Did you know that Darwin has a crater on the Moon? Or that Einstein was bad at maths? Did you know that Newton was such a nasty tempered man that almost no-one dared to go to his classes? Or that an Italian invented the telephone before Graham Bell did?

Taking advantage of the latest digital animation techniques, Science Gossip summarizes the careers of important figures from the History of Science. Although scientific rigor is respected, the point of view is more light hearted and amusing so that viewers receive short, dynamic doses of interesting information about each scientist, complemented by curious anecdotes. First class information, totally true, fully proved and lots of fun!
