Albert Einstein, the ‘Nobel Prize’ winning physicist, was one of the most significant contributors to the field of theoretical physics. His ‘Theory of Relativity’ and the ‘Law of Photoelectric Effect’ paved the way for a better understanding of quantum mechanics. Modern scientists are building on his research to find answers to their questions.
2. Marie Curie
Marie Curie has many firsts in her life. The first woman to win the ‘Nobel Prize,’ the first person and the only woman to win the ‘Nobel Prize’ twice and the only person to win it for different fields. She is not just an idol for scientists but also people in general.
Even today, Abraham Lincoln continues to top polls as America's greatest president and is remembered as the country's martyr hero.
