    I completely agree. Einstein theorized a lot of important matters in physics which have helped us understand better the universe around us, but since the question was science and technology; Tesla wins hands down.

    I think that's an interesting way of looking at things. I wonder if there could have been amazing discoveries, theories, or inventions simply lost because nobody found out about it and the idea died.

    I agree Einstein's equation is still on of the most influential equations from the 20th century. His theories of relativity to a point still stand even though we keep trying to knock them down.

    Bill Gates did become successful on his own work then he used that money and success to build a corporation that includes thousands of intelligent people contributing to technology. But he started as an individual.
