Albert Einstein  1879-1955

He was born in Germany.  He was discovered to be a genius at an early age.  Albert would create a
revolutionary theory at the turn of the century known as E=mc squared
which explained his theory of relativity.  An object moving at light speed will age only proportionately
with the time traveled while all around will pass through time rapidly.
Einstein left Germany as Adolf Hitler was coming into power and German scientists were in
preparations to create an atomic weapon.  He asked for an audience with President Franklin D.
Roosevelt to discuss the urgency to create a similar device here and thus the Manhattan Project was
begun.  He would teach physics at Princeton.  Einstein would pass away on April 18, 1955 at the age
of 76 after creating many new theories in the scientific world.  Many of those theories and projects are
still Secret today.
