For all the bashing it takes, Facebook is often the source of clever and intelligent memes.* Here’s one of my favorites.
You don’t have to be a scientist to “get” each one, though I confess to having to look up Borlaug. You may already know that Norman Borlaug (1914-2009) was a biologist and humanitarian, winner of the Nobel Prize for Peace, and author of “Feeding a World of 10 Billion People.” He’s credited with extensive contributions to the Green Revolution, thus the stalk of wheat. So, FB can be educational.
I have a particular fondness for
• the apple/o falling from Newton’s name
• the magnet in Faraday’s y
• the Feynman diagram as his y
• the Bohr atom in his o
Each LOGO is a bit of science history. What’s not to like?
* Confirming the meaning and new usage – meme: of Greek origin, meaning a humorous image, video, or piece of text that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by Internet users.
