List of Famous Scientists That Were NOT Nobel Prize Winners

4 Famous Scientists That Were NOT Nobel Prize Science Winners:

Nobel Prize Awards can be as contentious as they are prestigious. Nobel Prizes are rarely awarded posthumously and historically women have not fared well. Judges in any competition are only human with their own biases and prejudices and then there’s just unlucky bad timing. ADDucation is pleased to highlight a handful of famous scientists that didn’t win a Noble prize.

  • Dimitri Mendeleev: (1834-1907) Russian chemist.
    Mendeleev was an inventor and chemist whose periodic law and work on the periodic table helped predict chemical elements that had not yet been discovered. Mendeleev was nominated for the 1906 Nobel Prize in Chemistry but died in 1907 without that honor.
  • Gilbert Newton Lewis: (1875-1946) American chemist.
    Lewis came up with the concept of covalent bonding which deepened our understanding of how chemical bonding works. He also produced the first heavy water molecule and coined the term “photon”. Lewis was nominated for a Noble prize 35 times between 1922 and 1935 without winning. Bias is suspected.
  • Annie Jump Cannon: (1863-1941) American astronomer.
    Cannon was one of “Pickering’s Harem” a team of women hired by Edward Pickering at the Harvard Observatory. They collectively mapped and classified every star in the sky. Cannon came up with a classification system which categorised stars based on spectral absorption lines.
  • Chien-Shiung Wu: (1912-1947) American physicist.
    Wu became famous for her “Wu experiment” which disproved the widely accepted “Parity Law” proving that nature is “handed”. Her work led to two male colleagues Tsung-Dao Lee and Chen Ning Yang winner the 1957 Nobel Prize in Physics. Several nicknames stuck; “First Lady of Physics”, “Chinese Madame Curie” and “Queen of Nuclear Research”.
