Bernard Lovell

Surprised to see only one other mention.

Gave his name to the telescope which was the largest steerable dish radio telescope in the world when it was built (in 1957), even now it is the third-largest (or 2nd, depending on how you look at it, 1st and 2nd are the same size).

Lots of work, research and developments.
