I'm busy with a particularly gnarly piece of work right now, so as a place marker here are some scientist action figures. From left to right: Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Nikola Tesla. I don't know if Madame Curie is glow-in-the-dark, whether Charles Darwin really did play Hamlet, or why Tesla looks like Edgar Allan Poe, but they're kind of cute all the same. Which other scientists deserve a figure? First on my list would be Galileo, whose made his first observations of Jupiter's moons four hundred years ago, and was the prime mover in displacing us from the centre of the universe.
