Albert Einstein (1879-1955) made great contributions in physics which are vastly influencing the quality of our lives today.
In science, he maintained that while we understand the world in terms of reason, the way a theory is accepted is through the criteria of aesthetics.
Einstein’s personality was as impressive as his scientific work. Personal responsibility was the basis of his passionate and active interest in social justice. He was committed to a world of simplicity and harmony.
He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921.
