      I agree with Carol, Marie Curie was remarkable. As I work with computers, scientists who did early work with them are some of my favourites, I think Ada Lovelace is also really interesting, she wrote the first computer program – long before computers as we know them existed!

      I have a soft spot for Alan Turing as well, he was so brilliant and helped end the second world war, but his life was very sad. I recommend the film about him ‘The Imitation Game’

      I’d say Lise Meitner, but then Fern pointed out Alan Turing and the movie Imitation Game – I’d say my favourite “movie scientist” would be John F. Nash. The movie they made about his is called “A beautiful mind” and it’s one of those movies I never get tired to rewatch.
