Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger. (born July 30, 1947) is an Austrian and American former professional bodybuilder, actor, producer, director, businessman, investor, and politician. Schwarzenegger served two terms as the Governor of California.

Schwarzenegger won the Mr. Universe title at age 20 and went on to win the Mr. Olympia contest seven times. Schwarzenegger has remained a prominent presence in bodybuilding.

Schwarzenegger like so many others in the early 1970s joined with President Nixon in encouraging students to enter into the sciences. He made many contacts during this time and invested early in many private space enterprises.  

Schwarzenegger gained worldwide fame as a Hollywood action film icon. He was nicknamed the "Austrian Oak" and the "Styrian Oak" in his bodybuilding days, "Arnie" during his acting career and more recently "The Governator" (a mix of "Governor" and "The Terminator" – one of his best-known movie roles).
