  • Einstein receives his degree

    Einstein receives his degree
    To be able to study at the Swiss Polytechnic in Zurich also without A-levels, Albert Einstein had to take a college entrance exam in October 1895. His performance in physics and mathematics was excellent. The performances in some of the other tested areas however were not sufficient. Subsequently he followed the advice the director of the Zurich University gave him and went to a school in Aarau and successfully passed. (Dank16)

    Einstein receives his first job

  • Einstein publishes papers

    Einstein publishes papers
    In 1905 Einstein simultaneously publishes four papers that changed our view of the world forever. Paper one talks about when you look at a mixture of dust and water under a microscope each particle doesn't stop moving. He proved that that if the particle was to be bombarded on all sides by water molecules it would change. This paper helped convince scientists about the existance of atoms and molecules. Paper two dealt with with electrons that come out of a metal plate when light shines on it.
  • Einstein publishes papers continued

    The unsettled problem of how light could both be a wave and a particle later returned to bother Einstein. Paper three dealt with the way of finding the size of molecules and is the least important paper of the four. The last paper was "Special heory of Relativity", it talks about how the speed of light is 186,000 miles per second, and that time is a constantly flowing river. that is independent of the speed of the observer.(Dank pg 29-30)
  • Einstein expands the special theory of relativity

    Einstein expands the special theory of relativity
    Einstein published another article expanding on the 1907 article. There, He used special relativity to see that the rate of clocks at the top of a box accelerating upward would be faster than the rate of clocks at the bottom. He concludes that the rates of clocks depend on their position in a gravatati of Scienceonal field, and that the difference in rate is proportional to the gravatational pull.

  • World War 1 Begins

    World War 1 Begins
    World War I was also known as the First World War, a global war centred in Europe that began on 28 July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918.

It was the end of the German, Russian, Ottoman, and Austro-Hungarian empires and was formation of new countries in Europe and Middle East. (Grun)
  • Einstein Publishing of "Theory of Relativity"

    Einstein Publishing of "Theory of Relativity"
    This was the final form of the general theory of relativity. The first form Einstein published in 1905 about special theory. The parts of relativity are special and general. General relativity has to do with gravity while special is about spacetime.This was his final copy where his theories were accepted into science in1920.
  • Einstein recieves Noble Prize

    Einstein recieves Noble Prize
    Albert Einstein was awarded the Nobel Price for physics in 1921. He recieved the price "for his merits concerning theoretical physics, especially for his discovery of the law of photoelectric effect". Einstein was not awarded the Nobel Price for the theory of relativity. (Albert Einstein)
  • Einstein publishes "The Meaning of Relativity"

    Einstein publishes "The Meaning of Relativity"
    This is a description of the book written by Einstein:"A condensed unified presentation intended for one who has already gone through a standard text and digested the mechanics of tensor theory and the physical basis of relativity. Einstein's little book then serves as an excellent tying-together of loose ends and as a broad survey of the subject". (World Book Encyclopedia of Science)

    "Black Thursday" the stock market crashes
    On October 24th, 1929, wall street crashed which killed the stocks and economy of the U.S.This event was the most devasting stock market crash in the history of the United States, when taking into consideration the full extent and duration of its fallout.
