Benito Mussolini, Dwight D Eisenhower (who also brought highways to America), Thomas Paine, Horace Mann, Kofi Annan, Marcus Brutus, Lee Harvey Oswald, Gavrilo Princip.

Thanks for being the first to respond. I actually typed and deleted highway for Eisenhower a few times. I left it off because it didn't seem to be of international importance like NASA is. I tried to frame stuff internationally when possible. I know much of what America does has an international impact.
