HB, Professor Einstein

On this day in 1879 in what is now the southern part of Germany, Pauline Koch Einstein gave birth to a son, Albert. After graduating from a technical school in 1900 and while working as a patent examiner, Albert Einstein published four papers in a prestigious German journal in 1905 (“Annus Mirabilis“). In 1922, the Nobel Foundation cited one of those papers as part of the foundation for awarding Mr. Einstein the Nobel Prize in theoretical physics.

He did much more, of course. There are many other physics works and there is his promotion of peace.

Anyway, happy birthday, Albert Eistein!
