Why physicist who discovered things in gravity are the most famous ones ?

    Why only physicist who discovered new things in gravity are the most famous , Like Einstein Newton and Galileo ? Is it because gravity is the most mysterious thing and it's related to the biggest unsolved problems in physics ? Like black holes dark energy and dark matter and the unification of quatum physics with relativity ? Is it why gravity is the most famous field ?

    All three of the people you named did work well beyond gravity. You might want to look at what Einstein got the Nobel prize for.

    I suspect Maxwell is as famous.
