The fourth instalment of the series showcases Albert Einstein, who is revered as one of the most influential physicists of all time. He is most known for developing the theory of relativity, first predicting the existence of black holes, and making essential contributions to the development of the theory of quantum mechanics through his explanation of the photoelectric effect and postulation of light quanta. Einstein’s work also heavily influenced the philosophy of science, and he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his contributions to the field of theoretical physics.
The German-born scientist denounced Adolf Hitler due to his pacifist nature and Jewish background. He, along with other major scientists, endorsed a letter sent to President Franklin D. Roosevelt that let him know the Germans were researching nuclear weapons and that the U.S. should be aware and conduct its own research. Einstein, however, firmly opposed using nuclear weapons in war, but feared what the Nazis would do if they weaponized them first, Einstein’s legacy is a testament to his immense intelligence, curiosity, humour and compassion for fellow man. The realms of science and mathematics wouldn’t be where they are today without his contributions.
