Have you ever used your imagination to solve a problem? When Albert Einstein was young, he was fascinated by the way magnetism made a compass work. As an adult, he used thought experiments to solve some of the universe’s greatest mysteries. Einstein loved to think about math and science. He worked for a while at a patent office, but his mind wasn’t focused on inventions. Instead, he thought about the universe. In 1905, Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity solved questions that scientists had grappled with for hundreds of years. Learn how Einstein’s imagination became a powerful tool that helped him understand the nature of space and time.
