American mathematical physicist and physical chemist Richard C. Tolman was born #OTD in 1881.

In a 1916 experiment with Thomas Dale Stewart, Tolman demonstrated that electricity consists of electrons flowing through a metallic conductor. A by-product of this experiment was a measured value of the mass of the electron. In 1938, he published a new detailed work that covered the application of statistical mechanics to classical and quantum systems. via @wikipedia

About Einstein´s work:

"[The author] is also glad to have this opportunity to add his testimony o the growing conviction that the conceptual space and time of science are not God-given and unalterable, but are rather in the nature of human constructs devised for use in the description and correlation of scientific phenomena, and that these spatial and temporal concepts should be altered whenever the discovery of new facts makes such a change pragmatic."

~Richard C. Tolman

French philologist and orientalist Jean-François Champollion died #OTD in 1832.

He was a founding figure in the field of Egyptology. In 1808, he first began studying the Rosetta stone, working from a copy made by the Abbé de Tersan. Working independently he was able to confirm some of the readings of the demotic previously made by Johan David Åkerblad in 1802, finally identifying the Coptic equivalents of fifteen demotic signs present on the Rosetta stone. via @wikipedia

"I'll say it again: Egyptian art owes all that it has produced that is great, pure & beautiful to no one but itself; &, whatever may displease those scholars who make a religion of firmly believing in the spontaneous generation of the arts in Greece.... Ancient Egypt taught the arts to Greece, and Greece gave them the most sublime development: but without Egypt, Greece would probably not have become the classic land of the fine arts."

French physicist Jules Antoine Lissajous was born #OTD in 1822.

Among other innovations, he invented the Lissajous apparatus, a device that creates the figures that bear his name. In it, a beam of light is bounced off a mirror attached to a vibrating tuning fork, and then reflected off a second mirror attached to a perpendicularly oriented vibrating tuning fork, onto a wall, resulting in a Lissajous figure. via @wikipedia

Physician & Microbiologist Albert Sabin died #OTD in 1993.

With the menace of polio growing, Sabin & other researchers sought a vaccine to prevent or mitigate the illness. This was complicated because there were multiple strains of the disease. Salk developed an inactivated poliovirus vaccine, a "dead" vaccine given by injection. Sabin developed an oral vaccine based on mutant strains of polio virus that seemed to stimulate antibody production but not to cause paralysis.

And the oral (OPV) is cheaper & easier to administer in many areas of the world, yet the OPV can revert to the virulent form resulting in hundreds of cases of OPV-derived polio. So today we don't see polio outbreaks in rich countries but we do in poor countries, and it's because of the difference in the vaccines they use. 💲

Chopin used to come in to his concerts wearing gloves and take them off to play. He would intentionally "forget" one of them, leaving it behind on the piano. He knew his fans would go wild, trying to get the glove.

He was a rock star before rock. A musical troublemaker in the grandest tradition.

Huge fan of the Mapp & Lucia series. I even made the pilgrimage to Rye, an almost perfect match for Tilling in the novels, where Benson lived while writing them. Specific places were repurposed for the narrative, so you can read the books and accurately follow in the footsteps of the characters.

I think of Mapp & Lucia as two dinosaurs locked in an epic struggle for dominance, while constrained by the social rules of the 1930s.
