Albert Einstein (March 14, 1879–April 18, 1955), the most famous scientist of the 20th century, revolutionized scientific thought. Having developed the Theory of Relativity, Einstein opened the door for the creation of the atomic bomb.

Nobel Prize Winner

Einstein won the 1921 Nobel Prize in physics. Yet, in 1901, after Einstein received his diploma as a teacher of physics and mathematics, he was unable to find a teaching position, so he went to work for the Swiss patent office.

He obtained his doctoral degree in 1905, the same year he published four significant papers, introducing the concepts of special relativity and the photon theory of light
