Insanely Great Science

Think science for the new £50 note


A slightly different post.

The Bank of England are looking for nominations for who should be on the new £50 note and you can make your nomination here.

You can nominate as many people as you like. But anyone who appears on the new £50 note must: have contributed to the field of science, be real – so no fictional characters please, not be alive - Her Majesty the Queen is the only exception, have shaped thought, innovation, leadership or values in the UK, inspire people, not divide them.

Firstly I'm delighted to see a scientist be suggested and reading the comments in various news outlets I'm staggered by the number of scientists who have been suggested.

For my part I've nominated Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage, there is plenty of room on a £50 note for two figures and computing needs both software and hardware.
