Albert Einstein StatueA solitary and serene Genius, Albert Einstein is, by most accounts, the greatest theoretical physicist who ever lived. His contributions to man’s understanding of the universe are without parallel. More than any other scientist, he represents the embodiment of pure thought. His remarkably intuitive mind yielded theories which revolutionized scientific thought and changed forever our notions of space, time, motion, and the structure of the universe. His fame is based chiefly on his theories of special and general relativity, statistical physics, and the photon theory of light for which he received the Nobel Prize. He also played a significant role in the emergence of quantum mechanics. The last 30 years of his life were spent in a fruitless quest to combine electromagnetism, the nuclear forces, and gravitation into a single equation. He was recognized for his devotion to world peace and disarmament, and was committed to the causes of Zionism, liberalism, and humanism.
