He recieved the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921, and immigrated to the United States in 1933, fearing that he, being Jewish, would be persecuted back home in Germany. He was the one who made President Franklin D. Roosevelt aware of the possibility of an atomic bomb, though he later begged Roosevelt to reconsider using it as a weapon.
During his lifetime, Einstein published over 450 papers, though he wrote over 30,000 that were later compiled and made available to the public. The name Einstein is now synonymous with the term "genius," and his face is the most recognized face in the world.
