Do you remember the first time you’ve successfully solved a crossword puzzle in a magazine? Boy, it must have felt good! Well, I hate to rain on your parade but those puzzles are designed for people with average (maybe slightly above average) IQ. Just wait till you read about these 7 world’s brainiest geniuses to have ever walked the Earth.
1. Marie Curie (07.11.1867 — 04.07.1934)
During the World War I Marie Curie taught field medics how to use the harmful x-rays to get the pictures on the broken bones. Even to this day she remains one of the most well-recognized female scientist. In case you didn’t know Marie was nominated for the Nobel prize twice! Sadly, all those experiments with radiation caused a severe case of leukemia.
2. Stephen Hawking (08.01.1942-14.03.2018)
If I were compiling this list a year ago, Hawking would still be alive. Graduated from both Oxford and Cambridge, he was a maths teacher and a theoretical physicist everyone loved and adored. Throughout his life Stephen earned 25 medals and prizes, studied the Big Bang Theory (not the show, please) and the nature of the Black Holes. Ever heard of the Hawking Radiation? That’s his baby.
3. Aristotle (384 AD — 322 AD)
It’s only right that Plato’s student Aristotle would make it so high up the geniuses list. First and foremost Aristotle was a philosopher, but also decided to have a closer look at the physics as well as sociology. Ethics, logic, body and soul – all that and many other subjects were raised by him. In the end he was the one who taught Alexander the Great everything he knew, and that dude conquered like half the world!
