C. James Watt (1736 - 1819)
D. William Thomson, Lord Kelvin of Largs (1824 -1907)
E. Sir Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)
F. James Clark Maxwell (1831 - 1879)
G. Charles Babbage (1791 - 1871)
H. John Dalton (1766 - 1844)
I. Robert Boyle (1627 - 1691)
J. Michael Faraday (1791 - 1867)

1.British mathematician and pioneer of computer science. Thanks to his work the electronic computers were built 75 years after his death.
2.British astronomer and mathematician who worked for over 22 years at Greenwich studying the orbits of several comets and the Moon. One of the most short-period comets has his name.
3.He studied physical phenomena, electricity, heat, magnetism, elasticity and defined the absolute thermodynamic scale of temperature, which starts from absolute zero in the units named in his honour.
4.One of the greatest British chemists who investigated colour blindness, from which he and his brother suffered. (Colour blindness has this man's name).
5.An engineer who invented a steam engine
6.The physicist who showed by experiments that heat is a form of energy and calculated the mechanical equivalent of heat. A unit of work or energy is called after him.
7.British physicist and chemist, one of the discoverers of electromagnetic induction. He discovered the principle of the dynamo. Units of quantity of electricity and of capacitance are both named after him
8.A superb mathematician and physicist, the first professor of experimental physics at Cambridge, who showed that electricity and magnetism always coexist. Another of his discoveries was that the rings of Saturn consisted of a large number of small particles.
9.A brilliant English mathematician and scientist who discovered the law of universal gravitation. (When he was 23 years old, he watched an apple fall from a tree to the ground).
10.An Irish physicist and chemist who studied the behaviour of gases. He showed that sound waves are carried by air (by showing that a bell ringing in a jar evacuated of air cannot be heard).

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Aristotle: It is the nature of chickens to cross roads.
Isaac Newton: Chickens at rest tend to stay at rest, chickens in motion tend to cross roads.
Albert Einstein: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road moved beneath the chicken depends on your frame of reference.
Werner Heisenberg: We are not sure which side of the road the chicken was on, but it was moving very fast.
Wolfgang Pauli: There already was a chicken on this side of the road.

C. Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace (1815-1852)
An English mathematician and the daughter of the famous poet, Lord 1............
Lady Lovelace is sometimes called the first programmer. She suggested using a 2........... system rather than the decimal system for storage.
The “Ada” programming language , which the 3................ developed in the late 1970s for military applications.
/binary, Pentagon, Byron,/

Q: What is more useful: the sun or the moon?
A: The moon, because the moon shines at night when you want the light, whereas the sun shines during the day when you don't need it.
