SCIENCE IS SO COOL LIKE
"We are like dwarfs sitting on the shoulders of giants. We see more, and things that are more distant, than they did, not because our sight is superior or because we are taller than they, but because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours."

This tumblr's for all the great men and women of science for whom we owe our current understanding of the natural world; their achievements, their failures, and even their quirks, we celebrate them all.

For Science. For Inquiry. For Humanity.

Werner Heisenberg, theoretical physicist.  Heisenberg is best known for boggling the minds of chemistry students with the Heisenberg uncertainty principle and won the Nobel Prize in physics for his bamf contributions to quantum mechanics.  He met his wife, Elizabeth, at a piano concert because they were classy mofos, and Wolfgang Pauli(of Pauli exclusion principle fame) made nerdy physics puns about the birth of Heisenberg’s twin children.  Also he was adorable in hats.
