Archimedes was a mathematician, physicist, engineer, astronomer, and philosopher. In theoretical mechanics, Archimedes is responsible for fundamental theorems concerning the centers of gravity of plane figures and solids, and he is famous for his theorem on the weight of a body immersed in a liquid, called Archimedes’ Principle.

Marie Curie was a Polish physicist and chemist who did ground-breaking research about radioactivity. She was the first woman to have won the Nobel Prize and the first person to have won the Nobel Prize twice, for developing the theory of radioactivity, and for discovering new elements polonium and radium.

Katherine Johnson, an African American woman, worked as a mathematician who worked at NASA. She was responsible for calculating orbital mechanics which were critical for first and later US crewed spaceflights. Known as the "human calculator" she was a master at complex manual calculations and pioneered the use of computers for this task.

Cesar Milstein was an Argentine biochemist researching in the field of antibodies. In 1984 he was a co-winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the production of monoclonal antibodies. His discovery allowed mass creation of these antibodies to allow for diagnosis and treatment of many diseases including some cancers.

Thomas Edison was an inventor and businessman. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, motion picture camera, and electric light bulb. He applied the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention and is often credited with creating the first industrial research laboratory.

Watch Edison


Ellen Ochoa is an engineer, veteran NASA astronaut, and former Johnson Space Center Director. She was the first Hispanic woman to go to space. As a pioneer of spacecraft technology, Ochoa led a research group working primarily on optical systems for automated space exploration. Ochoa is a co-inventor on three patents for optical systems.
