    Scientists the world over are working to try to unravel the mysteries of the novel coronavirus, so I thought it would make a good contest to look at scientists in the SF&F realm.

    Our theme for this contest is The People of Science in SF&F. So scientists, science officers, professors of science, etc. It doesn't even have to be modern or future science; a character who dedicated themselves to scientific endeavours of their time would still be eligible--for example, the maesters in GoT.

    Everyone may enter up to two entries. Your entries should be a maximum of 200 x 200 pixels, and 1 MB. Your entries have to be SFW. Please identify the character(s) in your entry, and what movie/show/comic/video game they come from. The contest will be open for about a week.

    To start us off, here are my entries:

    Cosima Niehaus, Orphan Black

    Professor Maximillian Arturo, Sliders

    Have fun! :techman:

    Please don't forget to identify your character(s) and source. (I'm guessing Iron Man?)

    Last call! I'm planning to post the poll tomorrow night, so you've got about 24 hours left if you would like to enter. Still lots of science types available to choose from! ;)

    Hypothesis: Introducing a poll into the environment will cause people to vote in it.

    Let's see what we can do about proving this!
