10 Scientists That Changed The World
In today’s day and age there are so many things that would not have been possible without the contributions of scientists to add more knowledge for the coming generations and we can see it in the form of progress that is being made in almost every field of life to benefit from it. Had it not been for the groundbreaking discoveries and inventions by these scientists, we quite possibly would have been stuck in the Stone Age. Here is a list of 10 Scientists That Changed The World.
10. Charles Darwin

8. Marie Curie
Marie Curie was a Polish physicist and a chemist who contributed a lot in the field of radioactivity. So much so that she is considered a pioneer and is the only scientist who has been awarded Nobel Prize in two different spheres of Science. She was also the very first female professor that University of Paris had recruited.
7. Galileo Galilei
Italian astronomer and physicist, Galileo was one of the best physicist of all time and is regarded as “Father of Science” because of his contributions in the field of physics and astronomy. His improvement includes the improvement of the telescope which led to astronomical observations.

Einstein was a German physicist who is known for his famous theory of relativity and most specifically mass energy equivalence the equation being, E=mc2.
1 Isaac Newton
Isaac Newton was one of the greatest and the most influential scientists of all time, he made contributions in several fields of science. His contributions include the discovery of force of Gravity, his three famous laws of motion and even the motions of astronomical bodies in space and a lot more.
