 he wouldn´t return to Germany and migrated to the USA with his wife Elsa to establish in Princeton, New Jersey, and became an American citizen on October 1st 1940.
In 1941, Einstein participated in the “Manhattan Project” to develop an atomic bomb. He was concerned about the possible danger of the US being attacked by other countries as he previously stated in a letter to the then-ongoing president Franklin D. Roosevelt.
That same year the Pearl Harbor attack made by Japan took place which made the USA enter the war. Four years later, unfortunately Hiroshima´s attack with two atomic bombs happened to mark the end of World War II. His famous speech was given during a Nobel memory dinner where his famous phrase was delivered: “The war is won, but the peace is not”.
He worked intensively to promote peaceful use of atomic energy for the rest of his life. Albert Einstein died at Princeton in April 1955 due to heart failure.
“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere”.
Albert Einstein's life was lived to the fullest. His heritage to our world is priceless. His quotes, wisdom and modesty will always be appreciated. A genius mind that will always be remembered.
