Albert Einstein

birthdate: March 14
Ulm, Germany

Albert Einstein's name has become synonymous with the word 'genius.' His revolutionary scientific and mathematical theories about energy, space and time made him the most famous scientist during the early 1900s, and he is still one of the most important people in history. Albert Einstein is also often thought of as the 'father of the atomic bomb.' Although Dr. Einstein did urge President Roosevelt to develop the bomb before the Germans did during World War II, and his theories provided the foundation for its development, he didn't have much to do with the actual creation of the first atomic bomb. After the atomic bomb was used by the United States on Japan, Albert Einstein deeply regretted his involvement and spent the rest of his life advocating for the abolition of nuclear weapons. He also spoke out continually for the cause of peace and nonviolence and international law as the only way our world can survive.
