Education Albert Einstein: Physicist and Pacifist Universally recognized as the physicist whose radical theories proposed completely new ways of thinking about space, time, and gravitation, Albert Einstein is perhaps lesser known for another important role he served during his lifetime as a pacifist (a person opposed to war). By the time the German-born physicist was thirty, his theory of relativity and work in quantum mechanics had set off a revolution in physics, marking the beginning of the Nuclear Age. Scientists working in the 1930s confirmed his energy-mass equation, E=mc², by building large machines that could break apart the nuclear core of atoms, resulting in a release of tremendous energy. Nuclear physicists soon realized the potential for this technology to be used for the construction of powerful bombs. After the outbreak of World War II, some of these scientists were afraid that Adolf Hitler might be developing such weapons using uranium as the source material.
