Science Quote – Daniel J Levitin on Science and Music

“The more I learned about music and about science the more fascinating they became, and the more I was able to appreciate people who are really good at them. Like science, music over the years has proved to be an adventure, never experienced exactly the same way twice. It has been a source of continual surprise and satisfaction for me. It turns out science and music aren’t such a bad mix.” – Daniel J Levitin, This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession

Darwin’s Relentless Urge to Collect

“One day, on tearing off some old bark, I saw two rare beetles, and seized one in each hand. Then I saw a third and new kind, which I could not bear to lose, so I popped the one which I held in my right hand into my mouth. Alas! It ejected some intensely acrid fluid, which burnt my tongue so that I was forced to spit the beetle out, which was lost, as was the third one.”
Darwin wouldn’t let anything stop him from collecting!

Michael Faraday’s Birthday

“It is right that we should stand by and act on our principles; but not right to hold them in obstinate blindness, or retain them when proved to be erroneous.” Michael Faraday was born on this day in 1791. He made many discoveries in chemistry and physics and is best known for his work with electricity and magnetism. He inspired interest in science from the public with a series of lectures he gave to young people in the 1800’s. The tradition of these lectures still continues to this day at the Royal Institution in London, and scientists like Richard Dawkins, Carl Sagan, and David Attenborough have taken part.
