  • Charles Darwin 1809-1882

    Charles Darwin    1809-1882
    Charles Darwin was born on February 12, 1809 in Shrewsbury England. A famous Biologist, he set out on a voyage on the HMS Beagle to engage in scientific research. Upon this voyage, he began studying different species in different areas of the world. (Charles, 1) While conducting this research, he came up with the Natural Selection theory in Evolutionary studies. This is the determinant of how species thrive and evolve. (Charles, 2)
  • Henri Poincare 1854-1912

    Henri Poincare        1854-1912
    Henri Poincare was born on April 29, 1854, in Nancy France. He was a French Mathematician, Physicist, Engineer, and a Philosopher of Science. While attending college at the University of Paris, he discovered new functions that were beneficial in solving different problems in the discipline of differential equations.(Henri, 1) He further went into research into the disciplines of Topology, and non-Euclidean geometry. (Henri, 1)
  • Alfred North Whitehead 1861-1947

    Alfred North Whitehead    1861-1947
    Alfred North Whitehead was born on February 15, 1861. He was an English mathematician and a philosopher. (Lowe, 1) After being home schooled for many years, he started school at Trinity College, where he found the mathematical lectures to be the most appeasing. After scoring extremely high on an honors exam, he began working at Trinity as a math professor. (Lowe, 1) He began leaning towards the theories of James Clark Maxwell, that involved electricity and magnestism. (Lowe, 2)
  • Niels Bohr 1885-1962

    Niels Bohr   1885-1962
    If you have ever taken a Physics class, then you have heard of the great works of Niels Bohr. He was born in Copenhagen in 1885. Growing up, he developed an enthusiasm for Physics. He did his undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral studies at Copenhagen University. (Palermo,1) After he graduated college, he moved to Manchester, where he worked under the great Ernest Rutherford, who gave us the description of the nucleus, and its particles within. (Niels, 1)
  • Werner Heisenberg 1901-1976

    Werner Heisenberg        1901-1976
    Werner Heisenberg was born on December 5, 1901 in Wurzburg Germany. Growing up his fascination in Physics began with the discovery of the mesotron particle, by Japanese Physicist Yukawa.(Werner, 1) After receiving his doctorate in Physics at Georg-August- Universitat, he went on to do some great research. In Physics, he won the Nobel Peace prize in 1932. It was for his work with the Uncertainty Principle that debunked Niel Bohr's work with his description of the electrons in orbits.
