:surprised Note: Please See thread "Greatest Physicist Redux.":surprised
Oh, great! Not another one of these threads.
I'd go for Archimedes, or Zz, or maybe Emmy Noether :tongue2:
Oh but the question was settled already in [thread=115107]this thread[/thread] : she's Britney :rofl:
I did not notice this picture before :
This is a joke right ?
Naw, it looks like semiconductor physics, with just pictures of britney spears. Kind of foolish if you ask me.
No no, Britney is really a major in SC physics. She just decided to have fun instead of loosing her time in physics lab.
Hmm, this thread has certainly gone off on quite a tangent. :uhh:
Interesting how Einstein hasn't gotten any votes so far.
By the way, I totally forgot about Archimedes! If I could change the poll I would replace Rutherford with him.
Uhm... we would still miss Faraday :uhh:
I always wondered, whether Gell-Mann was more or less important than Landau... never could figure.
I was just thinking ''why isnt Faraday there" myself.
Planck and Tesla to name a couple more amiss.
People just want to look sophisticated and not vote for the same guy as all non-physicists would...
In my eyes Einstein clearly is the greatest of them!
Ah, Brian David Josephson wins my heart.
Let me had another tough choice, just a last one
Hawking or Penrose ?
Where is Fermi?
Where's the only physicist to have won the Nobel Prize in physics twice?
Even Einstein could not accomplish that!
These kind of topics are useless and there will always be missing physicist.
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.
What a lame thread. So creative!
We should rank them and then sell it to HS kids like USNEWS and World Report does.
Not if we start a 10 year project to post every professional Physicist that has ever lived. :tongue2:
But it's quite funny to even ask the question :tongue:
Actually, I was wondering who is the greatest PF member ever
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.
Do we have a Nobel prize who also is a Field medalist ?
Not that I know of. Anyone know of any?
If only I could list more than 10 options, I would include all of the physicists talked about so far!
Even if I could, I still think Newton would win though...
Separate names with a comma.
