77 Ivan Koloff
78 Mildred Dresselhaus

You probably haven't heard of her, but she was responsible for the field of carbon nanotube research and low dimensional thermoelectrics before either were even fields of research, and much of her work has been echoed in the developments of super-efficient solar panels and space elevators. She was also a highly inspirational figure for women in science, constantly defying many double standards in the culture of science. Let's not forget our Queen of Carbon Science, who tragically passed in February this year. - PositronWildhawk
