NonNewtonian Scientists

I've been working on developing an annotated syllabus for diversity/inclusion/decolonisation in Physics and Astronomy. You can see the results here, and this page makes it easy for you to contribute: research a scientist, fill out the fields below, click the link, and you'll get the text I need to add someone to the syllabus. You can either email it to me ( or send me a PR. I'll gladly reformat them to fix any small mistakes, so don't let that stop you!

The scientist's name:

Contributors: (you can put your name here if you'd like it to be public, or leave it out if not!)

Description of the scientist:

Photo: please give me the URL of a photo of the scientist. I can make smaller versions, so don't worry about size. Feel free to include multiple URLs!

Click "Try it" to generate the combined text, then email me the results ( or send me a PR (again, the repository is here)!
