Edison was known world-wide as the wizard of Menlo Park, The Father of the electric age, and the greatest inventor to ever live. Also that when WWII broke out, he was asked to invent defencive weapons for submarines, and war ships. He also innovated things by using rubber, concrete, and ethanol. In 1887, Edison opened the first building committed only to research and development in New Jersey.
When the important discovery of the famous Laws of Gravity and Laws of Motion, known as the laws that govern us, were discovered by Newton, his ideas brought to the world changed the way everyone saw the world with the new discoveries of laws of motion gravity, laws of motion, calculus, the way planets work, the discovery of how rainbows are created, all these innovations set the base for present day science and math. First, Newton’s participation as a leader in the Scientific Revolution that took place from took place from 1550-1700 (Hatch, Robert A., Prof.)really impacted others as well. During this time many scientists and mathematicians sought clear answers to the questions that were brought up. Newton, along with other scientists discovered many ideas and formulas
Arthur Holmes was an extremely influential geologist of the 20th century. He made many contributions to the world of geology, such as depicting the Earth’s age and analyzing why the continents drift. He greatly influenced modern science and is still very important today. Arthur Holmes was born January 14, 1890 in Gateshead, United Kingdom, his parents were James Holmes and Sarah Hargraves. One of his influences throughout his life was Robert Strutt, 4th Baron Rayleigh, a physicist who discovered active nitrogen.
Napoleon Bonaparte, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, were indeed three of the most powerful leaders in the history who had left lots of impacts behind, either good or bad. These men were not only each triumphant in their time periods and in their countries, but also the people who have shaped the world today. Out of these three leaders, Napoleon had the greatest impact; more specifically, he has fundamentally influenced the modern Europe the most by establishing nationalism, realizing the importance of intellectual development, and by exercising his Code Napoleon.

Being a descendant of the Trojan Prince, Aeneas, he grew up to be full of himself (Nice). Though Caesar was egotistical, he was the greatest military commander in European history because his military IQ was astounding, he cared for and fought beside his men, and he also expanded the Roman Empire to its greatest lengths.
Isaac Newton was known to be a great English scientist and mathematician. With his involvement in the science and mathematics field he was able to help us on future problems. with his new ideas we were able to improve in knowledge. Isaac Newton was born on December 25, 1642 in Woolsthorpe England and died on March 20, 1727 in Kensington, England. He was born a premature infant so small and sickly that no one thought he would survive(Isaac Newton).
Introduction The Egyptian civilization was the most successful ancient civilization. They were the most successful because they built buildings that withstood the forces of nature for thousands of years without using machines or modern day technology. The second reason that they were the most successful is that they found a way to preserve bodies in pyramids for thousands of years and were even able to preserve finger nails and hair. The final reason why the Egyptians were the most successful is that they had great inventions that have influenced many of our inventions today.

The more detail and time put into them the more the price went up so the only people that owned these were the wealthy and upperclassmen and they were often for show and wall decorations. One of the most famous artists and inventors of this time was Leonardo Da Vinci. Among some of his inventions were a giant crossbow, a multibarred cannon to increase the rate of fire, and a scythed chariot. He was way ahead of his time with some of his drawings including flying machines that could be used in battle and some weapons that could shoot them down.

Next, if the marathon battle never happened, the Persians would not come back ten years later for revenge and the greeks would not lure them.
We consider Benjamin Franklin to be one of the most influential heroes of his time. Franklin is a hero due to his groundbreaking inventions. During the time he was alive, he produced multiple ingenious inventions that helped combat problems in the 13 colonies. His Franklin Stove brought cheap warmth to many households, and his lightning rod kept many houses from becoming blazing infernos. Additionally, he found the connection between lightning and electricity, which led to all sorts of new discoveries.
