Scientist Linus Pauling would turn 110 today, February 28, 2011. The scientist won the Nobel Prize twice (in two different fields and shares that feat with Marie Curie) and was one of the first scientists to work in the fields of quantum chemistry and molecular biology. Pauling’s academic advisers were Niels Bohr and Erwin Schrodinger. He was also an advocate for peace and even though he was raised Lutheran, he announced he was an atheist 2 years before his death in 1994. Such an inspiration in every way. Happy birthday Linus!
