Albert Einstein as one of the most prominent and influential physicists of all time. He is most acknowledged for developing the theory of relativity.
There is a simplified explanation of the Theory of Relativity here..
Einstein received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his work and contributions to the field of theoretical physics.
The German-born scientist, he became an American citizen in 1940.
Einstein died 17 April 1955 at the age of 75. During the autopsy, the pathologist Thomas Stoltz Harvey removed Einstein's brain for preservation without the permission of his family, in the hope that the neuroscience of the future would be able to discover what made Einstein so intelligent. Einstein's remains were cremated in Trenton, New Jersey, and his ashes were scattered at an undisclosed location.
