I was a little slow in posting about it, but the 58th edition of the history of science blog carnival, The Giant’s Shoulders, is up at Asylum Science! In this edition, you can read about:
- cosmonauts who had to survive the Siberian forest after surviving space,
- fixing astronomical equipment with earwax,
- Victorian issues with masturbation,
- Margaret Thatcher’s dubious connection with soft-serve ice cream,
- and much more!
Many thanks to Mike Finn and Jenn Wallis for putting together an excellent carnival!
The next edition of The Giant’s Shoulders will appear at the Something by Virtue of Nothing blog on 16th May 2013. Posts are due for submission by May 15, and can be submitted directly to the host, to ThonyC at The Renaissance Mathematicus or to me right here!
