Albert Einstein was born in Germany in 1879 by Jewish parents and is one of the most famous scientists of the 20th century.
- Einstein settled in Switzerland and then, after Hitler’s rise to power, in the United States.
- His theories on relativity set the framework for a new physics branch and the E = mc2 formula about mass and energy equivalence is one of the most famous formulas in the world. This formula states that anything having mass has an equivalent amount of energy. Specifically, the equivalent energy (E) is equal to the mass (m) multiplied by the speed of light (c) squared.
- In 1921 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his contributions to theoretical physics and the evolution of Quantum Theory.
- Einstein is also known as a free thinker, speaking in a series of humanitarian and global issues. He died in 1955 at the age of 76 after internal bleeding caused by abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture.
