Regular Patron Vote #2
Tonight, instead of two candidates, we're offering three famous luminaries for your consideration. Only one can win and only you decide! As a reminder, voting will be open until 11pm on Wednesday with results announced in a subsequent update. Full rules are available in this update. And now, on to the candidates.
John Couch Adams (1819-1892) was a British mathematician and astronomer who correctly predicted the existence of the planet Neptune using only mathematics. Neptune's outermost ring is named after him.
Christian Doppler (1803-1853) was an Austrian mathematician known for the Doppler Effect which states that the observed frequency of a wave depends on the relative speed of the source and the observer. Doppler radar uses this effect as do echocardiograms in depicting blood flows.
William Thompson, better known as The Lord Kelvin, (1890–1895) was a Scots-Irish mathematical physicist and engineer who contributed to the development of thermodynamics, the telegraph, and many other areas of physics. He correctly determined the temperature of absolute zero and the Kelvin temperature scale is named after him in his honor.
On to the Voting!
Here is the link to the second poll. Voting will remain open until 11pm (Eastern Time) on Wednesday October 10th. We'll announce the winners when we introduce the next round of candidates on Thursday.
Thank you, as always, for your support.
