Famous Physicists as Children
From left to right:
Stephen Hawking (b. 1942) - Most well known for Hawking radiation and theorems involving gravitational singularities. He suffers from ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease - and is one of the most well scientists of our time.
Neil deGrasse Tyson (b. 1958) - Currently the director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space, Tyson is one of the leading science advocates in the world - and was one of the men who supported the demotion of Pluto.
Carl Sagan (1934-1996) - One of the most successful science popularizers of all time, Sagan was also the bestselling author of Cosmos, one of the most popular science books of all time. He was the first to propose that Jupiter’s moons Titan and Europa may hold liquid components of water on them.
Albert Einstein (1879-1955) - The most well known genius in history, Albert Einstein was a boss. During his career, he revolutionized almost every area of Physics, including quantum mechanics and he effectively founded the study of Cosmology. His theory of general relativity has been wildly successful, despite ‘attacks’ by neutrinos.
Richard Feynman (1918-1988) - His most important contributions came via his path integral formulation of quantum mechanics and development of Quantum Electrodynamics (QED). Plus, he was a total badass.
This is 2 cute to
Dawwwws they’re so adorbs!
So apparently they want to protest at her funeral. Now I normally don’t condone WBC. As a veteran and a bisexual woman, I find their beliefs disgusting and their methods despicable.
That being said, when they protest a celebrity’s funeral, there is something going on that is right. The death of a celebrity is cause for some realisations. Why is it that when one person dies, MILLIONS of people cry, but millions of people die (for example in Africa) and very few mourn their deaths?
Children all over the world (yes even here in the US) die every day from diseases, hunger, and abuse, and yet they get no more coverage than a soundbite. Yet, a celebrity dies and every relevant channel on both local and national levels devote HOURS of coverage to the life and death of that one person.
I would love to stand outside the cemetery where Whitney is being buried with a sign saying “One person dies and a million cry… A million die, but who’s gonna cry for them?” and on the other side it would say “I got a reason to be here, but those fuckers just wanna spread their hate.” with an arrow pointing to the WBC idiots and their “god hates fags” signs.
