In his look at five great scientists, Livio, Baltimorebased astrophysicist, “A Curious Mind” blogger, and awardwinning author of The golden ratio, demonstrates that error, too, can be a breakthrough for the advance of knowledge. He focuses on the achievements of Darwin, Lord Kelvin, Linus Pauling, Fred Hoyle, and Einstein by way of wrong turns they made along the way.
