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.
