Our world had made many scientist some of them contribute well for this society and some very rare scientists whose contribution for this world changed our life's completely they invented or explain some of the best things in the world without their contribution we cannot imagine our world or this modern day they are some of the greatest talent our world has ever been.In this list we are going to show you the top 10 greatest scientist and famous scientists of all time.

10. James Clerk Maxwell

James Clerk Maxwell

James Clerk Maxwell was a Scottish mathematical physics scientist.His research in electricity and kinetics, laid foundation for quantum physics.He was best known for his concepts of electricity, magnetism and optics through a set of equation, now known as the Maxwell equations.He was also one of the founding father of special relativity and quantum mechanics. He was also known for presenting the first durable colour photograph in 1861.Many physicists regard Maxwell as the 19th-century scientist having the greatest influence on 20th-century physics.

9. Louis Pasteur

Louis Pasteur

Louis Pasteur is one of the biggest contributor in the medical science he was French chemist and microbiologist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation. He first introduced the germ theory of diseases.He developed many cures for very severe diseases such as rabies, anthrax and other infectious diseases at that time.He was also known for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization.

8. Archimedes


Archimedes was considered as one of the greatest mathematician ever he was a mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer he is regarded as one of the leading scientists in classical antiquity.He was also known for his deriving an accurate approximation of pi and he was the first founding the hydrostatics and statics by applying mathematics to physical phenomena.He designed many machines like screw pump, compound pulleys, and defensive war machines.

7. Michael Faraday

Michael Faraday

Michael Faraday was an English scientist and widely known for his discoveries of electromagnetic inductions and rotations, field theory, dia-magnetization and the magneto-optical effect. He invented the electric motor and Faraday’s ring.Despite having not much formal education he invented many things.As a chemist, Faraday discovered benzene and the SI unit of capacitance is named in his honour the farad.All Faraday’s discoveries are considered one of the greatest discoveries of all time.

6. Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla was a considered one of the most influential scientist of all time.He was Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer and physicist.He was best known for his work on modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. The General Conference on Weights and Measures named the SI unit of magnetic flux density the tesla in his honor.First hydro electricity plant in Niagara falls, experiments with cryogenic engineering, transistors, radio wave recorder from outer space were all built by Tesla.He was a true genius.

5. Galileo Galilei

Galileo Galilei

Galileo Galilei was one of the best multi talented scientist he was an Italian astronomer, physicist, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician.Galileo is called as the father of modern science because of his discoveries in astronomy and physics.He chose his career in science and mathematics and he made the first telescope to observe stars and planets.Galileo also proposed the theory and proved that the earth revolved around the sun.He also stated first two laws of motion and also in Astronomy.

4. Thomas Edison

Thomas Edison

Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman.He is one the greatest scientist and business man of all time.He was both scientist and inventor, Edison patented a total of 1,093 inventions in his life. Most of his inventions are batteries, phonographs, cement, mining, telegraphs, lights and powers.He is best known for his works on phonograph and the practical electric bulb that soon caught global attention.His invention of carbon telephone transmitter developed the carbon microphone which was used in the telephoned till 1980.

3. Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin was an English naturalist and geologist he developed the theory of evolution against a backdrop of disbelief and scepticism.Darwin stated that human beings have evolved through many changes and survival of the fittest was in important factor in the development of animal world.Darwin has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history and was honoured by burial in Westminster Abbey.Darwin's work established evolutionary descent with modification as the dominant scientific explanation of diversification in nature.

2. Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton was born in Woolsthrope, England, Sir Issac Newton is best known for his law on gravitation and he was an english physicist and mathematician and considered as one of the most influential scientists of all time and he is one of the scientist who is responsible for the evolution of modern physics.Newton proposed the theory of gravity and gravitation by inventing calculus.He also explained the theory on tides which occurred due to the gravitation pull from the sun, moon and earth. Newton’s contribution to science is wide and unparalleled. His field of work such as the laws of motion is still being followed in schools and colleges as the basis of scientific.

1. Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein is considered as the greatest scientist of all time.Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist. He developed the general theory of relativity which is one of the best theory on physics of all time time.Einstein's is also derived a mass–energy equivalence formula which is widely considered as the most famous equation of all time.He honoured with Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for the value that he given in the subject of physics.Einstein published more than 300 scientific papers along with over 150 non-scientific works.Einstein's intellectual achievements and originality have made the word "Einstein" synonymous with "genius".
