Einstein's death

Image result for how did einstein dieHe died in 1955 in New Jersey.
He was 76.
He died of an aneurysm in his abdomen.
According to his wishes, he was cremated the same day he died ( but not his brain) and his ashes were scattered somewhere.
There is no grave.
A pathologist removed his brain, without permission at first... and kept the brain in 2 mason jars.
There was pieces tested over the years, and it was returned to a pathologist at Princeton Hospital in 1998 !!
