Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.
Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin, a truly extraordinary woman.

So I take it she was given the Hedy Lamarr/Rosalind Franklin treatment? Fucking assholes. So you know what?
BADASSLADYSIGNALBOOSTGO!

I GOT SO MAD ONCE I FOUND OUT ABOUT ROSALIND FRANKLIN.

So, why doesn’t EVERYBODY know this?

Someone asked me to post these two companion pieces together so it was easier to reblog them.

General Assorted Um… turned 1 today!
CRAP IT’S BEEN A WHOLE YEAR?!?!?!?! I am getting old…
I know I haven’t been on here much lately. My latest net obsession is pinning art on Pinterest so my ramblings have been noticeably absent.
Still a BIG THANKYOU to the people who have been following me here. I do appreciate the interest you’ve taken in the incoherent ramblings of a grumpy old fart.
And I will be back here sometime soon as I have a rant forming that, this being the digital age, I feel the need to share with all and sundry.
See you guys then. :)

Wonder Woman #24 cover by Cliff Chiang

Finally got around to reading this series and have been thoroughly enjoying it. However I don’t think they should be ignoring the Superman/Wonder Woman relationship as I personally think it offers a lot of interesting ideas against the backdrop of the gods, the notions of family, relationships etc. Seems a missed opportunity to me.
