Doctor, Doctor, Doctor, make me well


Aristotle was born in Stagira in 384 BC. At the age of 18 he admitted in to the young Greek aristocracy run by Plato, another Great Greek philosopher, and Aristotle became the most favorite student of Plato. Mainly he spent most of his life researching the natural science and he did the researches without making reference to the Mathematics. He contributed in physics, poetry, zoology, logic, rhetoric, politics, government, ethics, and biology. He died in 322 BC.

Isaac Newton was an English alchemist, mathematician, scientist and philosopher, who described universal gravitation and, via his classical mechanics.  Newton was the first to demonstrate that natural laws govern earthly motion and celestial motion. H’s associated with the scientific and the advancement of heliocentrism. H’s credited with being the first to demonstrate that white light is a composite, or mixture, of the other colors.

Annie Jump Cannon, an American astronomer, from 1863-1941. Cannon classified over 500,000 stars and published many papers on astronomy. She made a bibliography of variable stars that includes about 200,000 references. In 1896, she discovered a "dwarf nova" known as SS Cygni. Each year the American Association of University Women presents an Annie J. Cannon award for outstanding work in astronomy.

Zhang Heng was born in China in the year 78 and lived to the year 139. He was a mathematician, astronomer, and geographer. He constructed the first rotating celestial globe in China. He also invented the first seismoscope. It was the shape of a cylinder with eight dragon heads at the top and each one had a ball in its mouth. At the bottom there was eight frogs. Each frog was directly under a dragon's head. When an earthquake happened, a ball fell out of a dragon's mouth into a frog's mouth, making a noise.

Rosalind Franklin was one of the scientists that helped to understand the molecular structure of DNA.  She, along with a small group of scientists, took X-ray photos of DNA, and also recorded data that Watson and Crick later said was the basis of their model for their first DNA molecule.  Franklin also assisted in the first research for the polio vaccine. She faced a lot of sexism, even after her death.  She was acknowledged rather patronizingly as a scientist, yet she continued with her research and made great contributions to the world of science.

Sir Isaac Newton was born on the year 1642 and died on 1727. Isaac Newton was born on the year Galileo died. Newton was the greatest English mathematician of his generation. He was a mathematician and physicist. He went to Trinity College. Newton was the one that came up with the three laws of motion. Newton’s work on optics and gravitation make him one of the greatest scientists that the world knows.

Period 7

Albert Einstein. Was born in Germany and is one of the most well known scientists of all time.
He is known for his therios of relativety.He recieved the Nobel prize in physics for his dicovery of the law photoelectric effect.
Albert Einstein contributed to science mainly in physics, but also other parts as well.
KayLee Roemmich, Period 6
Thomas Edison, born February 11th, 1847, was the seventh and last child to the Edison Family. He was born in Milan, Ohio and was homeschooled by his mother for most of his education. Thomas is known as a scientist, businessman, and inventor. He registered for over 1,000 patents for new inventions over a lifetime. He invented the phonograph, telecommunications, and the light bulb. He and his first wife had three children. After she died, he and his second wife also had three children. Thomas Edison died October 18th, 1931 from complications due to diabetes. 


Albert Einstein was born in ulm Germany, six weeks later the family moved to Munich, where he later on began his schooling at the Luitpold Gymnasium. it was said that einstein always had a clear view of the problems of physics and always wanted to solve them. Albert died on april 18 1955.

 This is BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY!!! Well here is a brief history of his life. Bill was born on November 27, 1955. Bill was not only a great scientest but also a great comedian. Now you may ask what did this scientest discover or what did he create. Well Bill dicovered a way to make science fun! he didnt only have a great show that went on for a stunning 4 years and 11 months, but also was a engineer at Boeing! Bill might have not dicovered a new melcular power thing, but he made science fun for kids that get bored easily.

Charles Darwin
February 12. 1809 - April 19. 1882
Charles was known for his theory of evolution. His theories were on the origin of species by natural selection, and descent of man. At age 16 he
was sent to study at the University of Edinburgh. Soon following Darwin's  father sent him to the University of cambridge to study divinity. After leaving Cambridge he began on his journey to the Canary Islands in 1831, traveling to the northern parts of South America. After traveling around the continents he soon realized that species would vary or different than those on opposite countries. Such as Argentina's ostiches were larget then Africa's, or that birds and tortoises off the Galapagos island were similar to those near by. His last years he no longer speculated on evolution but concentrated on botanical, and experienced the best health in his life from his years at Cambridge University. His theory was not accepted until after he had died, by later developements in genetics, and molecular biology.

Gregor Johann Mendel (July 20, 1822 – January 6, 1884)

He was an Augustinian priest and a scientist, He gained fame
after death as the figurehead of the science of genetics for his
study of inheriting certain traits in pea plants. Mendel showed
that the inheritance of these traits have to follow certain laws
which were named after him. Mendel's work was not recognized
until the turn of the 20th century. The discovery of these laws
is the key to the study of genetics today.

 Giovanni Aldini: The Corpse Electrocutioner

Aldini was the nephew of Luigi Galvani. His uncle discovered the concept of  galvanism, Giovanni took his experiments a little bit...further.

In front of a live audience he conducted a experiment on a hung murderer (he deserved it). He applied conducting rods to the dead mans rectum and his arm began to punch the air, and his legs began to kick and flinch. Rod applied to the poor dead guys face made it twitch. The left eye popped open! Every one thought that guy came back to life! They said if he did they would have to hang him again! Many people present for this little “experiment” were friggen afraid of this totally mad scientist...duh! One poor old man who was there, apparently went home and died cause he was scared outa his mind!! I would be too......

 Muriel Smith 5th

 Archimedes born in Syracuse (c. 287 BC – c. 212 BC) one of the most important Greek mathematicians ever known to man. Much more advanced than the people of his time plain out and simple, he was a genius. You can thank him for calculus, geometry, and algebra. He laid out the founding blocks to make this possible. He was recognized by everybody, and was left alone, with his math tools. He later died in c. 212 BC by a Roman soldier that commanded him to meet General Marcellus but he refused, saying he had to finish his work. This infuriated the Roman soldier, who then stabbed him with a sword.

Niels Bohr

Niels Bohr made great contributions in the science world.  He was a Danish physicist that taught us a lot about quantum mechanics and atomic structure.  Bohr became a professor at the University of Copenhagen in 1916.  In 1922 Bohr received the Nobel Prize for physics.    He returned to Copenhagen after working on the Manhattan project.  Niels Bohr died in Copenhagen in 1962. 

Phoebus Levene was a Russian-American biochemist, who dated all the way back from the 1870's. He was the first one to realize that nucleic acids came in two different forms! One form, was DNA and they other was RNA,based on something called ribose and deoxyribose. He discovered that DNA contained a bunch of things! Such as adenine, thymine, guanine, cytosine, and a few others. He decided that these components would link together and be called nucleotides. Later on, he made a conclusion that the structure of DNA was based on something named "tetranucleotide". In the rest of his life, he still had good ideas but, this is what he's mostly known for. (:
