Let us now praise famous men

Today, my thoughts are on Louis Pasteur and Francis Crick, so I’m linking you over to a piece I wrote on the two, “Visionaries of Science: An Inescapable, Forward-moving Logic.” Both men were true polymaths who changed several fields of science in ways that continue to reverberate.

Also, I’m adding a new book to the recommended reading: Newton and the Counterfeiter: The Unknown Detective Career of the World’s Greatest Scientist. I’m reading it now. While it addresses the story the title implies, it also provides an excellent biography of Newton and his major contributions to physics. That apple story just never gets old.
