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

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned-

Oliver Heaviside:

1) Heaviside Layer

2) The formulation that we now call Maxwell's Equations

3) The shape of a rapidly moving electron: self-energy effect

4) Telegraph cable equations

5) Key results for enabling under-sea telegraph cables

6) Self taught

7) Didn't like quaternions (maybe not a plus)
