Science > greek scientists
Here is an outline of greek science history through the ages.
Ancient greeks covered theoretical aspects of sciences but they never bothered to use experiments. Aristotle haunted european scientific thought for more than a thousand years. Euclides with his Elements, Archimedes were great mathematicians, and Hippocrates a great physician. All the scientific texts were condemned by the christians of the byzantine era, as 'pagan' and thankfully, the Arabs rescued and translated these texts. Through them, they were introduced to Europe.
In modern times lots of greeks were educated, some outside Greece. The ones that are famous, are the doctor Papanikolaou (who created the PAP test) and the mathematician Karatheodory.

The fist question was popped by a greek merchant, traveller and wise man: What is the world around us made of???? His name was Thales.
Thales by wikipedia
Many ANCIENT GREEK PHILOSOPHERS, (the presocratic hylozoists, Phtyagora, Aristotle) continued the effort to answer this question.
In the middle times (byzantine) people did not wonder about the world... They thought answers were given.
In modern times, when new questions popped, new answers were given. Here are contemporary greek physicists:
