Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)
OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.
Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.
Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.
Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”
Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).
Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.
Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.
Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.
Oh thank you~! (▰˘◡˘▰)
As long as I have a sketchbook on my person, I will draw whatever looks aesthetically pleasing or conceptually intriguing, and I’ve vaguely categorised each of my sketchbooks - one of them will be catered more for loose sketches, whereas another might be for refined (in my case longer than ten-minute) sketches. I’m a chaotic mixture of tidy and messy, so there’s no law written in blood or anything I follow by.
I made it a habit to draw as soon as something caught my interest, so it isn’t a special effort to keep filling page after page, and I definitely enjoy eliminating white space. It’s like a game. But I do literally scowl at blank pages. My nemesis! :D
Time-wise, I’ll prioritise whatever idea/image comes into my mind or sight. That way, I refuse to feel awkward even if I’m with company (I use the ‘artist and writer at work here’ excuse anyway and nine out of ten I get away with it). I shan’t go on any longer, or I’ll never stop ^^ Thank you for your question and hope that answered what you were wondering!
What if there are actually multiple souls in your body but you’re the most powerful one so you have control over your body and the voices you hear in your head are just the weaker souls talking to you.
and maybe people with schizophrenia don’t have an assertive soul so all of the souls are fighting to take over
both of you write a book together
writers are people who have acknowledged and made friends with their extra souls
did you mean: the Hybrid Chronicles?
Catching up with One Piece … chapter 731 and that ending …
I’m so proud of cute little K, so glad she made a comeback. (´༎ຶ∇༎ຶ`)
Then I read to the real end … (╯´༎ຶ∇༎ຶ）╯︵┻━┻ I knew you were alive bab~y!!!
I adore the Namimori Trio (Tsuna, Gokudera & Yamamoto). I would love to see them compared with their badass mode x everyday (goofy) faces; or in general just Tsuna ❤ in HDWMode would be lovely ^^
