Einstein, 1879-1955. German-born American theoretical physicist whose special and general theories of relativity revolutionized modern thought on the nature of space and time and formed a theoretical base for the exploitation of atomic energy. He won a 1921 Nobel Prize for his explanation of the photoelectric effect.

Some of his quotes.

In school he was not thought highly of. His teachers would not recommend him for a university position, some suggesting that he was a bit 'backward' in ability to comprehend.

Einstein divorced and later remarried. Problems with colleagues resulted from Einstein's beliefs about the nature of good theories and the relationship between experiment and theory.

He believed that scientific theories are the free creations of a finely tuned physical intuition and that the premises on which theories are based cannot be connected logically to experiment. Einstein wrote "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true science and art. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead, his eyes are closed."

Einstein devoted considerable time to generalizing his theory even more. His last effort, the unified field theory, which was not entirely successful, was an attempt to understand all physical interactions including electromagnetic interactions and weak and strong interactions,in terms of the modification of the geometry of spacetime between interacting entities.

His writings include.Relativity: The Special and General Theory.(1916); About Zionism.(1931);.Builders of the Universe.(1932);.Why War?.(1933), with Sigmund Freud;.The World as I See It.(1934);.The Evolution of Physics (1938), with the Polish physicist Leopold Infeld; and.Out of My Later Years (1950)..comprised with Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Einstein believed in the benefits of a mostly vegetarian diet.

"The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them."....Albert Einstein Theoretical Physicist
