• 10 Most Popular Scientists of All-Time and Their Contributions to our World

    Science, technology, and innovations continue to make our lives easier. We owe it to those that took the time to know more about how things work and what things can work and fit into our needs. Science continues to provide us with knowledge and understanding of the natural world. Technology is a result of manipulating science and using it to innovate.

    Primitive men invented the first basic tools for hunting and these inventions contributed to the human evolution of civilization. Being born in the 20th or 21st centuries, it is hard to imagine a life without all the tools and innovations that we have now. Let us take a look at 10 popular scientists and what they gave us:

    Charles Darwin (1809- 1882) – was a British naturalist who formulated the theory of evolution. Through research, he proved that plants and animals evolve in an orderly manner and continue to change, even today.

    Albert Einstein (1879-1955) – was born in Germany but is known as a physicist from the United States. He is known for his theories on relativity and premises on light’s particle nature.

    Alexander Graham Bell (1847–1922) – he is known as the greatest innovator of all time. He invented the first practical telephone, optical communications, hydrofoils, metal detector, and aeronautics.

    Aristotle (384-322 BC) – Aristotle left this world with his philosophy that followed a comprehensive system of ideas about human nature and the reality we live in. His system of ideas creates logic and science, politics and metaphysics, music, poetry, theatre, and much more.

    Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) – was a French philosopher and scientist, and one the most influential mathematicians of all time. One of his contributions is his study on the barometer and the equilibrium of fluids. He also left mathematical theories that most of his contemporaries worked on after he passed away.

    Isaac Newton (1642-1727) – was an English mathematical and physicist who invented calculus, formulated the three laws of motion, and the universal theory of gravitation.

    Wilbur and Orville Wright (1867-1912;1871-1948) – The Wright brothers invented the first ever fully powered, heavier-than-air flying machine – the airplane.

    Benjamin Franklin (1785 – 1788) – he was one of the significant Founding Fathers of the United States, scientist, inventor, and civic activist. As a scientist, he studied electricity and discovered the principles of charge conservation. He also contributed to meteorology by studying wind behaviors, and heat conductivity.

    Alexander Fleming (1881 – 1955) – was a Scottish biologist who discovered penicillin, an antibacterial drug that is still widely used today. His other groundbreaking works include immunology, bacteriology, and chemotherapy.

    There are hundreds of scientists that contributed to our world and without them the world would never be what it is today. We would not be living with all the innovations and advancements that we have today.
