Top Ten Most Underrated People In HistoryBruno2202 This is a list of people who don't really get the attention they should.
The Top Ten
A very smart and innovative person, but he did not remotely "invent" or "discover" electricity.
He lived during an age of incredible discoveries happening almost daily, and many of those ideas "time had come", resulting in many inventions happening separately at almost the same time.
We would have everything we have today, even if he had never lived.
Could be the greatest mind of the 20th century. He invented the single most important thing in todays world - electricity. Without it there would be no tvs, cell phones, computers etc. He also has over 700 inventions under his name and some of them were stolen from him - the radio (stolen by Marconi), the x-rays (stolen by Roentgen). - Bruno2202
A German mathematician who made groundbreaking contributions to abstract algebra and theoretical physics. Albert Einstein called her the most important women in the history of mathematics. Her work on differential invariants in the calculus of variations - Noether's theorem has been called one of the most important mathematical theorems ever proved in guiding the development of modern physics. - Bruno2202
Discovered what the sun is made of but was told not to publish her work by Henry Norris Russel. 4 years later he repeated her work, published it and was given all the credit. - Bruno2202
Actually, pretty much everyone knows who he is... - Alpha101
In 10,000 years, nobody from our time will be remembered except for him; the first human to leave the planet and walk on another world.
Co-discovered nuclear fusion, her collegues intentionally published the paper without her name. They went on to win the Nobel Prize. - Bruno2202
Discovered that sex was determined by chromosomes. She sent her work to Thomas Morgan who, in public, dismissed her and called her "just a technician". Later he published his own book on sex determination and took all the credit. - Bruno2202
Discovered the first pulsar. Her senior Anthony Hewish put himself on the paper and got all the credit and the Nobel Prize. - Bruno2202
The actual inventor of the steam engine. James Watt didn't invent it, he perfected it some 50-60 years later. - Bruno2202
I actually meant to vote for John Adams but the site obviously had other ideas. Why John Adams? He has an underrated name. Too few males are called John Adams. - Britgirl
Oh give me a BREAK... - TheMainReason
Underrated? Our calendar is based on his birth. We are now in 2016, meaning that he was born 2016 years ago. Even if we talking about something 3000 years ago we use 0 ( his birth ) as reference. How could he be underrated if we measure years and days based on him.
Not really underrated though
He died for you
An x-ray crystallographer who made significant contributions to the discovery of the structure of DNA. She didn't recieve any credit before her death and her colleagues recieved the Nobel Prize for the discovery after her death. - Bruno2202
