Which scientist should be on the new £50 note? El Reg weighs in – and you should vote, too

Norman Nescio

Re: Francis Bacon

Francis Bacon

Because he invented the scientific method.

Hmm, there are many inventors of the scientific method. There are a couple of other Englishmen who could be argued to be instrumental in that endeavour, apart from Francis Bacon (Elizabethan statesman).

You could choose Roger Bacon

Or even, Roger Bacon's earlier contemporary, Robert Grosseteste who would also be an interesting candidate, but probably infeasible.
