Marie Curie. Albert Einstein. Richard Feynman. Srinivasa Ramanujan. John Nash. Alan Turing. Rosalind Franklin. James Watson. Great minds that have blazed the trails of understanding whose larger than life stories speak to the human drama that swirls around profound discovery. Many of us, and the public more broadly, have come to know these figures through works of stage and screen. But what are the special challenges, pitfalls, opportunities and rare triumphs of seeking and synthesizing the essence of someone whose passion — quantum physics, number theory, nucleic acids, atomic species, computational design, gravitational phenomena — is so thoroughly foreign to the concerns of everyday life? Join a conversation among those who’ve been immersed in this challenge to explore the iconic journey of artistically and faithfully capturing the stories of science and the scientists who’ve made the stories.
