A German-born theoretical physicist, Albert Einstein believed Newtonian mechanics was not sufficient to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics and those of the electromagnetic field. This led him to develop his theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics along with quantum mechanics.
In 1921 Albert Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. His home seized and his books burned by the Nazis he moved to the U.S.A. He alerted President Roosevelt to the Germans development of a new type of powerful bomb. This warning resulted in the initiation of the Manhattan Project. A pacifist, Einstein denounced using nuclear fission as a weapon.
