Albert Einstein (1879–1955) became all these things and more when his theories of special and general relativity were recognised as the twin pillars of modern physics and cosmology. The Nobel Prize winner revolutionised accepted ideas about time and space to develop his theories. He was one of the first to delve into the new field of quantum mechanics, working on the photoelectric effect and the nature of light.
Our Albert Einstein, Special Theory of Relativity cover depicts Einstein’s notes on the effects of travelling close to the speed of light.
