Occupational hazards!

June 6, 2008

Seed has come out with a list of ten scientists who were either killed or injured by their experiments:

Man owes a great debt to the scientists on this list; all of them died or were injured in their pursuit of knowledge. The advances they have all made to science are extraordinary and many of them paved the way for some of man’s greatest discoveries and inventions.

Though some of the names are familiar to me (Marie Curie, Davy, Bunsen, Faraday, Galileo), there are several of whom I have not heard of till I saw the list. Take a look!
