Then I guess Nikola Tesla must be Elvis (The King)
Seriously though Tesla was a true genius scientist, Hawking and Einstein don't even come close to his genius, they're more fantasists than scientists.
I think Tesla would be better compared to a great artist who's also slightly underrated in the overall public consciousness compared to contemporaries (but then what defines underrated varies massively between people). Imo, Mark E. Smith or Roots Manuva could fit well.
Got massive respect for Tesla, although would argue rather than depicting Tesla as a true scientist and Hawking + Einstein as fantasists due to Tesla developing more applicable ideas, I'd view Tesla as more of an engineer/scientist and Hawking + Einstein as closer to pure scientists (by pure, I don't mean 'better', just their results are less directly applicable in real life as basic ideas, and so closer to science rather than engineering imo)
Different genres mate. I find Hawking's and Einstein's music science more interesting
I've always preferred realism to be honest mate, especially when it comes to science.
einsteins theories are the base of modern physics around the world. everything he did had groundbreaking impact. just recently scientists proved the existence of gravitational waves (something einstein said would be impossible to find) which was another milestone. his theory of relativity is one of the most important pieces in history. its pretty harsh to call it fiction.
Would I ever leave this company? Look, I’m all about loyalty. In fact, I feel like part of what I’m being paid for here is my loyalty. But if there were somewhere else that valued loyalty more highly… I’m going wherever they value loyalty the most.
How come this forum knows so much about science? If someone would ask me if the earth rotates around the sun or vice versa, I would have to think for ten seconds before I could answer. Partly because I never think that much about science, partly because I would be afraid to say the wrong thing(even though I don't know if I've ever done that), and partly because I'm probably somewhat of a moron.
