Penetrating intellect: Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (1845-1923) was a German physicist who won the first Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901 in recognition of his discovery of X-rays. Here is an image of a stamp featuring a profile portrait of Röntgen and depicting some laboratory equipment, designed by "Barth" (?, perhaps German graphic artist Ludwig Barth-Uchatzy, 1898-1983), engraved by Jan Piwczyk (1897-1972), and issued by Germany on December 10, 1951 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the physicist's Nobel Prize, Scott No. 686, Michel No. 147, plus a photo of Röntgen in 1900.

You are a voice in the wilderness; even I don't check your posts as often as I should. Let me comment on Sir Isaac Newton for now. My background is in business but I studied science in university with a major in mathematics and physics.

Newton is probably under-rated as a scientist as, in our time, we have become more familiar with Einstein and the many others who have contributed to modern physics. He is, however, regarded by some as the greatest genius to have ever lived. His life is fascinating and it is not known by many that he was one of the more pre-eminent Biblical scholars of his time - how that squares with his scientific inclination would be fascinating to research. It suggests an individual who is so complex that few of us could understand today how his mind worked.

We love Einstein because his special relativity theory which underpinned the development of the atom bomb is so easily understood by anyone with a basic understanding of calculus but Newtonian physics, notwithstanding the magnificent advance they represented at the time, seem rather bland by comparison.

It is difficult to put oneself in the mind of someone from that period but I am an admirer. Keep up your work and keep showing us stamps. Some of us appreciate it.

NBSTAMPER - Thanks. I'm glad that you have enjoyed reading some of my posts in this thread.

Energetic: Aikitu Tanakadate (1856-1952) is considered to be the founder of modern Japanese science, particularly in the areas of physics, geophysics, and aeronautics. Here is an image of a stamp featuring a portrait of Dr. Tanakadate, combined engraved and photogravure, and issued by Japan on November 5, 2002, Scott No. 2841, plus an image of a photograph of the scientist which was probably a model for this stamp's design. Bonus: Typewriter.

Host with the most: Happy Birthday to Theodor Maximilian Bilharz (1825-1862), a German physician, educator and an important pioneer researcher in the field of parasitology who spent much of his professional career in Egypt.
