Top 10 Greatest Scientists In History
His Scientific Achievements are foundational as much as they are significant. Moreover he did all this while serving as a member of parliament and being the head of the Royal Mint.
It still astounds me how he came up with his theory of classical mechanics. Genuine outside the box thinking that I inspire to be able to replicate
He is the father of mechanics, optics, and the inventor of the reflecting telescope, as well as the creator of calculus. Definitely the greatest scientist of all time.
He should at number 1 because he is the only scientist who worked on every fields of Physics whether it be light, sound or air. he even worked on motion and rest and on nuclear science.
He is very smart, but his life was just fine. On other hand, Nikola Tesla was poor, he tore document that today is worth billions and billion dollars for VestingHaus, he didn't want to struggle other people and ask for money, and his decision that pleasure will came just by thinking, and he discard all other physical pleasures including girls. True Legend!
Gotta be the most quoted, well know and overall the most influential scientist of all time. And all the things he discovered too... Totally changed the face of science on all accounts. A well deserved 1st place.
A genius is not just about being good at something or even the best at something. it is about how one views the universe-as objective as humanly possible-without the screens of emotions, fear and ignorancey. Einstein was truly the greatest genius!
Albert Einstein my favourite scientist of all time my role model and he is god for me. Incredible and superintelligent mind of all time in the world.
Greatest scientist of all time. Astonished that he is not on 1st. Have you ever heard of ball lightning? Till now it's a rare phenomenon and scientists can't perform this in their labs but tesla did it in 1890s.
This dude was just brilliant! Had vision, had intuition, had the creativity. Certainly most responsible for the larger scale 20th century technological advancements and beyond.
I'd go for Einstein but Tesla has a different views on why he invent things. Think about it, if JP Morgan didn't cut the funds for his experiment, we could've experienced free electricity right now. And I think it's because of him, we have Wi-Fi's.
Any modern technology being used he first created it. From AC current to laser, microwaves, x-rays, you name it. Even Einstien admited he is the smartest man who ever lived.
Galileo's work is what led newton into mathematics and calculus is what made Einstein's genius possible. Give some respect to the father of modern science.
He is the first person who treated physics as only possible weapon to explore cosmos..
It's a shame he never lived to receive the praise he has now.
He was house arrested by the Catholic Church for just speaking about it
He's a great scientist that helped millions of lives. For sure he has to be one of the top 3 best scientists of all time!
He's responsible for the existence of vaccines. Without him, many people will die for several diseases.
He is a really helpful and smart man by helping millions of peoples lives.
A woman who made the great contribution in the world of science. A woman who's under the discovery of radioactivity. I hope many women will follow her steps.
She's pretty much the source of our knowledge about radioactivity and X-Rays. Her discoveries have immense implications in medicine and things like nuclear power. I'm surprised and disheartened that she and Charles Darwin aren't higher on the list.
When whole the world was dominated by male scientists... she was the only who inspired many young girls to take science
Marie Curie discovered several elements and the x-ray. Come on guys.
The greatest scientific mind of all time. His theory of evolution should actually be a law as well proven as the law of gravity. To say that you don't "believe" in evolution is like saying that you don't believe in breathing.
This man should be higher. The hardest thing in science is to be able to see things that others can't/refuse to. Another out of the box thinker
If he didn't exists, you would still be an ape! He practically discovered evolution!
He's known for the theory of evolution of several species.
More or less unknown but the guiding light of most modern physics. Best known to physicists his work is too advanced for the general public to understand but without Maxwell's equations, most of the modern world including computers, the internet and relativity wouldn't have existed. Einstein even had his photo on his desk for inspiration. oh and as a hobby he created the first ever colour photo and described Saturns rings...a true genius
You can put Einstein and Newton in his company but barely anyone else.
Maxwell's work was precursor for Einsteins derivations.
He is above most of them tempered by tragically short life. A true genius
When I came to know he was not physically fine
I got the "The most inspiring scientist of all time"
This legend shows that impossible is just in mind..
Salute to this legend who tried to change word by just thinking...
With his breakthrough scheme ever noted in history of science "The Grand Design", although being physically disabled, he proved what man can accomplish if he dares to hope.
He should be #1! Come on people! Please vote for him. He has earned so much of fame, even though he had Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis! Just imagine his struggles! Please vote for him, until he reaches #1!
With such a deliberating disease, he actually shook the world. He is the number 1.
A true champion. Come on! Vote for this inspirational person.
He literally invented ideas that modern society uses. If we all did Leonardo's ideas in his time, we would all be technologically more advanced in modern society.
All the mordern day thinks are based on his inventions. He did that before of Newton, Einstein and all other
Leonardo was so much ahead of his time, it's surreal.
He was not able to listen but he invented many things like the electric bulb, telegraph and many more the owner of 1000 patents
This man discovered pi, that's all that needs to be said. But that's just the tip of the iceberg.
He was simply awesome!
He invented the elctricity. The image of benjamin franklin is on the usa's note.
The man who invented telephone.
Well, Alex, you don't appear to have a social life with all your fans
The Fastest mind ever. And possibly the most raw intelligent person ever
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.
Simply put, scientists as we define them wouldn't exist without Aristotle.
Deserves as much acknowledgement as Einstein and Rutherford. After all, he created the atomic model we still base our chemistry on to this date.
Why is bohr so low on the list, its ridiculous. He deserves top 5.
Without him, science would not be as it is.
He's the one who founded one of the key concepts of electromagnetism after he made a discovery of one of his own lab experiments. However, he couldn't explain it mathematically but only on intellectual terms about the concept. It was not until Maxwell explains the concept further mathematically. Maxwell too has faced problems computing equations that describe the behavior of electromagnetic fields. Nowadays, we call it Maxwell's Equations that consists of 4 laws.
Aryabhatta ji deserves first position, without his discoveries nothing else would have been discovered.
He gave us zero. Without that everything and everyone is zero!
He invented 0 means he invented math...mens He invented the computers...
All because he was an indian.
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. )
