Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.

Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)

OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.

Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.

Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.

Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”

Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).

Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.

Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.

Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.

Sometimes I think to myself, “do I really want to buy another chocolate bar?”
And then I remember that there is a super volcano under Yellowstone that is 40,000 years overdue and when it erupts it could potentially cover most of north America in ash and create a volcanic winter that kills half the worlds population
And I’m like, fuck yeah I want that chocolate bar

This is one of the most inspiring posts i’ve ever seen

People keep relating to this poem from my book (Honeybee) and I just want to make it very clear that when I went to see the doctor about wanting to cause myself physical harm/constantly contemplating suicide even if it was just something sitting lazily in the back of my mind, it was a VERY INAPPROPRIATE RESPONSE for my doctor to tell me that it was normal and fine and that she didn’t believe in medication for ‘that kind of thing’. It was absolutely not okay to tell me that I was just stuck in a rut and that life would be fine if I just made a few changes. That’s not how mental illness works. It doesn’t go away when you start jogging or taking up painting classes or something. If you take a survey of the people in your life and ask if they routinely think about “blooming the skin on their wrists” (aka cutting it open) the answer will be a resounding “no”. Everybody does not feel that way. It is not normal.
You absolutely should consult a doctor or a therapist. And if they say something like that, go consult another one. If you’re turned off by a bad experience with one or you don’t feel like seeking treatment is the best option for you, at least talk to a friend or family member. Talk to someone. This is especially not the time of year to sit around alone and wait this shit out quietly.

I wanna do this. most likely tuesday or Wednesday. I will take request, but also will just go through the list…

I got a couple of these the other day and I am going to record tomorrow night, so if there are any other requests my ask box is open

Doing this again, I’ll record and post tomorrow. Maybe this time I’ll find the cable for my good microphone…

Tempted to do this… Or bits of it. Thoughts from those who lurk?
