Isaac Newton

12-25-1642 - 3-20-1727

Charles Darwin

2-12-1809 - 4-19-1882

Nikola Tesla

10 July 1856 - 7 January 1943

Albert Einstien

14 March 1879 - 18 April 1955

Known for his help in the Manhattan Project, which created the first nuclear weapon known to man.

Scientific Breakthroughs

Newtons Laws of Motion


First time anyone has tried to find rules to physics and how it works.

Discovery of the Radiowave


Began as a perdiction by scientist Clerk Maxwell and was soon proven by Heinrich Hertz in his laboratory.

Space Travel


Born from an idea by Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, and later realised by engineer Robert H. Goddard. First spacecraft took off in Germany and was called the "V2" rocket.

Nuclear Fission


Discovered by the combined work of many scientists, such as Ernest Rutherford, and Niels Bohr

Creation of the motor vehicle


First vehicle ever to carry a man, the "Vostok"

Five Major Medical Scientists

Albrecht von Haller

16 October 1708 - 12 December 1777

Karl Landsteiner

June 14, 1868 - June 26, 1943

Alexander Fleming

6 August 1881 - 11 March 1955

Hans Selye

January 26, 1907 - October 16, 1982

James Watson

April 6, 1928 - Present

Medical Breakthroughs


2650 BCE

the act of cutting a patient open to solve an issue that is within the patient. Dates back furthest to Egypt in 2650 BCE.


1500 B.C.

Enabled people to use special herbs to heal one another to an extent. One of the first medical breakthroughs, and most substantial, ever.

Anatomy of Man


Depicted by Leonardo Da Vinci, is the "Vitruvian Man" which shows the "normal" length and width of a man.

Discovery of Penicillin


First medication developed as an "Anti-Biotic" which meant it combated biological things in the body that are not necessarily wanted.



While the first pill may have been manufactured in 1960, pills actually date back to before the nineteenth century, as ideas and prototypes. But at the turn of the century, all medical interest in them was lost.

Wars and Science

Eighty Years' War

1568 - 1648

The Eighty Years' War lasted Eighty years and was worldwide colonial warfare. It was mainly a fight for Dutch Independence, however it involved much more than the Dutch. Britain, France, the Holy Roman Empire, and Spain were also involved.

Second Northern War

1655 - 1660

The war began with Sweden invading and capturing Poland. The Polish army surrendered to invading Swedish forces and offered their aid. After that the Swedes pushed into Denmark and took some strongholds. Shortly afterward, they were pushed out and back to Sweden and a peace treaty was negotiated.

Napoleonic Wars

18 May 1803 - 20 November 1815

The Napoleonic wars began when seven coalitions declared war on the Armies of France. Despite being vastly outnumbered, France managed to destroy five of the seven coalitions under the command of Napoleon.

World War 1

28 July 1914 - 11 November 1918

World War 1 was a conflict centered in Europe between 1914 and 1918. This war involved all major powers of the time. And they were split into two sides, the Allies and the Axis. The end result of the war was Allied victory, and the Germans and former Ottomans lost a great deal of land.

World War 2

1 September 1939 - 2 September 1945

World War 2 was a war between almost all nations. And, so far, the war with the most casualties. The Main Powers were: America, Great Britain, Germany, Japan, Italy, France, Canada, and Russia. The war lasted six years and one day, and ended with the use of Albert Einstein's invention of the Nuclear Bomb. Which was dropped on two Japanese cities; Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
