Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)
Engineer, inventor, scientist, architect and artist.
Known as the Universal Man, he is widely considered to be the most diversely talented person to have ever lived. Among his many achievements, he painted the world famous Mona Lisa. He was a universal scientist who made important discoveries in civil engineering, optics, hydrodynamics and anatomy (mapping the internal structure of the human body). His failure to publish his findings limited their influence on the future course of science. One of his designs, for a helicopter, looked remarkably similar to the first such machine, which was built 400 years later.
