Science is not for everyone. It is complex, minute and for most people, it just passes over their head (not to complain, or anything!). But there are some people who are born with the curiosity to venture into science. They see the beauty of the universe in the numbers and theorems that seem complicated to the normal eye. Their brains seem wired to something greater that helps them understand and analyse things ranging from the constituents of an atom to the workings of a supermassive black hole. From the life in the depths of Mariana Trench to the presence of water in the other planets, there is nothing that escapes their scrutiny. Interesting bunch of people, these scientists!
If you are one (you lucky smartass!), or want to be one, or are just a normal person who wants to know how the grass looks on the other side, you should watch the following films based on the life of some renowned scientists. You are going to love these movies if you happen to love Stephen Hawking.
15. Giordano Bruno (1973)
The influence of the Church had created a tense atmosphere for scientists, freethinkers and philosophers in Europe. Giordano Bruno was one such man. Known for his revolutionary theories in science and his open-minded philosophies, he was rebuked by the Church and was declared an enemy to it. Running for his life, he hid in Venice. But he was constantly surrounded by people who wanted his head for heresy.
