A new way for science popularization

Galileo's finger goes on display in Italy - an article by Daily Telegraph:

"The digit will be part of a landmark exhibition marking the 400th anniversary of his first observations of the skies...The finger was removed when the astronomer's body when it was exhumed from his unconsecrated grave and transferred to a mausoleum in a Florentine church in 1737. It is usually on display at Florence's Museum of the History of Science."

Do you really want to become a great scientist?
