Scientists’ Last Supper

After Battlestar Galactica and LOST Last Suppers, this may not seem all that interesting. It also seems to reflect the mistaken idea that a “last supper” is a get-together of all the great figures connected with a particular tradition. This illustrates well why understanding cultural references before adapting them is important. Although I can get Stephen Hawking as Albert Einstein’s “beloved disciple,” I don’t think the person who made this was even aware of depicting Louis Pasteur in the role of Judas! But I thought I’d share it nevertheless, since it seems like it might generate discussion.
