High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A scientific celebrity is a person who gains celebrity status in the media by representing their own scientific interests. Such promotion can be self-serving in nature, can be at the behest of governmental or corporate interests or even to promote the science involved. With every new scientific discovery various people have long been known for their contributions to knowledge, medicine and methods of transportation. Although this phenomenon has undergone a recent upsurgence (coincidental with the rise of celebrity culture) it is by no means new and the list of scientific celebrities is long. Some media presenters such as Richard Attenborough, Patrick Moore and David Attenborough have scientific qualifications, however they are primarily known for their own presentations of scientific topics rather than their contributions to the advance of scientific knowledge. Additionally, some celebrities are known for their roles in the media, but are not so renowned for their advances in scientific knowledge, for example Mayim Bialik, Child star from television show, "Blossom" who has a PhD in neuroscience.
