    7 - however, I guessed a lot and Oppenheimer made me angry for I didn't chose him because it was TOO obvious

    Some I'd never heard before. But there were two that I have read many times in books or articles and still got wrong.

    1 correct answer (Newton) was due to a linked Feynman lecture here on PF I completely enjoyed 3 days ago :smile:
    (I belong to those people to whom it's easier to remember the unimportant stuff.)

    7. Some were guesses but a few I missed by not going with my first reaction.

    I managed an 8. I always liked the historical side of things. Teaching and including historical anecdotes helps a lot.

    10.

    I guessed #10 had to be Curie. I didn't think theorists would talk about "a scientist in his laboratory"!

    10 is pretty good.

    Inadvertent copy of your post (previous).

    Right. Haha

    7, all by "educated" guessing.

    8
    I like #5 which I didn't know before and I erroneously attributed it to Richard Feynman.
    I would have expected such a statement just from him :-)

    7, with a lot of guessing. I was only sure of 2.
