Charles Robert Darwin (February 12, 1809–April 19, 1882) was an English naturalist who explored the world by sea and came back with the theory of evolution, which was published in his book On the Origin of Species. Darwin proposed that all species come from common ancestors and gradually change through a process called natural selection. Just like Darwin, our Members are visionaries who see a new path forward for science.
