Timeline Of Albert Einstein  

Albert Einstein, a German-born physicist and a Nobel Prize winner, is well known for his immense contribution to science for discovering the law of photoelectric effect, the theory of relativity and also the famous mass-energy equation, E = mc2. He has published about 300 scientific papers and has contributed in more than 150 non-scientific works.
