Great Moments in Science--If Twitter Existed at the Time

Sweet, delightful Twitter--where the raw emotions and unformed thoughts of humanity are made available to the entire world. It has been in existence since only 2006, so few of the greatest minds have had access to it. But what if, instead, scientists across history had used it. What Twitter conversations would they have had?

Dean Burnett of The Guardian recreated 12 great moments from scientific history as Twitter conversations, including Erwin Schrödinger's short-lived cat kenneling service and Jonas Salk's development of a polio vaccine.
