Alright, alright, I have an idea. Instead of using the regular poll, you can vote for anyone you want, and I will add it to this post by editing it. That way, you can vote for whoever you want, with no limit to the options. Just post the name of who you're voting for after this post. All votes before this post will be discredited, so if you already voted, you need to vote again.
Here's the criteria:
-The physicist's contribution to physics must have been, in your opinion, the most important and the one which another person would have been least likely to discover had the physicist never existed.
The Current Vote Status:
(no one so far)

'If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.'
The above quote by Isaac Newton pretty much encompass my views on it. To clarify, I am not voting for anyone.

I vote for Newton's shoulders. Say, that was meant as a flip remark, but it's actually quite deep. Yes, Newton's shoulders. :approve:

I'm taking off all of the votes so far and adding 2 new criteria:
a) The person you're voting for must be a person, and
b) You must identify their contribution to physics.

You seriously still dont get the point?

I vote for Homer Simpson for discovering the flying rock. His quick action lead to numerous collaborations between geologist and physicist to explain the phenomenon.

I vote for an ironic and unexpected noun in place of an actual physicist.
