2. Sir Isac Newton ( he was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist, and theologian. His law of universal gravitation and three laws of motion laid the groundwork for classical mechanics.

8. Ts'ai Lun

9. Johannes Gutenburg

10. Columbus

1) Norman Borlaug

No one else I am aware of comes close. But, here are a few, not in order of importance, but all had a great significance in the history of the world...

2) Leonardo Da Vinci
3) Carl Sagan
4) Albert Einstein
5) Constantine
6) Thomas Jefferson
7) Charlemagne
8) Nickola Tesla
9) Nicolaus Copernicus
10) Galileo
11) Winston Churchill

A few men you didn't find on this list: Christopher Columbus, Mohandas Gandhi, Thomas Edison. I find too much fault in these men to make them greater than the ones listed above, so I don't feel they should be added to the list. They were important, but not as great or significant as the listed.
