The biggest discoveries... the most inquiring minds... the 40 most inspiring super scientists of all time are here! Learn how these scientists shaped the world in this fact-packed book from the 40 Inspiring Icons series.

From Galileo Galilei's terrific telescope discoveries, to Louis Pasteur's victorious vaccinations, to Ada Lovelace's cracking computer codes, discover how each of these scientists spent their lives asking questions and making leaps and bounds in the world of science and technology. Beginning with the Ancient Greek philosopher Thales, who discovered geometry and astronomy, right up to the modern astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, who has popularised complex scientific theories through the use of simple language, these are the 40 super scientists to be learned about by all:

Thales; Pythagoras; Aristotle; Euclid; Archimedes; Zhang Heng; Hypatia of Alexandria; Brahmagupta; Avicenna; Alhazen; Roger Bacon; Nicolaus Copernicus; Galileo Galilei; Johannes Kepler; Isaac Newton; William Harvey; Rene Descartes; Antoine Lavoisier; Mary Anning; Michael Faraday; James Clerk Maxwell; Charles Darwin; Gregor Mendel; Louis Pasteur; Dmitri Ivanovich Medeleev; Ada Lovelace; David Hilbert; Marie Curie; Ernest Rutherford; Albert Einstein; Niels Bohr; Alfred Wegener; Alan Turing; Rosalind Franklin; HGP and the Human Genome; Vera Rubin; Francoise Barre-Sinoussi; Tim Berners-Lee; Stephen Hawking; Neil Degrasse Tyson.

Each spread presents a single scientist, highlighting key facts about their life, the scientific advances they made, the applications for their discoveries and the surrounding historical and social context, along with a fun, illustrated depiction of them that calls out elements of their life and the observational instruments they used.

Each is a pioneer of their age, but which scientist do you think is truly out of this world?

Each book in the 40 Inspiring Icons series introduces readers to a fascinating non-fiction subject through its 40 most famous people or groups. Explore these other great topics through their most interesting icons: People of Peace, Greek Gods and Heroes, Soccer Stars, Fantastic Footballers, Music Legends and Black Music Greats.
