Have Some Science In Your Art With This Wonderful Animated Short

Why Do I Study Physics? (2013) from Xiangjun Shi on Vimeo.

In this short film animator/physics enthusiast Xiangjun Shi uses art to explain why she loves physics so much. Though visually amazing, my favorite thing about this video just might be its running time: 3:14.

This Bra Tweets Whenever It’s Unhooked

What a world we live in. Every time this bra by OgilvyOne Athens is unhooked it tweets a reminder to @TweetingBra‘s followers to perform monthly breast self-exams. Awww. I was prepared to be all curmudgeonly about the idea of a tweeting article of clothing, but then it’s actually for a good cause. I won’t be so kind when someone invents a pair of pants that tweets a bad pick-up line every time they’re unzipped.

Actually… I might. That sounds ridiculous and amusing.

Rosalind Franklin. Watson and Crick. Rap Battle. [VIDEO]

Rosalind Franklin was a biophysicist whose discoveries about the structure of DNA were integral to the early work of genetics pioneers James Watson and Francis Crick. Actually, saying they were “integral” doesn’t really get across how said discoveries were stolen and Watson and Crick got much of the credit that Franklin rightly deserved. Now, decades after Franklin’s death, the three of them get to hash it out in a rap battle by seventh graders from Oakland, CA’s KIPP Bridge Charter school. It is very possibly the best thing I’ve seen all week, and I saw Tom Hiddleston dancing yesterday.

Scientists Organize Mass Wikipedia Edit in Honor of Ada Lovelace Day

I’ll admit, the first thing that springs to my mind when people mention organized Wikipedia edits is Wikipedia vandalism, perhaps because it’s just a bit more exciting than the alternative. That is, getting a bunch of people together with viable sources and references and collaborating on expanding or creating Wikipedia entries on subjects that are often overlooked by the core community of Wikipedia editors.

That’s what Maia Weinstock and Anne Fausto-Sterling do every October 15th: they organize an edit-a-thon to improve the encyclopedia’s coverage of female scientists. And it’s that time of year again.
