The Bank of England is asking the great British public for nominations as to who should adorn the New £50 Note , the only proviso is the person you choose must be a real scientist and deceased.

For me there was only one choice , Stephen Hawking , but you may have a different candidate you would like to see on the new Fifty so if you're interested in registering your opinion here's the link to register your choice.

I think it's brilliant (in a sick way) that the £5 note features Churchill and people have requested Thatcher on the £50. A great fiscal juxtaposition.

until your post I didn't realise they should have contributed to science. I think it is set up for Hawkins.

I'll go for Tesla!

Like Isaac Fig Newton reanimated the dead? I think not. He was too busy screwing around with fruit.

I was also thinking Darwin but that might ruffel feathers.

I vote David Attenborough!
The man who brought Darwin to the masses in a way the laymen can understand.

Does Tsoukalos count as a scientist?

They should at least put his hair on a note.

No, but I second your choice for him to be on the £50 note.

Nah...that was that guy from sherwood forest.

Captain Cook is that guy who sells fishsticks I believe.

James Cook was an explorer not a scientist so doesn't qualify for consideration.

a reply to: GreenGunther

Happy to say David Attenborough is still alive so doesn't qualify.
