Happy Thanksgiving from The Franklin Institut...

Happy Thanksgiving from The Franklin Institute. A popular myth about Benjamin Franklin is that he wanted the turkey to be national bird instead of the eagle because “eagles have been found in all Countries, but the Turkey was peculiar to ours." There is no evidence that Franklin fought for the turkey to be the national bird but he did write a letter to his daughter in 1784 expressing why the turkey is “true original native of America.” Learn more: http://bit.ly/1MRjtZM IMAGE: Leopold Joseph Fitzinger (German, 1802-1884) | Meleagris gallopavo (Wild Turkey) from ‘Bilder-atlas zur Wissenschaftlich-populären Naturgeschichte der Vögel in ihren sämmtlichen Hauptformen.’ | 1864 | Smithsonian Libraries, Washington, D.C.

Curious about the science that lifts parade balloons up into the air? Getting Kermit The Frog airborne is a little more complicated than you might think. http://bit.ly/2jKsb9I

    The Physics of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloons
    Have you ever seen a child with a balloon? It's fun to watch. Kids pay attention to the world around them: They know that when you let go of something, it falls. Balloons don't follow these rules, and it's that exception that makes balloons so fascinating. But what about adults?
