Burial site of DaVinci, Marie Curie, Newton, Gailileo, Copernicus

I was telling someone about a church in Florence where about a dozen of the most amazing scientists are buried and I don't remember the name or all the scientists. Does anyone know the name of the church or have more information.

I stumbled upon it several years ago and it was the highlight of my trip to be in a church that had the tombs of these amazing scientists. There were others there too - Michelangelo. Thanks!

Santa Croce Church, Florence. Also buried there: Rossini (composer), Marconi (Physicist), Machiavelli (yeah, him), Dante Alighieri (poet) and others. Wow!
