Charles Darwin was a naturalist and geologist. His father was a doctor and his mother was a physician. He was pushed into Edinburgh Medical School to pursue his doctorate under the pressure of his father. His lack of interest in medicine led his father to enroll him to attain a B.A degree. He chose his mainstream interest in botany and got distinction.  Darwin spent his five years discovering the species around the world in HMS Beagle, a naval survey ship. He was there to collect the animals and birds specimens from the countries and islands. Visiting Galapagos Islands changed his entire life and gave him a purpose.  After returning to his place, he started to study different species collected around the world in detail.

His theory was rejected when he was alive. But today it is accepted and his theory became the basis for genetics. He has received awards like the Copley medal, Royal medal, and many.
