Whewell’s Gazette

Your weekly digest of all the best of

Internet history of science, technology and medicine

Editor in Chief: The Ghost of William Whewell

Cornelis Bloemaert

Year 3, Volume #13

Monday 14 November 2016

EDITORIAL:

To be perfectly honest, given the events of the last week I didn’t see any point in continuing with this. It seems rather futile to publish a weekly #histSTM links list when the most powerful country in the world have just elected a crypto-fascist as their next president. But like that mythical orchestra on the Titanic, Whewell’s Gazette will in the face of disaster continue to bring you all of the histories of science, technology and medicine produced in the Internet over the last seven days.

Only a very small number of the elements, the building blocks of all matter, are named after scientist but two of these are named after women Curium named after Marie Curie and Meitnerium named after Lise Meitner. By a strange twist of fate both of them were born on 7th November, Curie in 1867 and Meitner in 1878.

Both of these remarkable women carved out scientific careers in a time when it was still extremely difficult for women to get an advanced education let alone one in the sciences. Both of them fought against prejudices based on their sex and in Meitner’s case her religion, she was Jewish. However despite all of the problems they faced both succeeded in establishing themselves as major scientific figures in the twentieth century.

Interestingly both of them worked on the boundary between chemistry and physics and both made major contributions to the development of the atomic age in which we now find ourselves. Curie in that she isolated and identified previously unknown radioactive elements and she, in fact, coined the term radioactivity. Meitner explained the mechanism of nuclear fission. In another interesting parallel both women worked in X-ray units during the First World War.

Both women received much recognition and many honours for their work, although only Curie received the Nobel Prize, and is the only person to receive two Nobel Prizes in two different scientific disciplines, physics and chemistry.

Wellcome Library: The horoscope of Iskandar Sultan

L0071319 Horoscope of Prince Iskandar. Credit: Wellcome Library, London. Wellcome Images images@wellcome.ac.uk http://wellcomeimages.org Horoscope of Prince Iskandar, grandson of Tamerlane, the Turkman Mongol conqueror. This horoscope shows the position of the heavens at the moment of Iskandar's birth on 25th April 1384. This is a fly leaf from the personal horoscope of Iskandar Sultan (died 1415), grandson of Timur, who ruled the province of Farsin, Iran. He is best known for his early military career and his patronage of the arts and sciences. Apart from being a horoscope, this manuscript is an exquisite work of art and an exemplary production of the royal kitabkhana 'publishing house' or 'workshop'. The manuscript of 1411 is lavishly illustrated and reflects the efforts of a whole range of specialists: astronomers (among them Imad ad-Din Mahmud al- Kashi), illuminators, gilders, calligraphers and craftsmen, and specialists in paper-making. The manuscript was bought in Iran in 1794 by John H. Harrington, who had started his career as a clerk in the East India Company. In 1932, it was auctioned at Sotheby's and bought for £6/15d by Sir Henry Wellcome who added it to his collection of Oriental books and manuscripts. 813/1411 Wellcome MS Persian 474 Published: - Copyrighted work available under Creative Commons Attribution only licence CC BY 4.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/
