Bernhard Riemann- a little history:

"Riemann was the second of six children, shy, and suffered from numerous nervous breakdowns. Riemann exhibited exceptional mathematical skills, such as fantastic calculation abilities, from an early age, but suffered from timidity and a fear of speaking in public. In high school, Riemann studied the Bible intensively, but his mind often drifted back to mathematics. To this end, he even tried to prove mathematically the correctness of the Book of Genesis. His teachers were amazed by his adept ability to solve complicated mathematical operations, in which he often outstripped his instructor's knowledge." -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernhard_Riemann——

Here are few websites that talk about how the Riemann Hypthothesis is one of Number Theory's unsolved mysteries. According to the first website, the Clay Mathematics Institute is offering a prize of $1,000,000 for a valid proof!!!!
