On June 18 of 1914, he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree, cum laude at the age of 16. He worked as a math professor after graduation. But he had to hide to avoid public scrutiny.

Leonardo the Vinci
Leonardo the Vinci is among the great artists of all time, well known for creating masterpieces of like, the Last Supper, the Vitruvius Man, Madonna of the Rocks and many more but Vinci wasn’t just an artist. He was a scientist, inventor, mathematician, and biologist. Vinci’s journals were his discovered after his death which says that his inventiveness, spirit of scientific inquiry was a lot of centuries ahead of his time. For example, people things that the modern helicopter which was built in the 1940s was found in some sketches of Vinci. Also, a recent discovery of mesentery in the human body was made by him all those years ago but our scientist found it in just last two years.
Marilyn Vos Savant
This America-born columnist and the author made history in 1986 when her name was written in the Guinness book of world records reference her as the person with the highest IQ. Marilyn second 228 on the Stan ford Benet test at the age of 10. It is a test of cognitive ability and intelligent for determining the skills, young children. The parade magazine launched a popular column in the wake for her newfound fame known as “ask Marilyn where people give her though puzzles and questions which she answered, and it still running. Her husband Robert Jarvik also as smart guy designing the world’s first successful artificial heart and the New York magazine quoted them as the smartest couple in New York.
Tesla was an inventor and engineer widely known for his great contribution to the modern alternating current’s design. The supply of electricity which is people still using. Tesla worked under Thomas Edison for a short time in the 1880s before he discovered his own to strengthen his discovered of AC current to proved free energy to the world. Tesla died in 1963 but his name again came up in public because of the General Conference on Weights and Measures which choose his name for naming the magnetic flux density unit, Tesla.
Kim Ung Yong
This civil engineer of South Korea was recorded by the Guinness book for world records as one of the most intelligent person with the IQ score of 210. He was born in 1962 and started to talk when he was just 4 months old and he when he was 3 years old, he could speak Japanese, Korean, English, and Garman when kids can only one language of this age.

Later, Ung Yong traveled to the United States and he began to work for NASA. He quit his job at the age of 18 and now he is a professor at the Chungbuk National University in South Korea.
Sir Isaac Newton is well known for his groundbreaking discoveries including laws of motion and gravity has established the modern physics, his real genius comes from how he applied so perfectly the theories to explain the sun’s and motion planets which were never even thought before. His principal mathematics is recorded as one of the most powerful and important texts in the history of science describing the working of the solar system. Newton also explained the nature between the planetary orbit and the pull between heavenly bodies which truly changed the vision of people.
Alen Turing helped to crack the Enigma Machine during world war two it was used by the German military to send cryptic messages. Winston Churchill said that his work is very important to win the war. But Alen wasn’t only famous for his code-breaking skills and help to defect Nazis but also his mathematical work is Modern world’s basis like iPad, Facebook, mobile and others are fully based on the ideas he gave. In 1950, he created a test known as Turing test, which was created to measure the intelligence of a computer. In the test, a computer tries to bluff a human into thinking he is talking to a human, not a computer. And it is still an example artificial intelligence today. But his life wasn’t easy, he was a homosexual man and that time being gay was illegal in the UK and that’s why he was prosecuted in 1952 for his homosexual activities. Before his 42d birthday, he was found dead, the postmortem report said that died of cyanide poising also said that it was a suicide. And in 2013 he was granted a posthumous pardon.
Marie Curie’s groundbreaking research of radioactivity was contributory in the x-ray’s development in surgery she was famous as the first female noble list, winning Nobel Prize in various sections in science. She was also the first woman to teach at the Sorbonne. She married Pierre in 1895 and both of them toiled research in radioactivity new field. Curie continued her work even after Pierre died and took over the teaching post of Pierre Curie become a famous face of science after she won her Nobel prize, she also used her influence to get funding for radio activity’s research. She also helped to equip ambulances with x-ray equipment during the First World War and she also drove them to the front lines. But she used to carry radioactivity materials into her pocket which ultimately caused her death in 1934.
People think that famous theoretical physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking is the smartest man. He is very famous for the contribution he gave to the fields of cosmology. He made a prediction in the 1960s and 1970s that black hole should release radiation. The radiation is now known as Hawking Radiation. A brief history of time, his revolutionary book discussed his discoveries such as the development of big bang theory. This book becomes the best seller and strayed on the NEW YORK bestseller list for 147 weeks.
Albert Einstein is the most name in the history, also known as a genius. This theatrical physicist becomes most famous for his evolutionary formula e=mc2. It first connected an object’s mass with its energy. Einstein received a Nobel Prize in 1921 for his great contributions to a theatrical physicist, but especially, for the discovery of the Law of the Photoelectric Effect. Einstein contributed developing nuclear fusion, which later was used as the automatic bomb. Einstein died at the age of 76 years from an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm.
