Curiouser and Curiouser
“Scientists hit the Jackpot” incorporates a selection of great scientists strutting their stuff. Archimedes
getting into his bath, nearly treads on a young Einstein discovering his famous formula. Copernicus
stares into the heavens on a very rickety platform. Mary Anning is gathering fossils and Pythagoras is
playing with his hypotenuse. My thoughts are about the magical moments of discovery for both artists
and scientists. Schrodinger, bottom right-hand corner, speculates on whether the cat is really in the box.
I share his worry.
