Description:

This paper examines how Albert Einstein redesigned modern physics and developed the currently controversial topic of nuclear proliferation, with the creation of the atomic bomb in 1945. It looks at how the outstretch of his impact went even further with his pacifist and Jewish beliefs, establishing connections with Israel and globally influencing the concept of God in scientific studies. The paper attempts to show Albert Einstein's meritorious career created a significant movement within the 20th century, but the roots of his legacy began in Germany in 1879.

From the Paper:

"The colorful facade of Einstein's personality faded as the glooming presence of Hitler and Germany emerged. Throughout Zionism and all of his pacifism, Einstein was completely against violence, war, or anything of the like. He did not believe that he could split the atom, much less want it to happen. In 1938, three chemists found that the splitting of a uranium atom yields nuclear fission, which expels an intense wave of energy--enough to power a bomb. The years 1940 and 1941 saw comprehensive listings of data that confirmed the reality of a bomb made by this technique. Physicist Leo Szilard urged Einstein to write a letter to President Roosevelt and assisted him in drafting it. The famous letter to Roosevelt produced the biggest impact of his career."
