He was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm by a Donau in Schwaben, Germany. His parents are Jewish. His farther, Hermann, ran a electric store with his uncle, Jakob. His mother, Pauline Einstein, was a daughter of cereal dealer, and she was only 21 years old when Albert was born, on the contrary, Helman was 31 years old. He had a sister 2 years younger than him named Maria.

For Einstein, 1905 was a miracle year. In this year, he proposed 5 articles. In March, His third article on light quantum, "On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light", was published, in April, first article on Brownian motion, "A new determination of molecular dimensions", in May, second article on Brownian motion, "On the Motion?Required by the Molecular Kinetic Theory of Heat?of Small Particles Suspended in a Stationary Liquid", in June, fourth article on theory of special relativity, "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies", and in September, fifth article on deriving the equation E=mc2, "Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?" was published. In July, He got a Ph.D. from University of Zurich.

These five works show us the way for modern physics, we have never seen the great works by one person who is just a worker in Swiss Patent Office.

In November 1922, during a voyage to Japan, he got a news his getting a Nobel prize for physics. He was in Japan more than 1 month. He spent his last 30 years at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton to construct a unified force theory. Although he couldn't make it. He died on April 18 in 1955.
