1) Albert Einstein was famous for various scientific studies and his contribution to Physics. Major ones include theory of relativity.

2) His mathematical equation e=mc^2 (energy equals mass times the velocity of light squared), became the foundation for the development of atomic energy. And hence he was often called as 'father of the atomic age'.

3) He enjoyed the world fame after achieving the Nobel Prize in the year 1921. He was awarded the prize for his contribution to the law of photoelectic effect.

4) When he died, Albert's brain was removed by Thomas Harvey, a pathologist. Thomas took out his brain to do the research on how Albert's brain functioned. As Thomas did not had any permission to remove his brain, the controversies once again made Albert to appear in top news even after his death.
