Darwin, young researcher

Happy Darwin Day!

In keeping with one of the recurring themes of this blog, Darwin was only about 22 when he set off on the H.M.S. Beagle on a trip around the world. The trip would make him famous for his book, Voyage of the Beagle.

The picture shows Darwin in 1840, several years after the Beagle voyage.
