Impact of great scientists' insights on society

Many great scientists do not invent anything by themselves, but their revolutrionary insights often offer new ideas or concepts to and pave the way for technologists to design and make usable objects later on. Some great scientists' discoveries also challenge and destroy existing beliefs in cultures or religions, although it may not be their intention. A simple lesson we can learn from the history of science is that great scientists are not always loved as they could be feared or even hated.
