Happy Birthday to Robert Bunsen!

Where would we be without this gentleman?

Teacher, inventor, pioneer in photochemistry, discovered two elements (caesium and rubidium), investigator of emission spectra and finally an early worker in the field of organoarsenic chemistry.

Obviously, for someone who lived in the 1800s, I could never have met him, but I feel I would have enjoyed meeting him, and getting to take a class under him would have been a major bonus.
