Astrophysicist Jesse Greenstein was the first to correctly describe the nature of quasars, co-discovered cosmic radio noise emanating from our galaxy and proved that stars in globular clusters have fewer heavy elements and thus predate the sun.

As a boss, though, Greenstein was perhaps even more stellar. In most of about 400 papers he co-wrote, he listed his junior co-authors’ names before his own.
