Internet history of science, technology and medicine

Editor in Chief: The Ghost of William Whewell

Year 3, Volume #39

EDITORIAL:

 It is time once again for a new edition of Whewell’s Gazette the weekly #histSTM links list bringing you all of the histories of science, technology and medicine thrown up by the Internet over the last seven days.

One of the most persistent myths in #histSTM is that in the Middle Ages before Columbus sailed westward to try and reach the Spice Islands and ran instead into the Americas the people believed that the world was flat.

This is simple not true; since at least the sixth century BCE educated Europeans had know that the world was a sphere. Another variation of the flat earth myth is that it is true that they knew the earth is a sphere in antiquity but that this knowledge somehow got lost in the European Middle Ages. This is also simple not true.

One does ask what historians have to do to kill of this myth? Apparently the world doesn’t want to know.
