The greatest people of all time.
What does it mean to be famous? Here, for example, Chesley Sullenberger got into the second position of the Top 100 most influential people in 2009 for just a successful emergency landing of an aircraft, as a result of which no one was hurt. But time passes, and all these rating names are erased and dissolved in the millions of the same rating names. But there are ten people who are known in every part of the world. They knew about them, they know and will know. And we invite you to remember these ten people in the Top Greatest People of All Time. The names are listed in ascending order, from the tenth to the most important, first place.
If you rank people on demand at Google, then Albert Einstein would be in the tenth place; in one month, the “Albert Einstein” query picks up 6.1 million search queries. But much more books have been written about Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein is unlikely to ever be able to defeat him in that sense. Sir Isaac Newton discovered the Law of Attraction, invented the term “gravity”, invented a reflecting telescope, defeated the Roman Catholic Church by substantiating geocentrism and determined that any, even the smallest object in the Universe moves. In his spare time, Newton investigated the principles of optics. Lived a long life and died at the age of 84 years.
In the case of one of the greatest people in the history of Leonardo da Vinci, Google search can be quite inaccurate. And if you enter only the name “Leonardo”, then Google will give a bunch of links to ninja turtles and people who drowned on the Titanic. But if you type the full name of Leonardo da Vinci, immediately show up that he is known to the whole world. A man who could do anything. And all the books about him and his inventions are perhaps the biggest and most interesting resume in the world. He was an engineer, inventor, anatomist, architect, mathematician, geologist, musician, cartographer, botanist, writer and sculptor. He invented a rifle, even if it was not immediately similar to what we used to call a rifle, but Leonardo’s rifle fired at a distance of 1000 yards. He invented the parachute, 300 years before it was officially invented. He invented the hang-glider, 400 years before his official invention. Leonardo’s hang-glider was based on the work of bird wings. He was able to imagine what a helicopter should be like, however, he could not understand what kind of power it was to lift such a structure into the air. He invented the tank, which was a structure driven by a crankshaft. The construction could move and shoot simultaneously and in different directions. He invented scissors by bolting two knives.
On a par with the incredible inventions of his time, Leonardo was a magnificent artist and sculptor. The work “Mona Lisa” is a masterpiece of world portraiture, around which the controversy does not stop to this day.
