    Jane Goodall as second and no idea currently as third.
    I mentioned Rosalind Franklin. She's dead though, and I was mentioning her as deserving mention along with James Watson, my living mention.

    My own suspicion is that the Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.

    To easy seeing the comments... :P

    Anyway, here's some awesome people. Not all purely "scientists" per say though.
    - Sir Ken Robinson
    - Robert Winston
    - Joy S. Reidenberg
    - Michio Kaku

    There's more but I forgot their names... also, a lot where already named by others.

    Oh, also i'd like to add my first cousin! She is a neuro-scientist, doing work on Alzheimer among other things, she is still early in her career. But she is one of my idols ^_^

    Michio Kaku might be famous, but he's a damn joke. Basically everything he does is make up stuff.

    Stephen Hawking

    I think your requirement of 'famous' is flawed. I know many 'famous' scientists that are not in the media spotlight, but have done so much more for their respective fields of science that the primarily listed ones here. The only exception to that would be Prof. Stephen Hawking.

    My 'famous' living scientists would be

    Prof Stephen Hawking
    Prof An Pang Tsai (person who discovered the only thermally stable binary quasicrystal, which in turn has led perfect structural solutions being calculated for this form of solid matter)
    Sir Andre Geim (person who discovered a way to separate sheets of Graphene to such a degree that it is now possible to easily isolate a sheet of graphene one atom thick)
    WoW PvP; Where DPS are healers, tanks are DPS, and healers are tanks!

    RETH RETH RETH!

    Neil deGrasse Tyson was the one i was thinking of but couldn't for the life of me remember the name >_<

  16. #156
    Stephen Hawking (well duh)
    Neil Degrasse Tyson
    Richard Dawkins
    Lawrence Kraus
    Michio Kaku (parallel worlds, amazing book!)
