Who am I?

I was born in England in the very early 20th century. I tried to join the RAF in 1923, but they wouldn't have me because I was too small. I tried again after a spot of bodybuilding, but was told I could not have a second chance. So I tried again under an assumed name and got in!

I reached the rank of Air Commodore.

I and a German engineer worked independently on the same idea. But I'm the 'Daddy'.
If brains were made of dynamite, I wouldn't have enough to blow my nose.

It  certainly does C4M.

Sorry for the flying visit, but I must cut & thrust to close a conference this afternoon. Me thinks C4M has cracked it anyway.

Christoper Cockerell ?
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

Who am I?

I was born in Poland in 1945. As a child I was very ill, and nearly died.
In 1965, I enrolled in the University of Jenna, but after a few years I was imprisoned due to my political beliefs.
One of my trademarks is a direct reference to an oil painting by Rembrandt. I am flamboyant, and known for creating controversy wherever  I go.
I am best known for being able to ‘halt time’.

Nope not an architect. I am not quite as famous or well-known as the other scientists who have been on here,but nevertheless my contribution to science is very notable, especially the teaching of anatomy. I am problably better known for my controversy than my contibution to science.
I am still alive, and I have had several TV shows centered around my work.

Ok that might help out a bit more... I like keeping you all in suspenders. Ir is that suspense??
