Please tell me your favourite vignettes in the comments for a final proposal in the updates!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why not join Nikola Tesla as he experiments with electricity, or accompany Rosalind Franklin as she discovers the structure of DNA!

Currently proposed are 8 scientist vignettes, of which 3 or 4 (voted for by you) could be included in the set:

  • Charles Darwin is observing a monkey in a tree as he ponders his theory of evolution, struggling for acceptance from the people.
  • Alan Turing, pioneering computer scientist,is in his lab working on a code-breaking computer.
  • Mary Anning is down in Dorset trying to extract some fossils.
  • Marie Curie is in her lab with her equipment as she experiments with radioactivity
  • Thomas Edison is in his workshop with his incandescent lamp and gramophone
  • Nikola Tesla is in his lab as he observes his Tesla coil behind the safety of a Faraday cage.
  • Rosalind Franklin is using x-ray crystallography to observe the structure of DNA.
  • Lise Meitner is experimenting with atoms in her lab as she comes up with her theory of nuclear fission.
