Millions of people will be crying tonight as they say goodbye to The Big Bang Theory. While the show has certainly seemed like a perpetual motion machine of comedy, it has decided to come to a halt after 12 seasons, 277 episodes, and seven Emmy Awards. It will definitely be an emotional night, as we watch these characters for the last time. As Kaley Cuoco told us, that means the show’s done its job, because it took these unlikely characters and turned them into beloved figures over the years.

Amazingly, the cast does feature a real-life scientist — Mayim Bialik holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience. And yes, the show does try its best to deal in real scientific phenomenon. Johnny Galecki may not be a real-life science expert, but he’s extremely proud of the fact that his character and the show have inspired a large number of young viewers to pursue college degrees in the sciences.
