    Physicists here will no doubt say Feynman.

    Personally a great hero of mine is Carl Sagan, but he will probably be before the time of most students in this forum.

    Feynman is my hero. I've read all his books and I think I have some sort of Feynman addiction.

    Actually Sagan died quite recently compared to the other famous physicists. I'm sure anyone with an interest in the sciences would have heard of him.

    Absolutely. What I meant to imply was that all the other names mentioned in this thread are scientists who people are taught about in their courses. More recent scientists who are not immediately in the public sphere or whose work people have not been made aware of, are going to be almost forgotten. Until 50 years down the line the impact of their work is fully appreciated.
