    The Bank of England has announced that the next version of the £50 note will feature a scientist, and it’s asking the public to submit names.

    The Bank said that nominations can include anyone who worked in any field of science including astronomy, biology, bio-technology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, medical research, physics, technology or zoology.

    Submit your nominations by December 14 at:

    So, how about Sir Patrick Moore, who probably had a greater influence in attracting people to a branch of science including myself – Astronomy – than anyone else !

    Good to see scientists getting this recognition and thanks for the link. It was always a shame that Isaac Newton made it to the pound note just before it was scrapped. I wonder if they could bring him back for the £50?

    I like the “draw your own banknote” link. I could do that. I doubt my local shop would accept it though!
