The New £50 Note
11 December 2018
As reported in the
December issue of Ansible, the Bank of England's
longlist of past UK scientists who have been nominated to appear on
the new £50 note includes several people with SF
Encyclopedia entries. Here they are -- and is there anyone
else on the Bank of England list who should be included below?
Perhaps we need an entry for the late Stephen Hawking, who like
John Dee and Ada Lovelace below may not have written sf but became
an iconic figure in the genre (see the entry for Icons).
