Anders Celsius was a Swedish astronomer and professor who proposed the temperature scale that bears his name.
He helped prove that the earth is more of an ellipsoid flattened at the poles. (that also describes some Americans)
Anders once famously did not say “I’m here to chew bubblegum and kick Fahrenheit’s ass, and I’m all out of bubblegum.”
His invention is also called ‘the Swedish Thermometer‘–which sounds more like an adult toy than an instrument of science.
