English polymath. Young made notable scientific contributions to the fields of vision, light, solid mechanics, energy,physiology, language, musical harmony, and Egyptology. He "made a number of original and insightful innovations" in the decipherment of Egyptian hieroglyphs (specifically the Rosetta Stone) before Jean-François Champollion eventually expanded on his work. He established the principle of interference of light and thus resurrected the century-old wave theory of light. He was mentioned by, among others, William Herschel, Hermann von Helmholtz, James Clerk Maxwell, and Albert Einstein.
He died 10 May 1829.
