Graffiti made by a group of communist resistant women : Jeanne Chauviré, Andrée Bonnavita, Norma Nicoletti, Eugénie (Yvonne) Fournier. They arrived in the prison of Rennes (and then to the fort of Romainville) on the 6th of April 1944, they were deported to Ravensbrück on the 18.
The fort of Romainville was an internment German camp that welcomed around 7000 resistants; the majority of them were deported but 200 of were executed. The graffitis are scarce : they only tell a name, a date, or a place of capture.
This video was published by the European Commission for a campaign designed to attract more women to a career in science. The commission said that the video had to “speak their language to get their attention” and that it was intended to be “fun, catchy” and strike a chord with young people. “I would encourage everyone to have a look at the wider campaign and the many videos already online of female researchers talking about their jobs and lives,” The original video was taken down after it received so many negative comments.
Galileo helped to create a new science partly because of his extraordinary skills as an observer, which enabled him to create and use the first telescope. These drawings represent sunspots— whose existence proved that the sun was not the perfect, unchanging body that traditional Aristotelian cosmology considered it to be. Galileo’s work received strong support for a long time from Maffeo Barberini, the future Pope Urban VIII, though his Dialogues on Two World Systems and Copernican views would eventually be condemned by Rome.
