Einstein and the Nobel Prize

Interesting look at why Albert Einstein never received the Nobel Prize for his theory of relativity.

E=MC2 may be the most famous scientific equation in history but it was never quite good enough for the Nobel committee. The committee eventually gave Einstein the Nobel in 1921 for his 1905 explanation of the photoelectric effect but that was really too little too late.
