Albert Einstein also created the general theory of relativity. He is recognized as one of the greatest physicists in history, not to mention the fact that he was certainly one of the most brilliant physicists of the 20th century.
The Wright brothers
The Wright brothers, Orville Wright and Wilbur Wright, are considered pioneers of aviation. In 1903, they constructed the first aircraft powered by an internal combustion engine. Of course, aviation took a long time to develop, and it took the Wright siblings many years of patience, making mistakes, and fixing them. The first flying machines could not take off on their own and they had to be given momentum (e.g. with a catapult) to stay in the air. The Wright brothers paved the way for others to fly in the sky as well.
