Here come the goalies, scientists who seem to get everything. They have great knowledge from a plethora of subjects. The setup of the teams will be old school vs new school. Old school is pre 1800 and new school after that.
Old School: Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo is considered the original renaissance man, as he was a scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer. By many, he is considered the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. He is, however, known primarily as a painter, famous for the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper. Leonardo conceptualised in his notebooks: a helicopter, a tank, concentrated solar power, a calculator, and double hulled ships. Although, many of these inventions were not possible to construct in his lifetime, principles and ideas from his drawings are used to this day. He also greatly advanced the state of knowledge in the fields of anatomy, civil engineering, optics, and hydrodynamics.
New School: Richard Feynman
Richard Feynman was an American physicist known for his great contributions to quantum mechanics. His ideas were key in the shaping of theory of quantum electrodynamics (for which he won the Nobel Prize in 1965), and the parton model of particle physics. He is most famous for his pictorial representation of mathematical expressions describing subatomic particles (Feynman diagrams) and for introducing the idea of quantum computing and nanotechnology. Feynman is also famous for having esoteric and wide-ranging interests. He was an amateur painter, and bongo player. He also had an interest in microbiological genetics and aided in breaking the long standing code of Mayan heiroglyphs. Towards the end of his life, he worked towards a trip to Tuva, at the time a republic of the Soviet Union. Although he did not actually manage to travel to Tuva, he did learn about the Tuvan’s culture, language and history.
