People in the 20th Century

Edwin Hubble | Albert Einstein | Stephen Hawking

20th Navigation

The twentieth century saw some of the most famous people in history, especially in the field of astronomy and physics, which have been growing very close over the past few centuries. No site can do justice to all of the minds of the past century, so here we will concentrate on three: Edwin Hubble, who revolutionized the way we think of the universe; Albert Einstein, who revolutionized the way we think of time, space, and gravity; and Stephen Hawking, who has and continues to revolutionize our understanding of the early universe and of black holes.
