This is my first sporcle quiz! I hope you all enjoy it :) Comments and corrections are much appreciated :D My apologies for any mistakes!

Great quiz, really enjoyed it. You could accept Crick Watson without the 'and' however. Hope you contribute more fun quizzes in the future!

Good quiz. Though I'd never heard of Gilbert N. Lewis. But now I have! And I had no idea Mendeleev looked so...so Rasputinish.

good quiz. However I don't like the inclusion of Edison as a scientist without Maxwell, Schrodinger, Pauling, Heisenberg, or Dirac

Interesting fact about Edison: he was a total douche (in particular, he ruined Tesla, who was a much better scientist than Edison could have ever hoped to be)

Lewis and no Lavoisier ? I would have liked to see Schrödinger too. Maybe for the next one ! Very good idea !

Interesting fact about Watson: he was and still is a douche.

Good idea for a quiz. There's also a bunch of opportunity to have more installments. You could include Sagan, Dawkins, DeGrasse-Tyson, Brahe, Feynman, and many, many others.

How about replacing Watson and Crick with Rosalind Franklin? She did the real work of finding out the structure of DNA, they mostly just publicized it and took credit.

good quiz though a few more would be better.

You should try the second one then! There are lots more in that one, though it is a touch harder!
