Hello, Im sorry if I posted this in the wrong place. When I grew up I never knew who Maxwell was. It wasnt until I became intersted in physics and started to dig a little bit deeper that his name came up. Almost everyone knows who Einstein and Newton is, Feynman is pretty popular and people who worked on the bomb such as Oppenheimer and Teller are names that people without any interest in physics have heard about. Overall my opinion is that scientist doesnt get the attention they deserve people are more interested in reading about Britneys new shoes but that's a whole other issue. It might just be the country I live in who doesnt give Maxwell the credit he deserves but I got a feeling that he is kinda unknown to the general public everywhere. He should be up there right next to Einstein and Newton in my opinion! So, Im wondering if you guys agree with me about Maxwells status among the general public or am I completey wrong here? If you agree then why is it so? Thank you.
