    Apr 22 2012: Carl Sagan: inspiring scientists who could explain science beautifully.
    Francis Crick: great scientist. Knew how to properly extract and abstract a problem in ways that we would be able to find answers.
    Linus Pauling: another brilliant scientist, won two Nobel prices. Huge impact in both chemistry and molecular biology.
