Crispian Jago created this great subway map of the top scientists in the last 500 years. Subway Science plots the science celebrities by discipline (subway track), connections where appropriate and the shaded rings in the background show the timeline by century (the outer ring is the 20th century). Sir Isaac Newton crosses 5 lines…either a great multi-tasker or ADHD.
You can see that Crispian has tagged this as DRAFT version 0.37, and he already has a huge number of comments on his Science, Reason and Critical Thinking blog post. I expect there will be revised versions in the future.
Where’s Sheldon Cooper?!?
