Today’s Movie Scientist posts look at the lonely, often isolated nature of scientific work. The movies below examine movie scientists who work alone, or as part of a small, secluded team.
Thanks to all of you for your research, observations and hard work over these past three days. We were so impressed by your selection of films and what you wrote about them.
Also, a special thank you to Christina Wehner for being a wonderful co-host.
