Albert Einstein (March 14, 1879 – April 18, 1955) 

Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the 
theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside
quantum mechanics). His work is also known for its influence on the
philosophy of science. He is best known by the general public for his
mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed
"the world’s most famous equation").
