He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his overall achievements in Theoretical Physics and his discovery of the law of the Photoelectric Effect. In addition to profoundly altering our understanding of space, time and energy with his scientific discoveries, Einstein became a passionate advocate of peace, world order and cooperation.
