One more musician-scientist: William Herschel

William Herschel from Wikipedia

Now, my exposure to him is as as astronomer, especially regarding stellar temperature and things related to that.

Twenty four symphonies. 🙂 Early starter, with a musical family and of course the ubiquitous equally brilliant sister (Caroline Herschel) who has been totally forgotten by history.

One more nail in the coffin of the perpetually undead belief, beloved by many artists and few scientists, that the brain comes in two halves that never talk to one another.
