Born during the German Empire in 1879, Albert Einstein went on to have one of the most important and historically significant careers of all scientists. An acclaimed physicist and public thinker, many of the theories that Einstein introduced during his scientific career have gone on to revolutionize the fields of energy, engineering, and multimedia.
Like most successful people, Einstein had exposure to his skill at an early age. His father, who was an engineer, showed the young boy a pocket watch during his youth, expecting him to be amazed at its magi properties. Instead, Einstein looked at the watch and immediately knew that there was a force of some sort propelling it around the structure – an early moment of intellectual curiosity.
