    Tesla invented the death ray and, for that, he is my hero.

    I'm gonna say Sun Tzu and his brilliant war strategies.

    But as an actual, physical invention: the microchip and everyone who helped make it what it is.
    The lil guy revolutionized the world of electronics.

    There's of course the Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel, which most people should know about. He's the inventor of dynamite, and the founder of the Nobel Prize.

    Abu Abdallah Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi , the founder of Algebra. Algebra comes from the arabic word Al-jabr.

    Abu Ali al-Hasan ibn al-Hasan ibn al-Haytham, a great scientist of the 10th century.

    Invented the camera obscura.

    He discussed the theory of attraction between masses, and it seems that he was also aware of the magnitude of acceleration due to gravity at a distance.

    In the dynamics and kinematics fields of mechanics, Ibn al-Haytham's Risala fi’l-makan (Treatise on Place) discussed theories on the motion of a body. He maintained that a body moves perpetually unless an external force stops it or changes its direction of motion. Later formulated as Newton's first law of motion.

    Ibn al-Haytham also discovered the concept of momentum (now part of Newton's second law of motion)

    And this in the 10th fucking century people.

    A little taste of some inventions made in the middle ages: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/sc...ld-469452.html

    That reminds me. I have a 10 minutes long presentation to do for the end of the year. It's in science and it has to be related to the subject : resource, distribution, sharing.

    Any idea ?

    Yep, that's my problem. It has to be related somehow to at least one of those words.

    Maybe you could talk about the process of trading and the technologies used? (sharing, distribution)

    Or how mass assembly works? (Distribution and resource)

    Or how converting minerals and other things can be used to create products? Like, the process of taking metals and turning them into parts for products? (resource, distribution, sharing,)
