How Italian Physicist Laura Bassi Became the First Woman to Have an Academic Career in the 18th Century

The practice and privilege of academic science has been slow in trickling down from its origins as a pursuit of leisured gentleman. While many a leisured lady may have taken an interest in science, math, or philosophy, most women were denied participation in academic institutions and scholarly societies during the scientific revolution of the 1700s. Only a handful of women — seven known in total — were granted doctoral degrees before the year 1800. It wasn’t until 1678 that a female scholar was...

How to understand Einstein's equation for general relativity

The Einstein field equations appear very simple, but they encode a tremendous amount of complexity. What looks like one compact equation is actually 16 complicated ones, relating the curvature of spacetime to the matter and energy in the universe. It showcases how gravity is fundamentally different from all the other forces, and yet in many ways, it is the only one we can wrap our heads around. Although Einstein is a legendary figure in science for a large number of reasons — E = mc², ...

What is light? The limits and limitlessness of imagination

Our senses and experiences are a good guide toward an intuitive understanding of how objects behave in the world.But this same guide led us horribly astray when it comes to understanding light.Light behaves like both a wave and a particle, a fact that our brains cannot really grasp.We all carry around a little physics laboratory in our heads. As we move around the world — climbing up stairs, lifting packages from Amazon, or riding our bicycles around corners — we use that internal view of physic...

20 Movies About Aliens That You Definitely Need To Watch

Films with aliens are rarely about the aliens themselves. These interstellar visitors usually serve as metaphors for human nature, a reflection of our politics, or a means to discuss strange natural phenomena. As Stephen King explained in "Danse Macabre," his non-fiction exploration of the horror genre, the things that frighten or confuse us change shape with each generation. The aliens of the '50s and '60s were Cold War relics that played on social paranoia. The aliens of the '80s reflected con...

17th Century Scientist Gives First Description of Alien Life: Hear Passages from Christiaan Huygens’ Cosmotheoros (1698)

Astrobiologists can now extrapolate the evolutionary characteristics of possible alien life, should it exist, given the wealth of data available on interplanetary conditions. But our ideas about aliens have drawn not from science but from what Adrian Horton at The Guardian calls “an engrossing feedback loop” of Hollywood films, comics books, and sci-fi novels. A little over three-hundred years ago — having never heard of H.G. Wells or the X-Files — Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens answ...

Solo: A Star Wars Story: Thandiwe Newton Reveals Her Character's Original Fate

It has been common knowledge for a while now that "Star Wars" movies have experienced a significant series of rocky productions in recent years. Almost every film since Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm (with the notable exception of Rian Johnson's "Star Wars: The Last Jedi") has suffered from sudden creative changeovers, atypical rewrites and re-edits, and rushed production schedules that came at the cost of a sound screenplay. In the minds of many, "Solo: A Star Wars Story" represents the post...
