I've just stumbled upon an fantastic travel ad for my native country, Romania:

It's a commercial, so it can't become scientifically boring. Yet, there's even more to Romania than that. Not mentioned in the clip:

The list of inventors misses some big names as well:

  • Hermann Oberth, the precursor of rocketry
  • Victor Babes, who published the first treaty of microbiology in the world, and was one of the forefathers of serum therapy
  • Anastase Dragomir, who basically invented the ejection seat in planes (I didn't know this one myself!)

There are many other Romanians who left their mark on the world; some you might have heard about are listed on Wikipedia, others at Famous Romanians.
