Albert Einstein  (March 14, 1879April 18, 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist.

He is best known for his theory of relativity and specifically mass-energy equivalence, E = mc<sup>2</sup>. Einstein received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect."

Einstein's many contributions to physics include his special theory of relativity, which reconciled mechanics with electromagnetism, and his general theory of relativity which extended the principle of relativity to non-uniform motion, creating a new theory of gravitation. His other contributions include relativistic cosmology, capillary action, critical opalescence, classical problems of statistical mechanics and their application to quantum theory, an explanation of the Brownian movement of molecules, atomic transition probabilities, the quantum theory of a monatomic gas, thermal properties of light with low radiation density (which laid the foundation for the photon theory), a theory of radiation including stimulated emission, the conception of a unified field theory, and the geometrization of physics.

Works by Albert Einstein include more than fifty scientific papers and also non-scientific books.In 1999 Einstein was named Time magazine's "Person of the Century", and a poll of prominent physicists named him the greatest physicist of all time. In popular culture the name "Einstein" has become synonymous with genius.

In 1999, Albert Einstein was named "Person of the Century" by Time magazine <cite class="inline">(Golden 2000)</cite>, the Gallup Poll recorded him as the fourth most admired person of the 20th century and according to The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History, Einstein is "the greatest scientist of the twentieth century and one of the supreme intellects of all time" <cite class="inline">(Hart 1978)</cite>.

A partial list of his memorials:

In 1990, his name was added to the Walhalla temple.

Me too! His hairstyle is scientific too…electrified, I guess he had a special comb for it. Or maybe he made a new law of hairdom, he forgot to share. LOL .

Has anyone seen the movie ‘Young Einstein’? I saw it when I was 5 and that damn movie had me under the impression Einstein invented beer, surfing and rock’n’roll for 4 years. Gotta love old Einstein and his hairdo, though I think Donald Trump’s hairdo might be just a tad cooler.

I'd voted him for the best hair style

I had his hair style…...but I eated it.  Actually, my wife and I LOVE Physics.  We are big fans of Albert Einstein and his best friend and rival, Niels Boehr, who is almost as famous and intelligent as Einstein himself.  The two men were BEST friends throughout life, but took totally OPPOSITE views of Physics in many areas.  There is a marvellous photograph of the two of them walking down the street together,  Niels is frantically gesturing , yelling, and pleading to get his point across about something in Physics, and Einstein is calmly and undisturbedly walking , non-plussed, with this marvelous, confident, half smiling, smirk, that shows that Einstein knows that HIS ideas on the matter, NOT Niels', are correct.
