Produced a rapid sucession of scientific papers that theorized 5 concepts in physical science, at the age of 26Released his General Theory of Relativity in 1916, other physicists applaudedProposed the famous equation E=Mc^2, which theorized that mass = energy Helped the U.S. develop the first atomic bombs

Lasting Impact

Albert Einstein put a great impact on the world with his brilliant theories and equations regarding physical science. He alone has led science in many different directions and has brought scientists of today to ponder over his scientific theories. Today, we use his principles and ideas as the backbone in the study of quantum physics. On top of that, Einstein was a member of the Manhattan Project, which was a top secret organization funded by the U.S. Government to develop Atomic weapons. Without Einsteins help, I think the development of the worlds first atomic weapon would've been delayed a few decades. Relatable to Leonardo Da Vinci's notebook drawings filled with technology that was way ahead of his time, Einsteins mind had revolutionary ideas that we still question to this day. Scientists would've eventually figured out how to use atomic weapons, but without Einsteins contribution to the Manhattan Project, World War II couldve ended much differently if the U.S. didn't bomb Nagasaki & Hiroshima.
