EDITORIAL:

April Fools Day is past and the seriousness returns to the world with the latest edition of Whewell’s Gazette the weekly #histSTM links list with all of the histories of science, technology and medicine that we could sieve out the Internet over the last seven days.

Sunday was the 370th birthday of the Early Modern German entomologist and artist Maria Sibylla Merian.

Born to the Frankfurt branch of the Swiss Merian family a large seventeenth-century European publishing house. Her father was Matthäus Merian a cartographical engraver and publisher, so she grew up in an atmosphere of scientific illustration. Her stepfather, the artist Jacob Marrel, taught her to draw and paint. She developed a passion for insects and went on to become one of the most impressive entomologists at the beginning of the eighteenth century and one of the best scientific illustrators of any age

Her life story, her struggles and her successes make her to a genuine role model for all women considering a career in science and the University of Amsterdam is celebrating that career with a major conference in June.

Wright’s Cosmic Tapestry.
Thomas Wright believed that God resided at the gravitational center of the universe and that all celestial bodies revolved around that center but were sufficiently far apart to prevent the universe collapsing on its Creator. Since a single gravitational center would have been fundamentally unstable, Wright’s Original Theory proposed that there were in fact millions of separate star systems, each of which had its own supernatural center, represented by the eye of providence, the instrument of the Creation.
