  1. Quick, How Might the Alien Spacecraft Work?—Stephen Wolfram Blog

    On helping with the science stuff for the movie. “In the end I basically had just one evening to invent how interstellar space travel might work.” (via Infovore)

  2. LRB · Cathy Gere · Dying and Not Dying

    About Henrietta Lacks, who died in 1951, but whose cells, named HeLa, are still being used today.

  3. When Science & Poetry Were Friends - The New York Review of Books

    I liked this Freeman Dyson article from last year, recounting the scientific world of 1770-1830 and comparing it to today.

  4. Royal Society - Trailblazing

    A little thin in content so far, and overly flashy for me, and the original articles are all but hidden. But otherwise a good start on making this old material more accessible.

  5. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society - Vol 1 - 1666 by Various - Project Gutenberg

    Completely wonderful 17th century science. Fascinating subjects, beautiful titles (“A Relation of Persons killed with subterraneous Damps”) and gorgeous language.

  6. The Long Now Blog » Blog Archive » All you need to jump start civilization…

    “On this one graphic is all the stuff you need to know to jump start a civilization (or get super rich if you travel back in time).” Fun.
