He was born in Ulm Germany, and later was influenced by a compass at age five, and later dropped out of school due to the authoritarian attitude of some teachers, and later enrolled to the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School. Excelled in math and physics, but his other subjects didn't suffice enough to let enter. But later after some courses, entered the school, and received a diploma in math, and physics.
Like before, he didn't excel in many subjects, because his interest was solely in math, or physics.
He descovered a new way of looking towards our universe, being that time, and space are connected, and that the laws of physics are the same.
Born in Pisa, and having six siblings. He later on inherited the skepticism of the government by his father, a well famous lutenist, and music theorists. Later the family having financial problems, and made Galileo have the passion of inventing things to help with their financial problems.
He happens to a lutenist himself, and let's say that he happens to be very good at it as well.
It is a misconception that he made the first telescopes, but he did significantly improved on the design of it, and making the telescope more efficient in seeing power. And doing so, he descovered the craters in the moon, the sunspots, and the tracking phase of Venus, and discovered the rings of Saturn. And successfully found the four massive moons of Jupiter.
Born in Saint-Lô Manch France he studied at École Polytechnique, and briefly studied chemistry, and later switched to astronomy. Most particularly celestial mechanics. Accepting a job in the Paris Observatory, and later becoming the head director of the institution.
He happens to do a paper about the combination of phosphorus and hydrogen, and phosphorus and oxygen.
His achievement includes the finding of Neptune by using mathematical equations, and astronomical observations of the known planet of Uranus.
Born in Electorate f Hanover in Germany, his family a Lutheran Christians. His father was a oboist in the Hanover military band. Later Hanover was intergrated to Great Britain due to the looming threat of war against France. And unfortunately due to the defeat in the battle of Hastenback, their father send both of his son to seek refugee in England. The first son got dismissed, while Herschel got accused of desertion, thankfully King George the III pardoned Herschel, and happen to join an orchestra. Later his interest in astronomy grew, and later meet Astronomer Royal Nevil Maskelyne.
Did you know he was a violinist, a harpsichord, and also the organ. With that skills, he happen to be violin soloist, and produced music pieces.
His contribution into astronomy is when he investigated the sighting towards double stars, and reveled cluster stars in the nebula in the Messier catalogue, and counted 2,500 stars in 1802, and 5,000 stars in 1820. But in 1781, he happens to realize that he wasn't observing a star. But a planet know as Uranus, and also two of it's moons.
Born in Streater Illinois. He happens to live the farm life, like all of those who happens to be born from a typical farmer. Later moving to Burdett Kansas, in 1922. His plans of college was literally destroyed, when his farm crops where destroyed by a hailstorm. Then he built his own telescope out of glass, and mirrors (because he can). After getting a job in the Lowell observatory by giving them drawings of Jupiter, and Mars.
He happens to teach naval officers navigation in the Northern Arizona University during World War Two.
He contributed by finding the dwarf planet Pluto, and also discovering hundrededs of other asteroids as well as starting from 2839 Annette.
He was born in Boston Massachusetts, and into a wealthy family. Later on graduating from Noble and Greenough school, with a distinction in math, and happen to do a speech about nebular hypothesis. Later got a degree from Amherst College, and Clark University. Later becoming a foreign secretary , and a counselor for a special Korean diplomat mission for America. Later observing other cultures like Japan's culture.
He happens to make a book about Japanese culture when he stayed in Japan in particular.
His discovery is mostly based about Martian Canals, and how he found out that mars happens to have canals on the surface, and especially finding asteroid 793 Arizona
He was born in Woolsthorpe Manor in county of Lincolnshire, and later schooled in The King's School, Grantham where he was thought Latin, Greek, and also math. Having to leave school, and apparently his mother trying to making a farmer out of poor Isaac. Henry Stokes, the headmaster of The King's School, Grantham. Convinced Isaac's mother to go back to school once more, and to which she did. Later entering Trinity College, Cambridge due to the recommendation of his uncle who studied their, and later on got a scholarship, which in turn guarantees of him his ability to receive a M.A. Later being troubled by the church, and somehow avoiding the troubles.
Did you know that he threatened to burn his stepfather's, and his mother mothers house. Dark isn't it?
He is well know for his Newtonian Mechanics, as well as Universal gravitation, optics, and Newton's law of motion (I think this is part of astronomy)
Born in Vera Florence Cooper in Philadelphia, and her family were Jewish immigrants. Later moving to Washington D.C when Vera was 10 years old and began developing interest in astronomy. She became a undergraduate in Vessar College due to Maria Mitchell. Their she earned her BA degree in 1948, and later enrolled to Cornell, where she studied physics under Phillip Morrison, and also quantum physics under Richard Feynman. Later completing her M.A thesis study in 1951.
Did you know that she attempted to enroll into Princeton, but was turned down due to being a female.
Her discovery includes the finding of gravity rotations problems, dark matter, and her own Rubin-Ford effect.
Born in Marshfield Missouri, he was more of a man of athletics. Going to the University of Chicago, and also a man who was gifted in math, philosophy, and astronomy, which in turn earned him his bachelors degree in science in 1910.
Did you know he did football, basketball, baseball and track.
He happens to discover that the Andromeda nebula wasn't a nebula, or a star, but also a galaxy. By do so, he discovered more galaxies, and began naming them. All in all discovering 49 galaxies, and later making the Hubble sequence.
