Albert Einstein : World remembers this Nobel Prize winner for 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.

He developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics).

Einstein's work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science.

Einstein is best known in popular culture 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", in particular his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory.

Near the beginning of his career, Einstein thought that Newtonian mechanics was no longer enough to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. This led to the development of his special theory of relativity. He realized, however, that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields...In 1917, Einstein applied the general theory of relativity to model the large-scale structure of the universe.

On the eve of World War II, he endorsed a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt alerting him to the potential development of "extremely powerful bombs of a new type" and recommending that the U.S. begin similar research. This eventually led to what would become the Manhattan Project.

Einstein refused surgery in the end, saying: "I want to go when I want. It is tasteless to prolong life artificially. I have done my share, it is time to go. I will do it elegantly." He died in Princeton Hospital early the next morning at the age of 76, having continued to work until near the end.

Mother : Pauline Einstein
(before marriage surname : Koch) (8 February 1858 – 20 February 1920) Bhau was born on 12th Feb and left this world on 9th February)

Father : Hermann Einstein (30 August 1847 – 10 October 1902) Founder
Interesting : Pauline and Hermann got married on 8th August 1876 (8th August is the birth date of founder Sanjay Moreshwar Bapat - he says 1st birthdate because he thinks 28.08.2013 was his second birth because he survived an almost fatal accident on 28.08.2013 where his father Bhau - was the first person to save him by taking him to hospital. Albert Einstein began with violin lessons at the age of five and Bhau also played Violin)
Sister of Albert Einstein : Maria (called Maja)

1st wife : Marić
Marić and Einstein were lovers and had a daughter Lieserl in 1902; the daughter died in 1903 before their marriage later that year.
Daughter & sons : Lieserl, Hans Albert and Eduard.

2nd wife : Elsa
Elsa was cousin of Albert Einstein. Their mothers were sisters, making them first cousins, and their fathers were first cousins, making them second cousins.
Elsa had the surname of Einstein at birth, lost it when she took the name of her first husband Max Löwenthal, and regained it in 1919 when she married her cousin Albert.
Although Albert and Elsa did not have any children of their own, Albert raised Elsa's children, Ilse and Margot as his own.
