      Good question I am actually not sure as well like Kate many inspirational people who I would like to meet. I would like to meet the astronaut Tim Peake one day as I would love to go to space because when I was a kid this was something I wanted to be.

      Nikola Tesla! Once, Einstein got asked how he felt being the smartest man alive and he answered “I don’t know, I am not Nikola Tesla”.
      Tesla did a lot of pioneering and groudbreaking work in the late XIXth, early XXth century that allow us now to use electricity, listen to the radio, drive cars, control the telly with a remote, image the body through X-rays… He was a brilliant mind that invented more than 300 patents. I just wished I could have been in his brain for just one day just to see where all his ideas came from and how he processed them…

      Da vinci … a master of so much including scientific analysis. Loved his visual display of how things work.
