Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) continues to be one of the most fascinating and beloved physicists and intellectuals to have ever lived. He is often regarded as the father of modern physics. He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect."
Einstein published more than 300 scientific and over 150 non-scientific works. (source: Wikipedia)
One of the most famous of his scientific breakthroughs is expressed in the equation E=mc^2. In which the "E" represents energy, "m" represents mass, and the "c" is the speed of light in vacuum. This equation is the expression of the mass-energy equivalence and it is one of the pillars of modern physics.
The illustrated Bubble Chamber on this T-shirt shows one of the most unbelievable moments in science. A quantum of light carries energy from the left. In the middle it spontaneously changes into mass where two newly created particles (eg. electron and positron) which curve away from each other are born, something new created from just energy! Particles have curved trajectories because the Bubble Chamber is immersed in a magnetic field.
The illustration on this shirt is taken from the actual photo of one of the first liquid Hydrogen Bubble Chamber experiments at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) in early 1960s.
