Einstein's Miracle Year: How He Produced Four Groundbreaking Papers in a Year

Einstein's name is synonymous to genius. His fame is known the world over for his revolutionary ideas in physics. But nobody told us he had a very interesting backstory.

In 1902, a young, depressed, and solemn 21-year-old Albert Einstein was on the verge of giving up on his dream of becoming a physicist... And after graduating, Einstein couldn’t get a job—in fact, he was passed over for a role as a lab assistant, and even contemplated selling insurance.
