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

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.
