Fastest scientist and fastest engineer? 2/10/2013 10:22AM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
No idea who the fastest scientist is, but I think Daniele Meucci (13:19, 27:32) is the fastest engineer, right?

Daniel Lincoln either IS or IS ON HIS WAY to becoming a doctor of medicine, which is a scientist. He's pretty fast.

was pretty fast, lots of former great runners went on to be great scientists, engineers etc.

Aren't most runners scientists or engineers?

Yeah, science is not perfectly defined

Lets go with these two:

Fastest formal scientist (math or cs)

Fastest engineer, who I believe is Meucci?

A mathematician is not a scientist and a computer "scientist" is most definitely not a scientist. CS is an admirable profession but is isn't in anyway a science. Real science is empirical science like physics, chemistry, biology and their various sub-disciplines like neuroscience.

They are science but not formal science. But formal science isn't science.

Roger Bannister was a neuroscientist and was the fastest miler in the world in his day with his 3:59.4 and later 3:58.8(?) beating Landy.

Tim Hacker does cancer research now, he was pretty beastly back in the day.

I believe that Andy Baddely studied aerospace engineering at Cambridge.

Lets just forget about science and just focus on searching the fastest engineer

Im gonna check out those names you wrote to see if I can find confirmation that they studied engineering

So the list of fastest engineers/distance runners would be (olympic distances only):

800 1:46 Baddeley

1500 3:34 Baddeley

5000 13:19 Meucci

10000 27:32 Meucci

Marathon 2:13:49 Meucci

See if you can find someone faster of if this is the definitive list

Good call. I agree, but he might not get as much love here for 'only' a 2:45.
Still, he has an interesting marathon time-to-science contribution ratio.
I'm into the history of the founding fathers of algorithms and computer science, and since I'll never be that good of a computer scientist/engineer, I'm trying to beat his marathon time.

How about Erica Larson for the ladies?
(OT qualifier, but the multiple Pikes Peak marathon/ascent wins seem more impressive to me)
