Wouldn’t it be fun: a learned 1800s physicist is in the process of saying that heavier than air flight is impossible, right when a gull flies over and drops a load on his head.
>…BTY - I remember Connections and its sequel (???) very well and loved them, but for a history of science that is that interesting I dunno any others. Do you?...
The sequel is called The Day the Universe Changed. Both mini-series were excellent.

BillW, I have both books, and both are excellent. Burke stayed fairly close to the script when he made the TV series. I think of them as Britain’s answer to Sagan’s Cosmos.
