Caption: Albert Einstein (1879-1955), German-Swiss-US physicist. Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on 14 March 1879. Encouraged by his father, Einstein studied at the Zurich Polytechnic Institute until the age of 21, then worked at the Swiss Patent Office. Although famous for his papers on special and general relativity, he won the 1921 Nobel Prize for Physics for his work on the photoelectric effect. He lived in New Jersey, USA from 933, encouraging the atomic bomb project and later campaigning for world peace. Einstein died on 18 April 1955 without completing his Grand Unified Theory of the fundamental forces. Photographed in 1916.
