Rutherford was an entirely different brand of scientist. Despite being a physicist, Rutherford won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry and most of his greatest achievements came after, not before, he won the prize.
Einstein, Hawking, and Krauss fall neatly in the category of the most delinquent, lazy, and eccentric scientists in history.
The rule of thumb has always been that experimentalists with great theoretical foundation advanced science beyond its status quo, while theoreticians crippled it. Einstein, Hawking, and Krauss sold more books than making any useful gadget that could have aided humans in making better living.
