Add Carl Friedrich Gauss to the Great Scientists List
Carl Friedrich Gauss:
I am surprised to find out that Carl Friedrich Gauss is not part of the Great Scientists list. Gauss was one of the big 3, on par with Galileo and Newton, in terms of his insight and contributions to science and mathematics, yet he was excluded.
To understand this man's genius even further, it was found by Wagner, the great anatomist, and his brain was "one of the most highly convoluted brains" ever recorded, which was possibly "a sign of his genius":
The brain on the left is an ordinary brain while the one on the right is Gauss' brain.
Yet another picture of the great mathematician's brain (left) compared to an ordinary human (center).
To my knowledge, not even Einstein's brain (see below) was as complex as that of Gauss:
Yet another comparison:
If the number of cerebral convolutions is a sign of a person's character, personality, intellect and mental capacity, I see little other reason to justify the inclusion of Gauss into the great scientists list.
Let's see it happen!
