1. Aristotle

Aristotle is well known as the greatest theorist of his time. He had wide knowledge regarding different discipline something that has been managed only by a few scientists. His contribution ranges from physics, zoology, biology, politics, principles and logic amongst others. Contributions made by Aristotle can still be felt in the present age despite having lived hundreds of years ago.

2. Sir Isaac Newton

Probably considered as one of the greatest scientist of his time. Just like Aristotle, Isaac Newton was well versed in different subject areas such as mathematics, physics and natural philosophy amongst others. Isaac Newton is best known for his payment in attempting and managing to explain gravitational law as well as the three laws of motion. Nothing in the previous life of this great man of science suggested that he would be one of the celebrated scientists but managed to overcome all the barriers before him to excel.

3. Galileo Galilei

Up-to-date, Galileo Galilei is still considered as having made the greatest payment to science. Despite having been persecuted by the church for what he believed in, that did not deter him from making discoveries that are still being used in the present age. Not only was he a physicist but also an astronomer as well as a philosopher. His contributions to science include creation of telescope and first two laws of motion.

4. Charles Robert Darwin

Coming in at number four is Charles Darwin even though there are those who dispute to him having been a scientist in the first place. His contributions major on origin of man. He is also known to have traveled extensively around the world so as to prove his theories.

5. Albert Einstein

Looking at the past of Albert Einstein nobody would not have thought that a boy who could not talk till he attain the age of three and had to weight till he was eight years of age to read could be one of the greatest scientists of all time. In spite of all the hurdles that faced him, he managed to win noble peace prize for the contributions he made in physics.

6. Thomas Edison

No other scientist has managed to have under their belts over 1000 patents for innovations made as Thomas Edison. Somehow, just like Einstein, Thomas had knowledge challenges. His innovations include the phonograph as well as the electric bulb.

7. Alessandro Giuseppe Antonio Anastasio Volta

An Italian, Volta made his contribution as a scientist by adding to the growth of the electric battery. The unit for measuring electric unit- Volt is named after him as an honor for his contributions.

8. Stephen Hawking

After Albert Einstein passed on, nobody really thought that the age of scientist had passed, but adding to the number of greatest scientists who ever lived in the twentieth century is Stephen Hawking. He is well famous for the big bang theory as well as the black hole theory. In addition, he has also taught at the University of Cambridge as a professor of mathematics.

9. Louis Pasteur

Louis is best known for the contributions he has made in the medical field. The germ theory was first introduced by Louis and has continued to be applied in the study of microbiology.

10. Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose

Jagadish is well renowned for the contribution to the invention of radio and microwave. Being the first Bengali scientist, he has made several contributions to science. The above list only tries to mention some of the best scientist of all times and does not mean that other scientist not mentioned above have not in any way made contributions in their respective fields. As the world and technology advances, contributions are still being made on how to make present electric devices more efficient and affordable.
