Here is a little quiz I have put together. Please answer via PM.

What follows is 12 pictures of scientific type people, all you have to do is identify them. They range from easy to imposible so I'll be surprised if anybody can get the lot. PM me your answers by 9pm (BST) Saturday, up till then you are free to make comments on this thread, just don't give away the answers...if you know them.

All the pictures are taken from their main picture on Wiki.

They are real people, who are alive or in some cases dead and lots of them had died before latex masks existed !!

I got Planck, Darwin, Bohr, Halley & Kelvin.

I thought the pic of Tesla was from an advert for cheap wigs, Bell was Santa's long lost brother, Rosalind Franklin was that woman who used to appear with Muffin the mule, and Milikan was a comedy tie salesman.  :P
