The Day Einstein Died

The feature goes on to state why they decided to run the pictures 55 years after his death: is publishing these images now, as none of Einstein’s children or step-children are alive, and his last known biological grandchild died in 2008. (He does have living great-grandchildren.) There is no longer any reason to keep these pictures, and their story, in the dark.

That lead me to research his great-grandchildren, and I found that one is actually an anesthesiologist for a plastic surgeon.

I think it would be tough to be a direct descendant of Einstein.  As proud as you may be of the man, I would think that the expectation of intelligence would be stressful and that you would feel almost pressured to earn a doctorate of some kind.

    If you're an Einstein relative you would have to have a sense of humor growing up. I imagine whenever another kid outscored him on a science quiz, he'd never hear the end of it. It seems like their was a controversy about someone getting permission to study Einstein's brain and driving all over the country with it?

    After seeing this, I don't feel so bad about what my work spaces look like. :o)
