It all started with recognition of Polish scientists. You can read about their fate in the book “Academy of Superheroes”. But such heroes as scientists live and have lived in every country.
“Academy of Superheroes” is a unique project. He is the first to talk about the fate of so many Polish scientists. Additionally, each of the more than 30 characters has a portrait. Physicists, chemists and naturalists are shown as superheroes. Their skills are the distinguishing attributes.
Why this way? Because in our opinion, they are the superheroes who really influenced the fate of the world. Discoveries or achievements of Polish scientists helped save human life and changed the course of history. Find out more here.
