After the rise of the Nazi party, Einstein made Princeton his permanent home, becoming a U. Einstein, a pacifist during World War I, stayed a firm proponent of social justice and responsibility.

Einstein thought that Newtonion mechanics was no longer enough to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field.
This led to the development of his special theory of relativity. He realized, however, that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields, and with his subsequent theory of gravitation inhe published a paper on the general theory of relativity.
He continued to deal with problems of statistical mechanics and quantum theory, which led to his explanations of particle theory and the motion of molecules.
He also investigated the thermal properties of light which laid the foundation of the photon theory of light. He was visiting the United States when Adolf Hitler came to power in and did not go back to Germany.
Roosevelt alerting him to the potential development of "extremely powerful bombs of a new type" and recommending that the U. This eventually led to what would become the Manhattan Project.
