"Living popular scientist" poll

Who is your choice for living "popular" scientist?

Brian Greene...0
Freeman Dyson...3
Lawrence Krauss...0
Neil deGrasse Tyson...2
Stephen Hawking...3

Somewhat surprised. I suppose Hawking would lead...he is quite an icon. I expected Krauss to be at the bottom...claim to fame mostly with the physics of "Star Trek". But I did think that Greene would be favored with his "Elegant Universe" material. Tyson may have shot himself in the foot with the Pluto statement. Dyson is for older individuals expressing a little more wisdom.
