I think the "Questions and Answers" part of UniverseToday is best for this topic, but please, feel free to move it if you think otherwise. Anyway, this is a forum for telling others who your role-model, idol, pooh-bah is and why. Mine, as some of you already spectulate, is Dr. Miguel Alcubierre. He published a paper that took Warp Drive from a rubber-and-glue sci fi concept with no real science, to a theorectical physics metric that could in theory, propel a ship at faster-then-light speeds. Though we might have different role-models, there are a few people that almost all of us wish to become like (and if you don't, you should be damned to pergotory until you repent). People like Carl Sagen and GRAND IODOLE EINSTEIN . Who's your role-model and why?
