Leonardo da Vinci's Birthday

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) is considered by many people to be one of the greatest artists who ever lived. During his lifetime, he was famous for his artwork and skill as an engineer: since his death, he has become equally celebrated for his scientific knowledge and his inventions, many of which were hundreds of years ahead of their time.
