Albert Einstein was a very smart man -- probably one of smartest people of all time. In 1905, when he was 26, he had a "miracle year," in which he proved the existence and sizes of molecules, explained light as both particles and waves and created the Special Theory of Relativity. You can learn more about his life at the Skirball Cultural Center, which coincides with the 100th anniversary of that miracle year.
