    He's the guy with the white fuzzy hair who tried to catch up with a beam of light, in theory at least.

    Have you tried searching for "Albert Einstein" on wikipedia?

    Seriously, it's like asking us how you can find out about this mysterious guy "Abraham Lincoln" that no one seems to have written anything about.

    A little kid refused to run anymore. When his mother asked him why, he replied, "I heard that the faster you go, the shorter you become".

    ummm, yah generally his theory is relatively important, pretty super too



    Albert also goes by the name Hilter, Issac Newton, Connor Humpleby and Superman

    I also heard he once desguised himself as Alberta Einsteinium on a Broadway Musical to evade tax collectors

    If I recall correctly, he was voted person of the century by Time Magazine. I suppose that means he was and is a pretty significant individual. Although, Einstein might be slightly overrated due to being so recent; for example, Newton is less well known to most individuals than is Einstein even though he influenced science as a whole to a greater degree than did Einstein.

    Despite that, he was a pretty important scientist.
