1906
The American mathematician and philospher Kurt Gödel, of Moravian descent, was born in Brno (Moravia). In 1959, he won the Einstein Award. With his incompleteness theorems, he contributed to superseding the self-referential logic sought by neo-positivism. He worked on a proof for the existence of God within the framework of his studies on the foundations of logic.

1928
Gerald S. Hawkins was born in Norfolk. A physicist, astronomer, and archeologist, he was the first to identify Stonehenge (a prehistoric megalithic structure in England) as the first, and oldest, astronomical observatory known to man. The placement of its menhirs corresponds to principal points of celestial reference.
