No, there isn't. That may be a popular myth, but it certainly isn't a scientific myth.   


The myth is reinforced by a string of Hollywood movies where a lone scientist saves the world from disaster of cosmic proportions.


Just as I thought. You get all your science from old movies.

OK, a popular scientific myth.

No, a popular myth about science. An enlightened and well-regulated mind does not condescend to concern itself with popular myths.
