Here you have a list of webpages (of course you can consult others)

After leaving you comment, choose another person.

    I was reading about Cristopher Wren and I found that he studied physics and engineering. It was important for me because he rebuilt the Saint Paul`s Cathedral.
    The other thing that is important for me is that when he died, his gravestone was in saint paul`s cathedral. I found that important because he designed that cathedral.

    I found interesting about Galilei that In 1632 Galileo angered the Pope when he published a book in which he openly stated that the Earth was moving around the Sun. He was put on trial by the Inquisition in Rome, where he was found suspect of heresy, and forced to say that all of his findings were wrong. He was first imprisoned, and later confined to his house near Florence.

    I read about Isaac Newton and i found that in 1665 a plague epidemic forced the Cambridge University so he returned to Woolsthorpe.
