Skull anatomy by Leonardo da Vinci Featured Print

Skull anatomy by Leonardo da Vinci

Skull anatomy by Leonardo da Vinci. Historical artwork and notes on the anatomy of the human skull and teeth, by the Italian artist and scientist Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). This bisected skull shows the external structure (right), and dissected facial sinuses (left), the air-filled spaces inside the bones of the face. The diagram at lower left shows the teeth present in one half of the mouth: 4 incisors, 2 canines, 4 pre-molars, and 6 molars. Da Vinci was the first anatomist known to have correctly noted the number and root structure of human teeth. The notes are an example of his mirror writing, which was written backwards from right to left, and could be read in a mirror

First observation of omega-minus particle Featured Print

First observation of omega-minus particle

This historic photograph from the 80-inch (200cm) bubble chamber at the Brookhaven National Laborat- ory shows the first observation of the omega-minus particle, which consists of three strange quarks. A negative kaon enters at bottom left & collides with a proton in the chamber's hydrogen to produce 3 particles, including the omega-minus. The omega travels a short distance before decaying into a negative pion, which veers to the right across the bottom part of the picture, & a neutral xi partic- le which leaves no track. Discovery of the omega in 1964 confirmed Gell-Mann & Ne'eman's classific- ation of subatomic particles, the Eightfold Way

1863 Huxley from Ape to Man evolution Featured Print

1863 Huxley from Ape to Man evolution

Ordered series of primate skeletons. The Frontis engraving by Waterhouse Hawkins from the first edition of Huxley's 1863 "Evidences as to Man's Place in Nature". In this book Huxley presented his evidence that man was descended from the apes. It was published in reaction to Darwin's "On the Origin of Species" 1859. Though this image is often interpreted as indicating a line of descent, it is more intended to show ordered variation in limb bones and posture as well as the clear skeletal similarities in the group. The image has been quoted as an inspiration for Rudolph Zalinger's famous Time-Life 1965 image "The Road to Homo Sapiens" (page 40-45, Nature Library Early Man). That iconic image has become known as "The March of Progress". The artist for this work, Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins, was famous for his pioneering dinosaur reconstructions but lectured against Darwinian evolution
