Demonstrated existence of the electron | |

Controlled, liquid-fueled rocketry | |

His law relates the distribution of electric charge to the resulting electric field. | |

Influential German mathematician who made lasting contributions to analysis and differential geometry, some of them enabling the later development of general relativity. | |

Most widely known for observing that electric currents induce magnetic fields. He shaped post-Kantian philosophy and advances in science throughout the late 19th century. | |

Best known as the creator of set theory | |

Founding contributions in the fields of statistical mechanics and statistical thermodynamics | |

His studies of heat transfer between solids and fluids brought improvements in boiler and condenser design. | |

Described a convenient tabular presentation for binomial coefficients | |

Figurehead of the new science of genetics for his study of the inheritance of certain traits in pea plants | |

Improvements to the Newcomen steam engine were fundamental to the changes brought by the Industrial Revolution | |

Formulated the general theory of elasticity in a mathematically usable form (1821) | |

Best known as the father of fractal geometry | |

Electromagnetic Induction | |

Principle states that for an inviscid flow, an increase in the speed of the fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in pressure or a decrease in the fluid's potential energy | |

Her most noteworthy work is that on the X-ray diffraction images of DNA. | |

Approximated functions with series. | |

Preeminent rocket engineer of the 20th century | |

Developed the resonance technique for measuring the magnetic properties of atomic nuclei | |

Evolution by natural selection | |

Invented a form of symbolic logic in which 'true' or 'false' are the only two greatest possible values | |

Mathematical basis for computer | |

Author of the astronomical treatise now known as the Almagest | |

Worked with Otto Hahn in the discovery of fission | |

Proved the stability of the solar system. He also put the theory of mathematical probability on a sound footing. | |

Detected electromagnetic radiation in a wavelength range today known as x-rays | |

Best known for his theorem regarding right triangles. | |

Discovery of penicillin launched the modern era of antibiotics | |

His work included early telescopic studies elucidating the nature of the rings of Saturn and the discovery of its moon Titan, the invention of the pendulum clock and other investig | |

The idea is that the local motion of a rotating reference frame is determined by the large scale distribution of matter | |

Particularly remembered for his work on the development of the first nuclear reactor. A type of particle is named after him. | |
