Money and Science

Writing grants all the time (another deadline coming Monday, yikes) made me think about money and science, but in a rather oblique way: coins and notes commemorating scientists and scientific achievements. While looking for examples, I found that Alex Pasternack from Motherboard.TV has done a really nice and thorough job already. So have a look, really cool collection of notes & coins commemorating scientists. If you know of any other science-inspired currency, please link to a pic in the comments.

    Less well known: Aydin Sayili – who apparently received the world’s first PhD degree for scientific history from Harvard University – is shown on a five Turkish Lira note which also features a (left-handed :) DNA helix: http://www.netyazari.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/5tl_aydin_sayili.jpg
