Alan Turing June 23, 1912

Cool equations from On Computable Numbers With An Application To The Entscheidungs Problem, 1936. Wherein he described the mathematics of computing machines. What he does with Godel’s Theorem is remarkable. Historic paper– it founds computer science.

Cow spots from The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis wherein he lays out the math that describes the evolution of pattern in nature. Like cow spots. And galaxies. His last paper. Math the predicts nature is mystical.

The rainbow because he was gay. Which got him chemically castrated, imprisoned and assassinated. Excuse me he committed suicide. (He was assassinated.)

SpaceX Releases Rockets-Eye View of Yesterday’s Landing

Oh SpaceX, you sweet son of a gun. You’ve landed another rocket on a floating ocean barge. This is the third landing in a row for Elon Musk’s commercial spaceflight company, and the second from a rocket that delivered its cargo to a very high orbit-which means it was coming down increadibly hot.

Space exploration will spur transhumanism and mitigate existential risk

When people think about rocket ships and space exploration, they often imagine traveling across the Milky Way, landing on mysterious planets and even meeting alien life forms. In reality, humans’ drive to get off Planet Earth has led to tremendous technological advances in our mundane daily lives – ones we use right here at home on terra firma.

The art generated by doing science is particularly beautiful. Especially from centuries past.
