21 Ada Lovelace
Augusta Ada King-Noel, Countess of Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine.
22 Max Planck
Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck was a German theoretical physicist whose work on quantum theory won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918. V 1 Comment
23 Charles Babbage
Charles Babbage was an English polymath. A mathematician, philosopher, inventor and mechanical engineer, Babbage, along with Ada Lovelace, is best remembered for originating the concept of a programmable computer.
24 Werner Heisenberg
Werner Karl Heisenberg was a German theoretical physicist and one of the key pioneers of quantum mechanics.
Developed quantum physics and the Uncertainty Principle. It was so complex and revolutionary even Einstein couldn't accept it.
(P.S. He won the Nobel Prize at 31, making him the 2nd-youngest person to win it. )
25 James Clerk Maxwell
Maxwell's work was precursor for Einsteins derivations.
26 Mahmoud Hessaby
He knew what is humanity and devoted all his life for it.
A Scientist and a country developer!
27 Otto Hahn
28 Richard Feynman
Richard Phillips Feynman was an American theoretical physicist known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as in particle physics for which he proposed the ...read more.
A brilliant mind who pioneered quantum computing and nanotechnology.
29 Erwin Schrodinger
Erwin Rudolf Josef Alexander Schrödinger, sometimes written as Erwin Schrodinger or Erwin Schroedinger, was a Nobel Prize-winning Austrian physicist who developed a number of fundamental results in the field of quantum theory, which formed the basis of wave mechanics: he formulated the wave equation ...read more.
Aristotle was a Greek philosopher and scientist born in the city of Stagira, Chalkidice, on the northern periphery of Classical Greece.
Even though he was wrong in more or less all his notions he still was the man behind empiric thinking ��" the principle of all modern science where you test your ideas through practical experiments or create theories judged upon experiences.

37 Robert Koch
Robert Heinrich Hermann Koch (11 December 1843 – 27 May 1910) was a celebrated German physician and pioneering microbiologist. As the founder of modern bacteriology, he is known for his role in identifying the specific causative agents of tuberculosis, cholera, and anthrax and for giving experimental ...read more.
38 Michael Faraday
Michael Faraday FRS was an English scientist who contributed to the study of electromagnetism and electrochemistry.
He was said electro boy by n d Tyson he has never a formal education still he discovered dynamo, electric motor etc without him we could not have all tech was have today
