The Giant’s Shoulders #48 is out!

The carnival was a little delayed, and my announcement of it is even more belated, but the 48th edition of The Giant’s Shoulders history of science blog carnival is up at Clerestories! Β In the carnival, you can read:

  • The history of previous transits of Venus;
  • The story of Mary Lacy, a shipwright who published her autobiography — in 1773;
  • A 1936 letter from a young girl to Albert Einstein, and his response;
  • A brief, painful history of dentistry;
  • and much more!

Thanks to Sienna for an excellent carnival!

We don’t yet have any hosts lined up, as far as I know, for the next few months of the carnival — if you’re willing to host at your blog, please please please let us know!
