Have fun looking at that for several hours. Don't get lost in the wikipedia links!

Also, note the three main nodes are Gallilei, Newton and Darwin. Those are very much like the fathers of science.

Didn't expect to see J.M. Smith on there.  I knew his work touched on evolutionary biology, but I never understood it was that important.

A person could get a good education on the history of their field, just by reading all the wikipedia articles of names on that lineage of science.

They could also get lost in wikipedia for years.  That thing is more dangerous than a TVTropes link.
