Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Germany. He was a Nobel laureate, best known as the creator of the special and general theories of relativity and for his bold hypothesis concerning the particle nature of light. He is perhaps the most well-known scientist of the 20th century.
Albert Einstein is a true science hero, not only because of his genius and physics theories, but also because of his philosophy and compassion for the universe and its creatures. Einstein's groundwork in physics made possible technology as we know it today, from the space shuttle to the Internet we're using right now. While it may also be said that his work led to the development of nuclear warfare, he himself was a peaceful man.
Albert Einstein is truly the father of modern science.
