traveler, who are those brothers? I have looked up everybody I could think of…

Those brothers’ works would be very familiar to someone who is both a pilot and an engineer (or mathematician).

Bernoulli Brothers.

I think #19, #20 still open?  I searched through a few Popes looking for #20, but no luck, although some of the Popes made it up on to this list of Evil People.  grin

Can I offer #24?  Clue: Common sense. (Dark painting on the right.)

Can I offer #25?  Clues: Polish science, studied in France, Nobel prize for Physics in 1903. (Woman in the middle.)

Can I offer #26?  Clue: Russian science, one for the chemists.  (Clue 2)  (Wild man on the left.)

Can I offer #27?  Clue: “The book, which went on to be widely copied and imitated, introduced the Hindu-Arabic place-valued decimal system and the use of Arabic numerals into Europe. Indeed, although mainly a book about the use of Arab numerals, which became known as algorism, simultaneous linear equations are also studied in this work. Certainly many of the problems that [that man] considers in Liber abaci were similar to those appearing in Arab sources.”  (The charcoal drawing.)

You two are quick, I linked some of the pics, you can click them, but no cheating.  grin  #24 IS Thomas Paine, and #25 is Marie Curie.  #24 Project Gutenberg: Common Sense by Thomas Paine

#26 and #27 are harder.  #27 beating on you?  He can beat your math skills!  Silly me, my clue gave #27 away, I guess you missed it, I removed that give-away.  Do click on Clue 2 for #26.

Predictions of the end… grin  I’m okay, you’re okay!
