Bristish astronomer Fiammetta Wilson was born #OTD in 1864.

Wilson is best known for her work as an amateur astronomer focusing on meteor observation. She meticulously recorded and analyzed meteor showers, contributing valuable data to the field. She became one of the first women to be elected as a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1916. Between the years 1910-20, she observed about 10,000 meteors and accurately calculated the paths of 650 of them.

#OTD in 1850.

Vega was the first star other than the Sun to have its image and spectrum photographed.

The first telescope "The Great Refractor" at HCO was installed in 1847. That telescope was the largest in the United States from its installation until 1867. With it, the first daguerreotype ever made of a star, the bright Vega, was taken by John A. Whipple working under W.C. Bond, following several years of experiments using smaller telescopes.

Italian mathematician and astronomer Giuseppe Piazzi was born #OTD in 1746.

Piazzi’s achievements include the compilation of two star catalogues ("Praecipuarum Stellarum Inerrantium Positiones Mediae In Coelo") as well as the discovery of the large proper motion of the star 61 Cygni. However, Piazzi is probably best remembered for his discovery, on 1 Jan 1801, of Ceres, the largest of the minor planets and the first to be located.

"The economic and social theories used by those who take part in the social struggle ought to be judged not by their objective value but primarily for their effectiveness in arousing emotions. The scientific refutation of them which can be made is useless, however correct it may be objectively."

Vilfredo Pareto (born #OTD in 1848) was an Italian polymath, who contributed greatly to turning economics into a data-based science.

Vilfredo Pareto was one of those that mistakenly asserted that human's behave rationally though isn't he?

Anyways, hardly seems he should be celebrated:

"Pareto argued that democracy was an illusion and that a ruling class always emerged and enriched itself. For him, the key question was how actively the rulers ruled...called for a drastic reduction of the state and welcomed Mussolini's rule as a transition to this minimal state so as to liberate the "pure" economic forces."

Lisa del Giocondo died #OTD in 1542.

According to Giorgio Vasari and numerous other scholars, Lisa Gherardini was the woman portrayed in Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, a work commissioned from the artist during the early 16th century by her husband. Centuries after da Vinci´s death, the Mona Lisa became the world's most famous painting and a symbol of Western art. In 2005, Lisa Gherardini was definitively identified as the model for Leonardo's painting.

"Work on good prose has three steps: a musical stage when it is composed, an architectonic one when it is built, and a textile one when it is woven."

Walter Benjamin (15 July 1892 – 27 September 1940) was a German Jewish literary critic and philosopher. He was at times associated with the Frankfurt School of critical theory, and was also greatly inspired by the Marxism of Bertolt Brecht and the Jewish mysticism of Gershom Scholem.

One of my favourite series of books ever! The writing still feels extremely fresh. They could fit in any era. They’re fun, witty, funny, with an exceedingly charming and clever main character and fantastic antagonists. There’s no lull from book to book. Every story brings its own enigma and holds by itself, while still playing a role in the overarching series.

It’s amazing and I love it so much! I re-read the whole thing every few years. It’s always a delight!
