his 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics was "for his services to Theoretical
Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric

His "Miraculous Year" was 1905 when he published four ground-breaking papers:
* The Photoelectric Effect (showing light is a particle)
* Brownian Motion (showing matter is comprised of molecules)
* Special Relativity (exploring the weirdnesses of travelling near the speed of light)
* EQN:E=mc^2 (Energy and mass are equivalent)

He was so famous that his name has passed into common language to refer to
someone perceived as extremely clever.
