Stephen William Hawking (born 8 January 1942) is an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge. His scientific works include a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity, and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation.

Gustave Eiffel [1832–1923] was a French civil engineer and architect. He made his name with various bridges for the French railway network, most famously the Garabit viaduct. He is best known for the world-famous Eiffel Tower, built for the 1889 Universal Exposition in Paris, France. His work can also be seen in the frame of the Statue of Liberty. His contribution to the science of aerodynamics is probably of equal importance to his work as an engineer. [by Félix Nadar in 1888]
Henri Becquerel [1852-1908] In 1897 when Henri Becquerel researched the newly discovered X-rays it led to studies of how uranium salts are influenced by light. By accident, he discovered that the uranium salts spontaneously emitted a penetrating radiation that could be registered on a photographic plate. Further studies made it clear that this radiation was something new - not the same type as X-rays. He had discovered a new phenomenon - radioactivity. [by Félix Nadar]
