Évariste Galois . . . are there people like this anymore?

The talk by Scott Rickard was fascinating and one of the intrigues was the story of Evarist Galois. Chivalry at its most profound.

In similar circumstances, relative to the modern day, are there people like Galois anymore? So much to lose and perhaps not so much to gain.

As well, please comment on the music . . . I thought it was wonderfully ugly. I saw one comment that said it sounded like raindrops . . . and that's kind of beautiful.
