Look carefully the picture and guess the game name.
I grow up super tall. When I die, I give a mighty fall. What am I?
I'm green and I'm paper. I make people rob me, I can be your birthday present. I make you famous and without me, you're nothing. What am I?

Jean-Charles-Athanase Peltier

Born 22 Feb 1785; died 27 Oct 1845 at age 60.French physicist who discovered the Peltier effect (1834), that at the junction of two dissimilar metals an electric current will produce heat or cold, depending on the direction of current flow. In 1812, Peltier received an inheritance sufficient to retire from clockmaking and pursue a diverse interest in phrenology, anatomy, microscopy and meteorology. Peltier made a thermoelectric thermoscope to measure temperature distribution along a series of thermocouple circuits, from which he discovered the Peltier effect. Lenz succeeded in freezing water by this method. Its importance was not fully recognized until the later thermodynamic work of Kelvin. The effect is now used in devices for measuring temperature and non-compressor cooling units.«[Image: Peltier's atmospheric electricity gauge.]
