Learn the location of where Albert Einstein's brain is kept.
Einstein was cremated after his death on April 18, 1955. The doctor who performed the autopsy removed Einstein's brain, part of which now rests in a bottle somewhere in Weston, Missouri. Albert Einstein (1879-1955) was the principal founder of modern theoretical physics; his theory of relativity (speed of light is a constant and not relative to the observer or source of light), and the relationship of mass and energy (E=MC2), fundamentally changed human understanding of the physical world. His stature as a scientist, together with his strong humanitarian stance on major political and social issues, made him one of the outstanding men of the 20th century.
