Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German physicist and one of the most well-known scientists of all time. Einstein independently developed the theory of relativity, the backbone of modern physics, and received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for discovering the photoelectric effect and his overall contribution to theoretical physics. Einstein is most well-known for his equation E = mc2, the formula for mass-energy equivalence which shows that mass is directly related to energy.
