Sir Isaac Newton, of course! He was the first to use an Apple for his research.

Too many to reply, is there a course in science history? Who to include who to leave out.

Gerhard Ertl. His PEEM videos are beautiful. His Noble lecture is here: http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/chemistry/laureates/2007/ertl_lecture.pdf

I saw him talk once. He does good science.

Newton was ok, but some of his work was quite derivative.
Einstein was relatively interesting.

I'm partial to Copernicus. Nobody could say that guy was self-centered.

Erwin Schrödinger of course, or maybe not, as the case may be.

I find Tesla's work to be electrifyingly hair-raising.

I would also say Tesla. Very underrated.

While I gravitate towards the too many to choose from realm, Turing is on my shortlist.

This guy was Lamarckably close to the truth, but got some key details wrong.

Today my favorite scientist is Werner Heisenberg, the developer of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.

Have a Great Day!

It may or may not be in the closet. You'll have to look in order to find out.

I would have always been in favour of Heisenberg.... but now I have become a little uncertain about it
Newton has a certain "gravitas" but then again Einstein has relative merits...
I circled around Copernicus for a bit but then thought Tesla had some "electricity" to him.
Ockham was sharp, but Schrödinger keeps waving at me from the side lines...
Hawking of course is the "Einstein" of our day... but I can't think of a gag that works for him...
I guess it is just so hard to choose - every really great scientist admits to standing on the shoulders of those who came before
Perhaps I should put forward Priestley - who as it happens spent some time in my home town, though perhaps his religious and political views may have made him more of the "renaissance man" than "great scientist"
Go science geeks go...
