Another young turk

Watson poster
This poster was another riff on the Goodall poster I posted earlier, trying to remind students that a lot of significant scientific discoveries are made by people when they're young. In mathematics, it's almost cliché.

The downside of making such posters is that they can be quite depressing for the maker. As Tom Lehrer said, "It is a sobering thought, for example, that when Mozart was my age, he had been dead for two years!"
