Albert Einstein. Artwork of Albert Einstein (1879- 1955), German-Swiss-US physicist, on a background of stars strewn across space. Einstein's famous mass- energy equation resulted from his 1905 paper on Special Relativity. This paper, with his 1915 General Theory of Relativity, replaced the previously unshakeable Newtonian world view, rewriting the concepts of gravity, space and time. He won the 1921 Nobel Prize for Physics for work on the photoelectric effect. He lived in the USA from 1933, encouraging the atomic bomb project and then campaigning for world peace.
