All of these people had great minds, and they helped to greater the scientific world with their talents. The book says that Einstein’s discovery was “…one of the major intellectual achievements of all time (80).” He along with all of the other scientists used their minds to do what others could not. They “dreamed” about how the universe works; what was really possible and what was not. All of their minds were great, but unlike most they could stretch their knowledge to make ground breaking discoveries like they did. These people are all very important to us because of what they did with their intelligence.
In conclusion, Kepler played a huge role in the Scientific Revolution with his many genius discoveries and major accomplishments due to his early developed love for science. His contributions to science and mathematics played a big role in the development of science. Without his genius it could have taken years longer to discover some of the things he did. Therefore, Johannes Kepler is one of the most important astronomers of the Scientific Revolution.

Additionally, this book tackles an extremely difficult topic that is considered to be one of the most complex subjects in higher learning. Feynman is undaunted by this, he takes the known principles of physics and presents them in a new light, and should be praised for his ability to demonstrate such a complicated subject to so many people in such a way that even the common man can grasp these basic principles of physics. Thus, Richard Feynman’s book Six Easy Pieces is more than worthy of achieving high literary merit.
Einstein also won a Nobel prizes for succeeding physicists and he began to work towards his ultimate dream, “a theory of everything” (Michio par.48). While Einstein did not live to see his dream through, leading physicists all over the world work tirelessly toward his dream of a theory of everything. In looking at Einstein’s life, one can infer that he fits definitively into the category of INTP “the thinker” in MBTI. His curiosity and inquisitive mind has led mankind to a higher understanding of the universe and the surroundings. His thoughts and theories have given people a microscopic view of atoms as well as a macroscopic view of the universe.
Through these investigations, the physicist and non-physicist alike will gain a sense of the extraordinary mind that this "half genius, half buffoon" exercised daily--for his love of physics, and for his love of life (Dyson 1989, p. 34).

In summary, Sir Isaac Newton was a brilliant man who changed how we view the world of science and mathematics today. Despite the rough beginning of his life and mental distractions faced, Newton managed to invent, discover and theorise so much. His hypothesists guided other mathematicians and physicists to discover further things in the science world. He was even and influence on Einstein, another great scientist, it was proven that Einstein kept a picture of Newton on his study wall. Therefore, to honour him for his accomplishments, society agreed to name a few terms in science and math after him such as newtons which are the units for force, and in math, the Principal Newton's method and even knighted by a Queen of his time.
This describes the algebraic expansion of powers of a binomial (Mastin). These contributions to math would later help scientists cerate vehicles to launch us into space. Newton’s discoveries were able to aid Einstein in his development of the Theory of Relativity and Nuclear Fission (Tega). Newton’s life was full of amazing discoveries and contributions. He is definitely one of the greatest scientist and mathematicians to ever live.
Einstein will no doubt go down in history as a great theoretical physicist. His work is compared in importance to that of scientists such as Galileo Galilei, Nicolas Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, and Isaac Newton. Some would even say that his contributions to science were greater. However, it is impossible to paint a complete picture of Einstein without examining his life, his religion, and his personality. His science was his life, and his religion gave him insights as to how to approach science.
Many scholars, researchers, and scientist claim that the greatest discovery in mankind’s history was actually made by Professor Albert Einstein and is called the “Theory of Relativity.” The reason they say this is that by being able to explain and understand how everything relates to everything else is the key to advancing or evolving our knowledge about everything. In other words if we know how a starfish relates to a star, in theory we can know or cause to be known everything in-between. So the very evolution of knowledge is at stake, never mind the methodology that is used. An even more important aspect of relativity is related to “world view.” There is no question that the Western view of an event often differs greatly from say an indigenous or animistic orientation. Whereas a logical person wants a scientific explanation for an event, a shamanic one wants the “reasons,” not the proof.
It explains the world around us in every form imaginable. The study of physics is a fundamental science that helps the advancing knowledge of the natural world, technology and aids in the other sciences and in our economy. Without the field of physics, the world today would be a complete mystery, everything would be different because of the significance physics has on our life as individuals and as a society. In the natural world, physicists find new discoveries constantly. Some of these discoveries include the study of motion and forces.
