Some unknown facts about Albert Einstein and his personal life

Einstein's hobbies: All of us know about Albert Einstein and his invention but there are many secret of his life which few of us know. While Einstein was in college at the Polytechnic Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, he fell in love with sailing. He was extremely fond of sailing. He would regularly take a boat out onto the lake, pull out a notebook, relax, and think. Although he never learned to swim, he kept sailing as his hobby during his life. But on the other hand his mother, Pauline, was an accomplished pianist and wanted him to love music also, so she started him on violin classes since he was six years old. He hated playing the violin. But as he grown up, he suddenly changed his mind about the violin as he heard the music of Mozart. After this Einstein continued to play violin.

Brilliant mind: A question haunted Einstein for many years and has started as the beginning of his fascination with science. When he was five and sick his father showed him a simple compass. Einstein was mesmerized to see that. And he thought that what force exerted itself on the needle to make it point in a single direction. After this his creative invention has started.

His looks: Einstein's charm was his messy look and his hair was usually uncombed and one of Einstein's irregular habits was to not to wear socks. Whether to a formal dinner at the White House or it was as out sailing, Einstein went without socks every place. As according to Einstein, socks were a pain for him since they repeatedly will get holes in them.

Effective invention: At the age of Twenty-one after writing his special theory of relativity, Einstein invented a refrigerator that operated on alcohol gas. The refrigerator was patented but never went into production because new technology made it avoidable. Einstein invented the refrigerator as he read news about a family that was poisoned through sulphur dioxide-emitting refrigerator.




Bad habits: Einstein loved smoking. Since he walked between his office and his home at Princeton, one can often see him followed by a trail of smoke. Einstein is renowned as saying, "I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs," though he favoured pipes, Einstein was not one to refuse a cigar or yet a cigarette.

Love life and his daughter: In 1901, the college sweethearts Albert Einstein and Mileva Maric got married in Italy. After the vacation, Mileva found her pregnant. In that day and age, illegal children were not rare and yet they were also not accepted by society. Because Einstein did not have money to marry her nor the capability to support a child, two were not capable to get married. So Maric went back to her family and had the baby girl, whom she after that named Lieserl.

Though we know that Einstein knew about his daughter but we don't actually know what happened to her. At that time it is believed that their daughter either died suffering from scarlet fever at an early age or she survived scarlet fever and given up for adoption to someone else. Both of them kept the existence of their daughter so secret that Einstein scholars only discovered her existence in current years.

Second marriage: In 1919, As Einstein divorced his first wife, Mileva Maric, he married his cousin, Elsa Loewenthal. How closely were both of them connected? Elsa was in fact related to Albert on both sides of his family. Elsa's mother and Albert's mother were sisters; also Albert's father and Elsa's father were cousins. While they were both little, Albert and Elsa had played together; though, their romance only started once Elsa had married and divorced Max Loewenthal.

Death issues: In 1955 when he died, his body was cremated and his ashes scattered, as according to his wish. Though, before his body was cremated, pathologist Thomas Harvey at Princeton Hospital conducted an autopsy in that he isolated his brain. Before putting the brain back in his body, Harvey decided to keep it for study. Harvey did not have any legal permission to keep Einstein's brain, other than after so many days; he convinced Einstein's son that it would help science. Soon thereafter, Harvey was fired from his position at Princeton as he refused to give his brain.

For the next 40 years, Harvey kept his chopped-up brain in two jars with him as he moved around the country. Every once whereas, Harvey would slice off a piece and send it to a researcher. In 1998 at last, he returned Einstein's brain to the pathologist at Princeton Hospital.
