Ohm, Georg Simon (1787-1854), a German physicist. He discovered the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance in an electric circuit. The unit of electrical resistance (the ohm) was named for him after his death. Ohm was born in Erlangen and attended the university there. He taught at several schools before becoming professor of physics at the University of Munich in 1849.
The man who had some theories about relativity was also an eccentric who gleefully eschewed socks, dodged German military service and spurned social conventions.
He's ventured to the abyss of black holes, wagered on the information paradox and floated around in zero gravity. Meet the man, the legend, the super scientist: Stephen Hawking.
