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).
