Not only that, the word "greatest" is not only meaningless, it is undefined as far as criteria goes. One might as well pick a favorite color.These kind of topics are useless and there will always be missing physicist.
Not if we start a 10 year project to post every professional Physicist that has ever lived. :tongue2:These kind of topics are useless and there will always be missing physicist.
My vote is for John Bardeen, but since he is not listed I have to vote for Feynman who could have won 3 Nobels (QED, Theory of Weak Force and Helium Superfluidity). In my mind the only other physicist close in pure talent and breadth of knowledge was Lev Landau.Where's the only physicist to have won the Nobel Prize in physics twice?
