what are two historical figures that contributed to the plate tectonic.

  • science -

    No person ever contributed to plate tectonics. The plates move all by themselves. :-)

    However, the theory was developed by several people, including Alfred Wegener. Check this article for his contribution plus the contributions of other people.
