Fact of the Day: Science Teacher

H.G. Wells is considered one of fathers of science-fiction with his many novels. He knew actual science quite well too, as he spent some of his career teaching it. When he was a student, one of his professors was Thomas Henry Huxley, one of the 19th century's most respected biologists.
