    Biography

    Albert Einstein is one of the most important scientists of the 20th century. He published his special theory of relativity in 1905 while working in the Patent Office at Bern, which lead him to one of the most popular physical equations, mass-energy equivalence: E=mc². In 1915 he reformulated the concept of gravity and published the general theory of relativity. As a consequence, cosmology emerged as the scientific study of the origin and evolution of the universe. The press raised him as a science icon in 1919, after British observations of an eclipse confirmed what he had predicted about light curving.

    His explanations on the photoelectrical effect and his contributions to theoretical physics made him win the Nobel Prize in 1921, however it was not thanks to his Theory of Relativity since the scientist who evaluated it did not quite understand it well and did not know want to take any risk.

    In 1932 he left Germany running from the Nazis and moved to the United States. He became a professor at the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton. He became a United States citizen in 1949. He dedicated his last years to formulate a theory that compelled both gravity and electromagnetic energy. He died in Princeton, New Jersey, on April 18th 1955. Some say he is the ‘father of the atomic bomb’, yet in his writings he always called for peace.

      Quiero aportar un dato que quizas de la vuelta al 1er puesto, o deberia...La mayoria de las "ideas" de Einstein eran de su mujer en realidad...asi que no era tan grande este señor, ádemas, como dato ya irrelevante para el ranking, pegaba a la ya nombrada

      los actos o acciones de un cientifico o procer se puede medir por su trascendendencia o impacto social en su momento ,es ahi por ejemplo la comparacion de la llegada de colon a las americas con la conquista lunar! en lo personal creo que tiene mayor merito colon ,sin negar claro esta la enorme importancia del alunizaje

      pienso que es muy buena idea ,instruye ,abre al libre pensamiento y a debatir de manera altruista ,extrapolando acciones ,ideas o circunstancias,las ideas clasicas fueron en su momento innovadoras y dieron lugar a otras ideas ,las modernas ,que luego seran clasicas tambien,eso se llama evolucion
