Albert Einstein did not have a middle name. He was born on March 14, 1879, in Ulm, Württemberg, Germany. Some of his most remarkable work was completed while he worked as a patent clerk, because he could not find a teaching job.

Albert Einstein published his paper on the general theory of relativity in 1916. His famous equation E = mc^2 showed that mass could be converted into energy and vice versa ,since the speed of light is constant. This is illustrated when nuclear particles are smashed to produce energy and when low-mass particles moving quickly collide to form larger particles. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his work in theoretical physics. His theories have been the basis for many breakthroughs in physics.
