Albert Einstein is known as one of the greatest scientific minds of all time. It was Albert Einstein who came up with the theory of relativity and the equation E= MC2. In fact Albert Einstein was considered so ingenious and intelligent that today to be referred to as an Einstein means that you are a genius.
Albert Einstein accomplished many things in his lifetime and is considered the father of modern physics. During his lifetime he completed work on his general theory of relativity, particle theory and worked on the foundation of photon theory. In 1921 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect. Albert Einstein also advised the U.S government that Germany may be developing the atomic bomb during World War II which led to the development of nuclear weapons in the United States. He also completed studies showing the dangers of military use of nuclear energy.
When Did Albert Einstein Die?
Albert Einstein died on April 18th 1955 at the age of 76. He was admitted to Princeton hospital on the evening of April 17th complaining of chest pain. It was discovered that he has a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm and was bleeding internally. Albert Einstein refused treatment stating that “I have done my share, it is time to go. I will do it elegantly.” His remains were cremated and scattered around the grounds of the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey. His brain was removed without permission by the pathologist at the Princeton Hospital in the hope that future doctors would be able to work out why Einstein was so intelligent.
