Albert Einstein is most famous for his theory of relativity, and his formula for mass-energy equivalence E = mc2 is known throughout the world by people who have no idea what it means. He won the 1921 Nobel Prize for his discovery of the photoelectric effect, and made significant contributions to the concept of wave-particle duality. He published more than 300 scientific papers, and 150 non-scientific ones. While he is known for his work in theoretical physics, crazy hair, and a great mustache, Einstein was also a great violin player, and said that he got the most joy in life out of music.
