Yes, really. Again, the excception on your list is Tombaugh, as he did nothing wrong and is famous for his discovery of Pluto.

Would you have liked to have discovered Pluto yourself?

(Yes, I know. Your answer is NO, because if you had, you would be dead by now. But humor me please. I'm making a good point here.)

Yes, of course. I'm answering in good faith so you can make your point.

To shame science.
OK, let's see if you can provide an actual reason why this would follow. For example,

"Any endeavor should be shamed if its practitioners sometimes blunder;
Science is an endeavor whose practitioners sometimes blunder;
Therefore, science should be shamed."

Is that what you're saying?

Don't have one. Don't need one. I am an actual 'rugged individualist' without the need of intellectual crutches to get through my day.
Two questions:
  1. What makes you "rugged"? your claim you don't have a faith, or something else?
  2. I like that term: "intellectual crutches;" are you indicting science?
