My names Paracelsus and I am considered one of the best medical scientists of my time.
I've researched with mercury and even injected it into humans to heal syphilis. It worked at first but then the people I injected started to die from poison .
I did cause some deaths but my work has impacted many people. I have improved medicine and started the basis to heal syphilis. It set a standard for medical scientists to research more materials.
I am Blaise Pascal a Mathematician and scientist and I continue each day to put my ideas about chance and probability into my work.
I created the Calculating machine to calculate chances and probability
I impacted people then because they could finally calculate things and impacted people of modern day because soon high tech calculators and calculating was started off the basis of my work as a mathematician
