The greatest scientist of the century

Albert Einstein, the wax sculptor at Madame Tussaud in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Do you know that man? The person who has long hair, staring downwards, and sitting in the dark place; all his personality might be enough to describe his character and merits. Is he a philosopher, artists or scientists or prophets? All blended in one person.

Whatever you might have been thinking about him, might be hundred percent true. He is the greatest scientist ever produced, he is the peace worker or the great philosopher or politician who rejected the offer to be the second president of Israel. Now, let's say something about him, he is Albert Einstein. He was born in 14 March, 1879 at Ulm, Uttenberg Germany and died on 18 April 1955 at Princeton, the USA. He became famous with his invention about the "theory of relativity" for what he was given Noble prize on Physics. Einsteins had typical IQ of 180. He had failed in Maths and Science in School, and he was high school drop out. He had failed the university entrance exam for the first time. But, he was gifted child and world renowned person in the field of Science, who is normally claimed as the greatest scientist ever.
Einstein published over 300 scientific works and over 150 non-scientific works. Einstein is revered by the physics community and in 1999 Time magazine named him the "Person of the Century". In wider culture the name "Einstein" has become synonymous with genius.
