I’ve always had the hots for Albert Einstein—smart is sexy, in my book. And, let’s face it, the man’s brain was a source of great fascination before and after his death.
He was much more than just a buff brain pin-up in silky IQ man-panties, though.
He was a charming, humorous soul and a womanizer who played the violin.
He didn’t consider himself that good at math and equations—I can so relate to that—so he came up with more conceptual “thought experiments.”
Young Einstein was also considered a rebel by many in the academic world. Did you know that, after graduation, he couldn’t get a teaching job and ended up having to work in a Swiss Patent Office?
In addition, he is most decidedly an inspiration to all of us to never give up: Albert used the extra time his Patent Office job gave him to develop his theories and his genius even further.
Oh, and, you know what else? His legacy lives on: In February 2016, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) spotted Gravitational Waves. In other words, they just saw the ripples in the fabric of spacetime that Einstein predicted 100 years ago.
Albert Einstein—rebel, musician, ladies man, and genius.
E is for Einstein because his legacy lives on— and not just in our hearts and minds. He lives on in our labs and observatories.
