Einstein put all his theories on paper before getting assassinated by his maid. Tesla lost funding from the banks because he wanted to spread free energy.

Neither one will be able to make significant contributions to their field anymore. Einstein's life was awesome; Tesla's sucked. I'll give Tesla the chance for some happiness.

Plus Tesla was a big proponent of renewable energy, and activism is something that he definitely could contribute to.

>>6639976
Einstein hated quantum physics, and spent the rest of his life trying to find a physical theory which didn't give those results. We are now entirely sure that all the weird predictions of quantum mechanics actually happen, and attempts to combine quantum mechanics and relativity have taken them far afield from Einstein's expertise and intuition.

Tesla didn't believe in quantum physics either, and electronics today goes far beyond the analog world Tesla was familiar with. Besides, Tesla's grand vision, the World System, for the most part has already been achieved. The only thing we're missing is efficient wireless power transmission, and we've been working on that long enough I really doubt Tesla actually found it.
>>
Nikola tesla was a madman electrical engineer who, while he had a good understanding of electricity, has done nothing significant to further the extent of human knowledge, especially in the areas where we need it now.

Einstein CHANGED THE FUCKING WAY WE UNDERSTAND GRAVITY.
>>
Only reason I'd choose Tesla is so that he can see that his "predictions" if you can call them that are true. There is a quote he said along the lines of "History will show me right" and I think he'd like to see that become a reality even if he was entirely convinced in himself in the first place. I think he'd be a bit upset that society doesn't think highly of eugenics anymore or that he would need to learn quantum physics to make significant contributions in this time.
>>
I'ld choose Einstein not because of any science-related reasons but just because he seems nicer.

Einstein helped create quantum physics, he didn't "hate" it. What he disliked was the Copenhagen interpretation you idiot.
>>
Is this poll a joke?

Of course it's TESLA! The man has truly changed the world. Einstein just combined a bunch of theories of others and nothing has changed in our daily lives.

LOL NO. He hated uncertainty. All interpretations assume uncertainty.

Also, Einstein is WAY, WAY OVERRATED. I know some of you will get immensely butthurt over this but it's true. He took work from Lorenz, Poincare, Michelson and just combined it. No great thinking or work involved. If he didn't come up with it, someone else would have connected the dots within a year from his discovery. Pic related.

On the other hand, Tesla advanced us 100+ years.

Or his contributions to quantum mechanics, statistical physics and of course general relativity.
>>
>>6640083
>LOL NO.
what the fuck? do you even know the amount of papers he wrote about QM?

>He took work from Lorenz, Poincare, Michelson and just combined it.
thats how science works you dumbass, and that's for specials relativity, do you know the difference between special relativity and quantum mechanics?

>Tesla advanced us 100+ years.
how? he didnt invent a single thing that wasnt done by someone else at the same time.
>>
Einstein gave all he could give to the world, in his later years he didn't really come up with anything new, he said it himself that he was a bitter old man clinging to his past glory
>>
>>6640083

>Michelson
Michelson conducted an experiment that demonstrated that we could not detect our motion through the aether. Arguably the strongest experimental evidence against the idea of an aether.

>Lorentz
Formulated a transformation law describing how an object should be contracted along the direction of it's motion.

>Poincare
Did a lot of work with what was called the "electromagnetic mass" at the time, this yields an equation that bares a superficial resemblance to E=mc^{2} that you casuals know of, it however is not the rest mass of Einstein.

None of these people created a theory of relativity, although they all contributed to a collective knowledge that was showing that our current understanding of physics was wrong.

>Einstein
Starting from just two postulates and an elegant theoretical argument re-derived the Lorentz contraction (completely independently) along with several other Lorentz-like equations in a consistent theory. In doing so he change the way physicists and mathematicians looked at the universe. It is honestly hard to underestimate how big of a contribution Einstein made to physics with that one paper.
>>

>>6640094

All that butthurt. Sorry that the truth about Einstein.

>>6640084
>What about his formulation of Brownian motion?

I'm 99% sure that it was formulated by his 1st wife, Mileva. That was her domain of research long before Einstein even heard of the problem.
>>
>>6640119
So now that I've attacked Einstein and his work, you're bringing race into the argument and are trying to derail the whole thread. When you can't win by arguments alone, start ad hominem and other low-ball attacks. What a scumbag way to argue.

Unbelievable!
>>
>>6639871
Neither.
What is the point? Their original research might have been significant, yet I doubt that they are anyhow more efficent than an average employed scientist today. perfectly capable of developing his own scientific inventions and theories just like those man did. Their resurrestion would not really foster science in any way.

Are you for real?
>Other than "God doesn't play dice"?
And the photon and solving the photoelectric effect in the process also because he didn't like the philosophical implications of QM he devised several thought experiments that stimulated the development of quantum mechanics.

>You mean when got caught trying to copy the work of Gibbs?

Gibbs was one of the founders of Stat. mech but it Einstein contributed to it.

Einstein had a few good ideas in his 20s/30s, and then burned out for the rest of his life.
Arguably he actually impeded science later on due to his rejection of quantum theory and his silly assumptions about cosmology

einstein had the opportunity to develop all of his ideas, while tesla was buttfucked by haters and would probably have a lot to share still. this doesn't change the fact that einstein was by far a more influential scientist

Tesla.

Einstein made very major contributions, but I feel like he'd be too caught up hating the state of modern physics to make more.

Tesla still had work to do, and I feel like modern technology would be a boon for his capacity to think and invent new things.
