Favorite Scientist Can't Post

Lately I have been reading a lot about science. It's always been one of my favorite school subjects and I especially like learning about physics and other discoveries that might be possible in the future. Newton is number one for me because of all his (brilliant) explanations of the laws of physics. Recently I've been reading a book by Michio Kaku called Physics Of The Future and I'm loving it. He portrays things in such an amazing way and does great being both technical and perfectly comprehensible.
So, who is your favorite scientist and why? Smile I'm only able to list some of the more popular scientists so I'm sorry if I have overlooked anyone! Crazy

Random facts about scientists (just for fun):

1.) Newton was elected as a Member of Parliament in 1689 and served for exactly one year. During that time, he said one and only one sentence during the lengthy proceedings: he asked a nearby usher to close an open, drafty window.

2.) Einstein's interest in science went back to age five when he sat sick in bed and his father showed him a compass.

3.) Niels Bohr was a soccer player.

4.) James Maxwell is attributed with creating the first true color photograph.

5.) Galileo was the first person to find that Jupiter has four moons.

6.) Ernst Haeckel lived to be 85 years, 5 months and 24 days old

7.) Leonardo da Vinci was a vegetarian

8.) Plato studied under Socrates. Later, Plato was the teacher of Aristotle.

9.) Marie Curie was the first women to win that the Nobel Prize.

10.) William Harvey, the first person to correctly explain the process of blood circulation died of a stroke at age 79.

11.)
Leonardo Da Vinci spent twelve years painting the Mona Lisa's lips.

12.) Edward O. Wilson began by studying how ants communicate

13.) NASA’s 2009 Kepler Mission was named after Johannes Kepler for his key role and contributions to astronomy.
