This post is a celebration of human ingenuity. Armed with chocolate for me
Instead of looking back at 2020, (ugh) let’s gaze further back. Since this is science blog, I’m giving a nod to 10 great scientists and their discoveries. Many of these scientists had messy lives. Many of the discoveries were accidental. Most of them are dead.
That means they can’t refute the gossip I’m about to throw around about them! Let’s take a peek…
