I hereby declare that the 59th edition of The Giant’s Shoulders, the history of science blog carnival, is up at Something by Virtue of Nothing! This edition, centered around the theme of the Antikythera Mechanism, includes posts about:
- Did Isaac Newton slash the portrait of Robert Hooke?
- The Haunt of the Resurrection Men!
- Views of the dangers of masturbation for women,
- The weirdest weapons of history,
- and much more!
Many thanks to the hosts for an excellent carnival! The next edition, the five-year anniversary of the carnival (has it really been that long?), will be hosted by The Renaissance Mathematicus. As always, submissions can be sent to me, ThonyC, or the host blog — the latter two of which are the same this time!
