Famous Scientists


Last Updated . Click "Updates" above to see the latest.

There are many great scientists out there, who have discovered so many great things, so I have made a set of some of our most famous and well known.

First, we have Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519), a famous scientist as well as a famous painter. He painted The Mona Lisa, and created many inventions, some of which worked, and some which didn't. My scene, features Leonardo, with a workbench behind him, that has a paintbrush and plans for a flying machine. Leonardo is seen with an easel painting a beautiful ship.

Next, we have Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727), sitting under the apple tree. The myth goes that an apple fell on Isaac's head, that made him have an "Eureka!" moment at which he discovered gravity. That is not quite what happened, but he did discover gravity. He also came up with the three basic laws of physics, and did experiments with a prism. My scene features him under the apple tree holding his prism.

Now we have Ben Franklin (1706-1790), who is best known for getting zapped by lightning with a key on a kite. The kite was not actually struck by lightning, but it drew negative charges from the storm clouds. That experiment led to the knowledge of positive/negative eletricity, and the invention of the lightning rod. I wanted the key in the model to be in the kite string, but I couldn't do that with Ldd. His model shows his kite getting struck by lightning well he stands on the ground in the storm. Fun Fact: Benjamin Franklin wanted the national bird of America to be the turkey.

Thomas Edison (1847-1931) is best known for inventing the lightbulb. Actually, he wasn't the first one to. Mant people before him came up with different lightbulbs, it's just Edison came up with the most practical type. Edison is also famous for inventing the phonograph, the electric locomotive, electric pen and copying system, plus he held more than 1,000 patents (So don't you think he should be smiling in all those pictures of him?). He also improved many other inventions such as the telephone and the stock ticker (And I guess the lighbulb too). I built a workshop where he could have made his lightbulb, and on the tables behind him show many other inventions and experiments.

Lastly we have Albert Einstein (1879-1955) who had an IQ of 160. Einstein figured out many things, and is best known for his theory of relativity and the equation E=MC2. Einstein's research spanned from quantum mechanics to theories about gravity and motion (Take that, Isaac Newton!). Unsurprisingly, Einstein also won the Nobel Prize. I have featured him in his office, with his desk covered in papers and "E=MC2" written on the chalkboard behind him.

So there you have it, five famous scientists, and you know all about them too. Please support this project so that it may reach 10k and maybe become a real set. If you have any ideas on how I could make this better, please share your thoughts in the comments. If there is a fact I got wrong, please tell me.
