Science is short on saints. History’s greatest scientists and science communicators are just people with a passion for empiricism. However, some have risen to the top with their discoveries, contributions, and dedication to science as a whole. Maybe the man who laid the groundwork for the digital revolution deserves a classic stained-glass painting too!
In celebration of this year’s Pi Day, Shutterstock commissioned five stained glass lithographs from artist Aaron Coleman for some of science’s most renowned names (using Shutterstock assets of course). The result is a collection that could hang in any science lab:
Ada Lovelace: The World’s First Computer Programmer
Nicola Tesla: Inventor, Engineer, Death-Ray Enthusiast
Alan Turing: The Father of Artificial Intelligence
Isaac Newton: Motion, Light, Calculus, and Pretty Much Everything Else by Age 25
Neil deGrasse Tyson: Astrophysicist, Communicator, Science Rock Star
Head over to Shutterstock to read Coleman’s descriptions of the thinking behind each piece.
Who is another scientist or thinker who deserves to be preserved in stained glass style?
