    8. Vesalius

    11. Galileo ("It turns anyway") which he muttered after being forced to recant the motion of the earth by the Church.

    Please post an updated list with the ones correctly answered marked so we aren't required to troll the thread to find the unanswered ones. Maybe just edit your first post.

    Why does it always seem that #6 and #7 are among the easier ones ?

    #6 ) Mona Lisa, of course. Surely there are more than a couple here who've at least read the Da Vinci Code ? :confused:

    #7 ) Mercator - though I didn't know his nationality. But I don't expect too many people here to have spent more time reading atlases than I :redface:

    #5 ) There have been a couple of guesses for Huygen's, which I think could be right. If not, my next best guess would be Cassini.

    #14) Instead of guessing the answer to this, let me roughly quote Pauli, who, in a most uncharacteristic moment said something like : "I should have never chosen to do physics...it's too hard for me."

    To put this quote in perspective, it is most unlike anything Pauli would be expected to say. For instance, when Weisskopf (then Pauli's post-doc) went to Pauli feeling preety lousy that one of his calculations was shown to have a mistake, and said "Pauli, I have to give up physics ! It's terrible !", Pauli replied, " Oh no. Don't worry. There are many people who make mistakes in papers. I - never."

    Going back a little to the beginning of this relationship (between Pauli and Wesskopf) : when Weisskopf first joined Pauli as his assistant, Pauli explained, quite baldly to him, that Bethe had been his first choice, but couldn't have him, so he settled for Weisskopf. Having welcomed Weisskopf thusly, he gave him his first problem : to calculate the electron's self-energy using Dirac's method for canceling the vacuum polarization effects (which Pauli ridiculed from the day Dirac first proposed it). About ten days later, Pauli asked for the results, and Weisskopf showed them to him. Hardly glancing at the calculations, Pauli said, "I should have taken Bethe."

    Ummm...sorry for that digression. I got carried away ! :redface:

    #3 ) Wild guess, but I'll tryBeethoven (refering to Bach). Beethoven's admiration for Bach is quite well-known and can be summarized in this approximately translated quote : "He is not a stream/river/brook, he is an ocean." The German word for brook or stream, is 'Bach'. ( I always confuse Beethoven with Mozart....just don't know why !)

    Or, this could be Beethoven, refering to Napoleon...but I'll stick with my first guess. I like that better.
