The fact that Tesla is not on this list is upsetting..

I agree. The lack of Marie Curie surprised me too.

Nikola Tesla.

''Right'' Brothers, lmao.

Anyways, it would have to be Isaac Newton. That guy had revolutionary ideas in a multitude of topics.

Him for sure.

Wrong brother, the answer is tesla, the man was a genius, but buraucrats tried to block and steal his work, died alone and poor, like the edger Allen Poe of science. He is basically the father of electricity as we know it today, AC voltage baby

Isaac Newton was a retard because every time he could not find an explanation for something he would always just say "God did it"

For shits and giggles aka shiggles, I will say Bill Nye "The Science Guy".

But really, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson.

I've always liked Galileo Galilei and Leonardo da Vinci.

Nikola Tesla

Giorgio Tsoukalos! :P

All jokes aside, those are all good choices and they are all brilliant in their own way, but I would have to say Galileo Galilei :)

Tesla without a doubt! Thomas edisson was a bastard :-/

I don't like Edison either. They paint such a rosy picture of him when they talk about him in school and then later you find out about stuff like Topsy the elephant (which there's video of!). It's just too creepy for me.

Was he?

He and tesla were rivals. They were both trying to generalise electricity use and supply it to the public, only they strongly disagreed about which form it should be supplied in. Edisson if I remember rightly promoted it in D.C. form (direct current) and tesla in A.C. form (alternating current) which we use today. Edisson would go out in the streets and electrocute stray dogs (and even an elephant) with A.C. current to try and turn people against tesla.
He used that among other devious methods to try and ruin his rivals reputation. He succeeded and tesla lost credit for many of his inventions. As far as I know tesla was never guilty of foul play against him.
That, in my opinion qualifies thomas edisson as a bastard :-)

D/C is impractical and impossible to use for commercial electricity delivery. It has it's uses, but it's limited. There's no competition there.

Yes, nowadays A.C. has been sensibly chosen as the standard form, but back in the days there was a large and somewhat fiery debate over the matter. Tesla did in fact invent the D.C. motor, which is quite a feat as other motors rely on the constantly changing direction of current. I'm no scientist so I couldn't adequately explain how it works, and would probably bore you in the process anyway.
Apart from that it does not, as you said, have many uses.

Well I knew about the competing of the two current thing. That does sound really fucked up though. Though in the field of science people really do not have a lot of regard for animals anyhow. So can not say it is too surprising.

Well perhaps he seems particularly bad to me as I have strong feelings against animal testing (and cruelty to them in general).
Comment Hidden (show)

Yes and I do too but the fact is all lab work and medical research is done on animals. I personally think they should do it on convicted life row prisoners. Since they cost housing a lot of money. They are automatically cleared of all debt when sent to prison and they basically do nothing for community at this point. They do more damage to community if they let them out. So why not use them as test rats apposed to all these creatures that are innocent which we breed purely for experiments.

Galileo, Marie Curie and Mendeleev are the names that came instantly to mind.

I'll say Dmitri Mendeleev is my favourite. So much of chemistry would be impossible without him.

Leonardo Da Vinci. That guy was a genius.

That's such a good answer that I'm jealous I didn't think of it.

Excellent choice. That was one I did not think of.

Seriously though, either Carl Sagan, Ada Lovelace, or Nikola Tesla at the moment.

I admire Stephan Hawkings so much. The fact that they said he was supposed to be dead because of his illness ages ago and he's still alive is incrediiiiiibleeeeeeeee! i've always thought that he's alive because he has so many things to teach us all

There is no one scientist that is the best in my mind, even the famous scientists owe some credit to others who helped them along the way, all sciences are a continuous team effort.

I like Albert Einstein because his quotes are just too awesome and inspiring... due to them his views live inside me ...
Comment Hidden (show)
Leonardo da vinci. Don't rage on me about it saying "HE WAS ONLY A PAINTER" Because I did my research on him and he was many other things. He designed building, He invented many machines, He INSPIRED the bike (with a drawing of two circles put together and connected with a few lines), Astronomer, scientist, And a whole crap load of other stuff.
He was the man back than.

I guess, Stephen Hawkings. I find his theories on Black holes to be very interesting and exciting.

Somewhere down the line a scientist had to invent the technologies that are being applied to the games you play now.
