    He won the Nobel Prize for the Photoelectric Effect and is also well known to have been involved in the atom bomb development, i'd say science.

    and we were asking for context for the question not saying that it was a stupid question

    he is famous for saying that "no matter what difficulties you have in mathematics, I can assure you, mine are more severe". Obviously, he was not an idiot, and indeed a very good mathematician. But is real brilliance came from being able to understand and see beyond the physical world around us. He struggled with complex maths involved in general relativity (and that's why it took him soo long to publish) - so it's hope for all budding physicists out there who don't instantly grasp the complex maths involved in physics today!

    It's a shame he didn't win a Nobel prize for relativity.

    he couldnt win the nobel prize for relativity because it was not experimentally deduced. The nobel prize is awarded for experimental work, following Nobel's work with TNT (I believe). So you can't get it for theories - relativity is based upon an unproveable axiom that certain physical laws hold for all people (e.g. speed of light). It is not experimental (unlike photoelectric effect, where he did experiments with light and stuff and deduced the formula and then explained it).

    I don't know nearly as much about him as some, but i've always associated him with science.

    You need to differentiate between Science and Maths before you can answer the question. Science and Maths cross over to such an extent that it would be more logical to think of maths as a branch of science along with physics, chemistry and biology. Or simarlarly you could think of science as a extension of science.

    hmmm....

    Erm, yes he was lol.

    He wrote to Roosevelt telling him about the Nazis attempt to make a bomb, this then pretty much convinced America to do their own bomb. I don't know how much work he did if any in building the bomb itself maybe that's what your on about.
