Description:

This paper discusses how Einstein was one of the greatest scientists that ever lived and how he was also a celebrity - something with which he was very comfortable. It looks at how the very name, Einstein, is synonymous with genius and it all because a man thinking about beams of light challenged and subsequently changed history with thoughts about that light and how it interplays with space and time.

From the Paper:

"It should also be recognized that Einstein did not just contribute to physics - he helped it evolve into what it is today. That includes all of the advancements that have been possible because of his theories. His theory of relativity was introduced in 1905 and by the end of the 1930s, he was already considered by many to be one of the greatest scientists the world has ever seen. His innovative theories include the theory of relativity, the mass-energy formula, the Brownian motion theory, and the photon theory of light. Simply put, Einstein's theories can be summed up saying, "Nothing can move faster than light" (Time). The scientist thought that mass and energy were equal, which resulted in his formula, E=mc2. According to Time magazine, the physicist "Louis de Broglie called Einstein's contributions that year 'blazing rockets which in the dark of the night suddenly cast a brief but powerful illumination over an immense unknown region'" (Time). "
