The Titius-Bode Law

16 Jul TB Law

One of my favorite turned-out-to-be-not-true moments of all astronomical history: the Titius-Bode Law.

Makes me want to go join the Celestial Police.

Also, because you can almost not see it, my shirt says ‘Pluto/1930-2006/Revolve in Peace’.  😀

Philolaus and Antichthon

4 Jun Cosmogony

So I thought maybe I’d talk about my favorite old school Greek cosmogony today.  It’s pretty badass, but I don’t want to give anything away… watch the video!

Also, yes, I know that Galileo didn’t drop balls off the leaning Tower of Pisa.  It’s just a good depiction.  Hope you like it! Let me know what you think! And as always, if you have a suggestion for a video, please let me know.

See you next Tuesday!  🙂
