Genrikh Saulovich Altshuller was born on October 15, 1926 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan (formerly the USSR) to a family of journalists. A few years later, the family moved to Baku, Azerbaijan (USSR).

Altshuller was awarded his first author's certificate (the Soviet-era equivalent of a patent) for a diving gear when he was in the tenth grade. While in high school, he also built and tested a boat with a jet engine that used carbide as fuel.
