“Charging the Void”

BibliOdyssey has two great posts, Charging the Void I and Charging the Void II, with cosmological diagrams and engravings of various vacuum experiments from the work of Otto von Guericke, especially the Magdeburg hemispheres. When I get the chance, I’ll upload the images onto Wikipedia.

Hopefully someday BibliOdyssey will do a post or two featuring my Kunstformen der Natur scans.

Also, in the near future, I’ll be posting a report on the recent Terry Lectures at Yale, on Creationism and Intelligent Design. And maybe a report on my orals fields, and maybe a report on my history of science-related eBay purchases, and the hidden, miscatalogued natural history prints hidden up in the Sterling Library stacks. And probably not a report on my first semester teaching, at least not until the semester is over (I’m already getting hits for search terms like “sage ross yale ta”).

  1. I precisely had to say thanks once more. I am not sure the things I would have implemented without the actual creative ideas contributed by you directly on my subject matter. It absolutely was a very distressing circumstance in my opinion, but viewing a expert manner you managed the issue made me to weep for fulfillment. I will be happier for the advice and then sincerely hope you know what a powerful job you are always carrying out educating the rest through the use of your site. I am sure you have never encountered any of us.
