From TFA: "...his wrap sheet..."

The editorial board needs an editor. Just saying.

Clearly the solution is to superimpose naming it after Schrödinger the physicist and not naming it after Schrödinger the paedophile.

Agreed:

Should we name theatre's after acclaimed physicists?

Wiki details here, pasted here for those who don't want to click:

Schrödinger repeatedly sexually abused young women.[42][43][44][45] "Poor things," Schrödinger wrote about the young women and girls he had sexually abused. "They have provided me for my life's happiness and their own distress. Such is life."[46] Schrödinger recorded his sexual "conquests" in a diary he called "Ephemeridae" (mayflies), an order of insects with very short adult lifespans.[43] He justified his preference for young girls by saying that their innocence was the ideal counterpart to his natural genius.[42] One of his victims, aged between 12 and 17, became pregnant by him, had an abortion and became infertile after the abortion.[47] These acts of abuse were reported in 1989 by Walter J. Moore (1918-2001) in his biography of Schrödinger as a "Lolita complex", and described by John Gribbin in his 2012 book as "fondling and cuddling".[47]

Yep. As we dig into people, especially their private lives, it seems like the more accomplished people are a$$holes. Doesn't matter about race, or gender, that famous person was probably an a$$hole.

While he was a brilliant physicist, who considers Schrodinger a "hero"?

So put a big box over the name on the wall, and until the box is opened you won't know if it's named after a physicist or a pedophile.

/Of course, you then have to consider it named after both a physicist and a pedophile, which is accurate.  So, yeah, maybe rename it.

Pretty much any scientist you know the name of who died before 1970 or so was probably a racist, a misogynist, a sex pest, a pedophile, and/or if the name is German-but-not-Jewish, pretty decent odds of being a straight up Nazi or at least a sympathizer.

Dont worry about it.  Most great men are also great aholes.  Einstein was a sh&t to his wife.

If these people ever start reading more history, they'll end up burning all the history books.

Einstein cheated on his first wife with his secretary, then married his cousin and cheated on her.

Those physists are sexual dogs! Let's hope people don't find out or they'll ban radiation.

You can't know if someone's a pedophile or not until they try and split hairs with ephebophile, in which case you definitely know they're a pedophile.

This is certainly awkward.

Worse yet, Einstein's wife did a lot of the grunt work that led to the 1905 relativity paper, and he did not give her any credit.
His divorce settlement forced him to give all of the prizer money from the Nobel to her, so she had to have been a pretty significant role.

/She did not, as the conspiracy theory goes, actually write it. It wasn't a Rosalind Franklin situation.
