Albert Einstein- The Theoretical physicist

Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Germany. Albert Einstein worked as a professor in several places of Europe. In 1909 hebecame Professor Extraordinary at Zurich, in 1911 Professor of Theoretical Physics at Prague. In 1914 became the Director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Physical Institute from 1913 to 1933 andProfessor in the University of Berlin.
Albert Einstein completed his general theory of relativity, in November 1915 when he was thirty-six years old.
“When Einstein applied his theory togravitational fields, he derived the "curved space-time continuum" which depicts the dimensions of space and time as a two-dimensional surface where massive objects create valleys and dips inthe surface. This aspect of relativity explained the phenomena of light bending around the sun, predicted black holes as well as the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMB) -- a discoveryrendering fundamental anomalies in the classic Steady-State hypothesis.”[1]
The theory of relativity states that objects will move slower, and will also shorten in length from the pointof view of a person on Earth. Albert Einstein also came up with an equation, E = mc2, which lets us know the equivalence of mass and energy.
Albert Einstein tried to introduce a term knownas Cosmological Constant, this was created to understand an static universe. An static Universe it’s a Universe that its not contracting or expanding. To create this term was useless, becausethe static universe described in his theory was unstable. After analyzing observations made by Hubble about distant galaxies, Albert Einstein was able to confirmed that our universe isnot static but expanding.

The biggest blunder of his life was the cosmological constant.
