It seems silly to me to create/play a game in which the objective is to identify scientists/scholars by their visage rather than their contributions. These weren't actors or another brand of pop celebrity.

Sorry to be a stick in the mud. I'll go back into my corner now.

They could have put some famous black scientists on the list, like Washington Carver or Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Brahe was by all accounts an extremely colorful character. He allegedly challenged a fellow student to a duel with swords in a dispute over who was the better mathematician. Brahe's nose was partially cut off, and he was said to wear a gold and silver replacement upon which he would continually rub oil. He fell out of favor when a new King came to power in 1588, and moved to Prague shortly thereafter. This is of great historical significance because this move would eventually make Brahe's data available to Kepler, who went to Prague also to become Brahe's assistant. Brahe is thought to have died when he contracted a urinary infection while attending a banquet hosted by a baron in Prague in which he drank extensively but felt that etiquette prevented him from leaving the table to relieve himself before the host left.
