John von Neumann was a Hungarian-American mathematician and polymath who made major contributions to a vast number of fields, including set theory, functional analysis, quantum mechanics, ergodic theory, geometry, fluid dynamics, economics, linear programming, game theory, computer science, numerical analysis, hydrodynamics, and statistics, as well as many other mathematical fields. He is generally regarded as one of the greatest mathematicians in modern history.

John Archibald Wheeler was an American theoretical physicist who was largely responsible for reviving interest in general relativity in the United States after World War II. Wheeler also worked with Niels Bohr in explaining the basic principles behind nuclear fission. One of the later collaborators of Albert Einstein, he tried to achieve Einstein's vision of a unified field theory. He is also known for having coined the terms black hole, quantum foam, and wormhole and the phrase "it from…

Shen Kuo (1031-1095 CE) - Northern Song Dynasty polymath. Shen Kuo was the first to describe the use of a magnetic needle as a compass, and many arts and science owe him a great debt, including astronomy, literature, physics, chemistry, calendrics, geology, medical science, and military strategy. He led troops into battle, served as the highest financial minister, and director of the imperial observatory.
