The Giant’s Shoulders #25 is officially out at The Dispersal of Darwin, and it marks the two year anniversary since the first carnival! In honor of it, Michael has put together a truly massive list of posts for the month, celebrating the history of science — many thanks to him for assembling it! If you follow me on Twitter, I’ll try and post some links to highlights from the carnival throughout the day, even though everything is worth reading!
The next month’s edition will be hosted by Scicurious at Are You Scicurious? It will also be a special event, as we have dubbed it to be a special “fools, failures, and frauds” edition — it’s time to commemorate the history of those scientific discoveries that didn’t work out as intended! Though all entries on the history of science will still be accepted, consider submitting a history of science post that describes (a) some really stupid or crazy scientific research (or researchers), (b) research that didn’t work out as intended or expected, (c) research that was completely fraudulent. I’ll have more to say about this special edition in the next few days, as well as a few other bits of news.
Entries can be submitted through blogcarnival.com or directly to the host blog, as usual!
