The Giant’s Shoulders #42 is out!

December 17, 2011

The 42nd edition of The Giant’s Shoulders, the history of science blog carnival, is up at PACHSmörgåsbord!  In it, you can see maps of the Moon that date back to the 17th century, how to write the square root of 2 in ancient Babylon, and a discussion of the “dancing fever”!  Thanks to Darin for once again putting together an excellent carnival!

The deadline for the next edition is January 15th, but we don’t have a host yet!  We desperately need hosts for all upcoming editions in 2012!  If you can help, please contact  Thony C at Renaissance Mathematicus or Dr SkySkull at Skulls in the Stars, or leave a comment here.

The 41st edition of The Giant’s Shoulders history of science blog carnival has been posted over at Early Modern Experimental Philosophy!  It includes discussions of vampires, ghosts, and armies of ape-warriors (yes, this is still a history of science blog carnival!), as well as (very) early ideas of space travel and old descriptions of volcanic eruptions.  Many thanks to Alberto for putting together an excellent carnival!

The deadline for the next edition is December 15th, but we desperately still need a host for this edition, as well as upcoming editions in 2012!  If you can help, please contact  Thony C at Renaissance Mathematicus or Dr SkySkull at Skulls in the Stars, or leave a comment here.
