Jean-Dominique Cassini aka Giovanni Domenico Cassini (1625-1712). An Italian astronomer who became director of the Paris Observatory and a naturalized Frenchman. For his early observations of Saturn's rings and moons NASA named its Cassini mission to Saturn in his honor. Cassini is still taking fabulous pictures of the Saturnian system.

Charles-Augustin de Coulomb (14 June 1736 – 23 August 1806) was a French physicist. He is best known for developing Coulomb's law, the definition of the electrostatic force of attraction and repulsion. The SI unit of charge, the coulomb, was named after him.
