Albert Einstein's equation for the General Theory of Relativity, on a red background. General relativity generalises special relativity and Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time, or spacetime.
Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist and philosopher of science. He developed the general theory of relativity. He is best known in popular culture for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation").
Albert Einstein: (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the general theory of relativity. While best known for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"), he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics " for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect".The latter was pivotal in establishing quantum theory.
