Haste Let's talk Science!

Science! Let's talk about it. Biology, physics, chemistry, astrophysics ... whatever! Do you have a favourite branch of science? Any favourite scientists? Maybe just random part of science that you find neat?

That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. Itís not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us."

I'm most interested in astrophysics, it's why I study it. I think that Isaac Newton is probably the "greatest" physicist due to the scope of his achievements, but I also have a fond spot for scientists who are still able to successfully articulate science in a way that is comprehensive and yet comprehensible (e.g. Neil deGrasse Tyson and Carl Sagan). I just find the scale and depth of the Universe to be so jaw-droppingly terrifying and unequivocally beautiful and when you get to that realization, it compels you to find out more.
