Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin Saw Through The Stars | Hackaday

Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin discovered that stars are primarily made of hydrogen and helium, at a time when astronomers thought that the Sun and the Earth had no significant elemental differences. She proposed that hydrogen wasn’t only more common, but that it was a million times more common.

F-4 Phantom for Sale: Buy a Flyable McDonnell F4H-1F Phantom Jet


Want a piece of history? You can have this one for only $3.25 million. Plus you'll need to pay for overhauling three General Electric J79 turbojets. And then pay to get it inspected and flight certified ... but at that point, that's pocket change. Oh, and flying lessons would probably be a good idea, too.

On this day, 28 November 1919, Faye Schulman, photographer and Jewish resistance partisan, was born in Lenin, Poland (now Belarus). In 1942, the Nazis murdered 1,850 Jews in the Lenin ghetto, leaving only Faye and 25 others alive, making Faye take and develop photos of the massacre. Covertly she made copies of the photographs for herself.

She soon fled and joined the partisan resistance, serving as a fighter and nurse. While on a raid in Lenin with her unit, Faye managed to retrieve her camera equipment, and then began documenting the resistance movement, developing her photos under blankets.

"I want people to know that there was resistance. Jews did not go like sheep to the slaughter. I was a photographer. I have pictures. I have proof." Faye survived the war, currently lives in Canada and turns 101 today.

Why are there 7 days in a week? I always figured it's because a moon cycle is about 29 days, and, well, you can't divide 29 by anything (it's a prime number), so if you want to, you either round down to 28 and divide by 2, 4, 7, or 14, or you round up to 30 and divide by 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, or 15. In this video, Joe "It's okay to be smart" Hanson, who is apparently becoming increasingly deranged from prolonged quarantine, implied without mentioning the 30 option that the 28 option was chosen because it allowed dividing by 4 because we humans like quarter moons. So each 7-day week corresponds approximately with a quarter of the moon's cycle.

But that's only part of the story. Apparently another clue is that there were 7 "wanderers" in the sky: the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. Uranus and Neptune weren't visible to the ancients. No, they couldn't see Pluto, either, or Ceres for that matter. Anyway, there's a clue to this in the names of the week: Sunday is the Sun's Day, Monday is the Moon's Day, Tuesday is Týr's Day, Wednesday is Wōden's Day, Thursday is Thor's Day, Friday is Freyja's Day, and Saturday is Saturn's Day.

Wait, I hear you say, we have a bunch of Norse gods with one Roman god thrown in there (Saturn). But that's just in English. If you look at most Romance languages, you'll see other Roman gods in there, and they are the same as the "wanderers", for example Wednesday is miércoles for Mercury in Spanish (domingo, lunes, martes, miércoles, jueves, viernes, sábado), mercredi in French (dimanche, lundi, mardi, mercredi, jeudi, vendredi, samedi), and mercoledì in Italian (domenica, lunedì, martedì, mercoledì, giovedì, venerdì, sabato). Squint and you can see Mars in there (martes, mardi, martedì), Jupiter (jueves, jeudi, giovedì), and Venus (viernes, vendredi, venerdì). For us English speakers, somewhere in our history, we got invaded by a bunch of Norse people and they tossed out some Roman gods and inserted their own.

I haven't mentioned German but in the video he says the Germans have "middle of the week", and yes, Wednesday is "Mittwoch" in German which literally means "middle of the week". He doesn't mention Samstag (Saturday) which in German means "Sabbath day". The rest of the days of the week in German correspond to the same Norse gods as English (Sonntag, Montag, Dienstag, Mittwoch, Donnerstag, Freitag, Samstag).
