The Giant’s Shoulders #42 is out!

The 42nd edition of The Giant’s Shoulders, the history of science blog carnival, is up at PACHSmörgåsbord!  In it, you can see maps of the Moon that date back to the 17th century, how to write the square root of 2 in ancient Babylon, and a discussion of the “dancing fever”!  Thanks to Darin for once again putting together an excellent carnival!

The deadline for the next edition is January 15th, but we don’t have a host yet!  We desperately need hosts for all upcoming editions in 2012!  If you can help, please contact  Thony C at Renaissance Mathematicus or Dr SkySkull at Skulls in the Stars, or leave a comment here.
