In celebration of his 135th birthday, Madame Tussauds D.C. and 4th graders from Seaton Elementary, donning white lab coats and goggles, unveiled the wax figure of one of the most influential scientists of all time, Albert Einstein. Albert Einstein (March 14, 1879 – April 18, 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist. He developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. He is best known for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 and received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics. Einstein published more than 300 scientific papers and his intellectual achievements and originality have made the word “Einstein” synonymous with genius.
