Today is the anniversary of the birthday of Albert Einstein. He is said to be one of the most important scientists in history. Einstein was born in Ulm, German in 1879. Thought of as a genius at a young age, Einstein created many new theories in physics. During his life, Einstein wrote hundreds of books and articles. He worked alone and with other scientists on projects. He is most famous for the Theory of Relativity, which is E=MC2. In 1921, Einstein was given the Nobel Prize for Physics. He was also chosen as Time Magazine’s Person of the Century.
