Had a wonderful spring break with my friends, just chilling in Virtus but in the meantime all the things that I have yet to discover… The things I missed in all those years.

Rosie’s Post: Kepler – the beginning of the Cosmographer

I want to start telling you a few things about Kepler, this great Mathematician, Astronomer and Astrologist.

It is worth talking about him. It will… Read more →

ROSIE’S POST: I was born in the Renaissance.

Some believe that the Scientific Renaissance (1450-1630) is the first part of the Scientific Revolution which started in the 17th century. I was born in Cambridge (England) at the end of the Scientific Renaissance, just as we were passing on to the next level of scientific discoveries. And then something remarkable happened and I was given the chance – a… Read more →
