At the turn of the 20th century, one man single-handedly changed the face of science. Albert Einstein, perhaps the world’s most famous physicist, had a profound effect on the planet, the results of which can still be felt today. And as you might expect, being a celebrity genius was a lucrative business, even back then. But after his death, his wealth didn’t go to his family. Instead, it went to a unique place. And that decision would turn out to have serious repercussions for some of his relatives.

Starting in 1905, Einstein spent much of his life turning physics on its head. From the Theory of Relativity to perhaps the best-known equation ever written, E=mc2, his ideas and discoveries have shaped the modern world in incredible ways. In fact, without him, the planet would be a very different place indeed.
