Its Chemistry Week...

But you'd hardly notice it. The Royal Society is promoting a shoot out between two of the greatest physicists/mathematicians that have ever existed (Newton/Einstein), but no mention of any of our great chemists (eg Faraday after whom nearly every University chemistry block is named, although Birmingham has gone one better and has a statue...)
For what its worth my vote goes to Newton, having spent most of my PhD using newtonian mechanics to model the movements and interactions of atoms in molecules.
