20 Physicists Who Revolutionised Our Understanding Of The World

image credit Physics is the study of the physical world, from falling apples to the motion of planets and stars to the behaviour of the tiny subatomic particles that make up the world around us.Physics is everywhere. And every now and then a physicist comes along who forever changes our perception of the Universe and everything in it. Here are 20 physicists whose theories, ideas, and discoveries revolutionised the way we see the world.
