    Died penniless and relatively unknown to the world outside of his direct field, which he wasn’t very well known in either. He has probably had the greatest contribution to modern science to date.

  2. Why is no one talking about the death of Robert Falcon Scott. The first British person to launch an expedition to reach the south pole.
    In 1911 the British and the Russians had a race to the pole. The Russians won, much to the dismay of Scott and his party when they found a Russian flag left behind on the pole.
