      Yeah I can understand how people who aren’t really into science aren’t familiar with him. For me personally, I was absolutely obsessed with his work when I was in high school and he has always been a idol to me. I remember reading all his books and just being so fascinated. He definitely had such an amazing personality too! Quite comical indeed!
