Welcome To Science // artwork by Gavin Aung Than and Phil Plaint (2012)

Very few times I find something that mixes reason and comics in such an intelligent way, artist Gavin Than has brought to life the words of renowned Astronomer Phil Plaint in such an intelligent fashion that it’ hard to ignore. Science IS the tool that will make us conquer the stars indeed.

Hypatia of Alexandria
‘Influential Women of Astronomy’
Image: Hypatia as played in the film Agora by Rachel Weisz
Sixteen hundred years ago, Hypatia became one of the world’s leading scholars in mathematics and astronomy. Hypatia’s legendary knowledge, modesty, and public speaking ability flourished during the era of the Great Library of Alexandria.
Hypatia is credited with contributions to geometry and astrometry, and she is thought instrumental in the development of the sky-measuring astrolabe.
“Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all,” Hypatia is credited with saying.
“To teach superstitions as truth is a most terrible thing.” — Hypatia of Alexandria
