In its thirteen episodes, COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY has endeavored to bring light to some of the heroes of scientific history who have been unjustly overlooked. In honor of the series’ release on Blu-ray and DVD on June 10, we’re taking a look back at a few of these important forgotten trailblazers.

GIORDANO BRUNO

Going against convention, this Dominican friar was vocal in his claim that the earth not only revolved around the sun (a relatively new idea at the time), but that the sun was just another of the countless stars in the sky and there were a multitude of other worlds in the universe. Bruno was burned at the stake for his beliefs, years before he would be proven right by astronomers.

WILLIAM HERSCHEL

An accomplished astronomer, Herschel discovered the planet Uranus along with its two largest moons, was the first to determine the existence of infrared radiation and observed the phenomenon of binary stars caught in the gravitation pull of invisible dark stars.

JOHN MICHELL

Michell was one of the greatest scientific minds of the 18th century that most people have never heard of. He was the first person to propose the idea of black holes, the first to hypothesize that earthquakes move in waves and the first to develop a way to make artificial magnets. His biggest downfall was his lack of interest in promoting his own ideas to the scientific community.

CLAIR PATTERSON

Not only was Patterson the first to use Uranium-Lead dating to calculate the age of the Earth (4.55 billion years), but in the process he developed new standards for sterile lab conditions and, perhaps most importantly, discovered the growing threat of lead poisoning from industrial sources such as car emissions and paint.  His tireless lobbying of the government eventually led to strict sanctions on the use of lead in consumer products by the Environmental Protection Agency that are still in place today.

ANNIE JUMP CANNON and HENRIETTA SWAN LEAVITT

Cannon and Leavitt were employed by Harvard Observatory directory Edward C. Pickering to help him in his endeavors to map and classify the stars. Cannon is credited with creating the Harvard Classification System, which organizes stars based on temperature. Leavitt discovered an important astronomical relationship that later allowed astronomers to calculate the distance between Earth and far away galaxies.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
