Famous People

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein (1879-1955) was perhaps the most famous physicist ever. Although he was born in Germany, he moved to Switzerland early on and then spent the last twenty years of his life living in the United States.

He is so well-known that his name is often used as a synonym for a genius. No wonder, at the age of twelve, he could count better than most adults. But not only that. People often also imagine an eccentric: a person who is so deep in their thoughts that they don’t care if they look or behave oddly. After all, Einstein almost always had crazy hair and no socks on.

Einstein’s perhaps most famous idea is the theory of relativity. This discovery is helping us in our everyday life because it is used, for example, in GPS.


The Lord of the Rings

The Lord of the Rings is a film trilogy directed by Peter Jackson and based on a fantasy trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkien. Released between 2001-2003, the films are among the most successful ever made. They follow the story of Frodo, a hobbit from Middle-earth, who has to destroy a ring to defeat the evil Sauron. As is usually the case in fantasy, besides men and hobbits, there are many other kinds of creatures, such as elves, dwarves, wizards, and orcs.

Both the books and the films are famous for its size and depth. For example, there were around 18,000 costumes made for the films. Each main character had around 30 copies of the same costume and there were as many as 150 types of different clothes designed for each kind of creature in the story.
