"People might come to Hanford, Chernobyl, and Rocky Flats for a variety of reasons: to scratch a nostalgic itch, to experience a postapocalyptic vision, or even to reclaim, and acclaim, nature. They may come away with more." In the new issue of Distillations magazine, Rebecca Boyle explores nuclear tourism.

    Greetings from Isotopia
    The tourists are almost all smiling. Some wrap arms around companions or young children; others stand tall and give a thumbs-up. Members of an orchestra pose stiffly in matching blue neckties; a dozen retirees in white socks and tennis shoes beam for the camera.

Today, NASA is announcing some big news from ...

Today, NASA is announcing some big news from the planet-hunting Kepler telescope. Meanwhile, we've got some history about another Kepler—Johannes Kepler, a key figure in the 17th-century scientific revolution and the astronomer for whom NASA's telescope is named. One of Kepler’s many discoveries was in the field of physiological optics. By studying the lens, and the anatomy of the eye, Kepler was the first to correctly realize that the lens of the eye projects an image of the world onto the retina, upside-down and backwards. Although he discovered this and published it in 1604, it was not illustrated for the first time until Rene Descartes’s Principia philosophiae (1644), which we have in the #OthmerLibrary. In this image, you see the eyeball in the middle with the optical rays passing through it. On the retina, you see where the little circle, diamond, and triangle appear. And then there’s a little “observer” underneath who sees the image as it appears on the retina. Learn more about science in the 16th and 17th centuries, from CHF's curator of rare books and an expert on Kepler, Jim Voelkel: http://ow.ly/Glme30hcGz1

The Best Cocktail Bars in Philadelphia

Queen Village’s premier cocktail bar, which was a pioneer in Philadelphia’s craft cocktail boom, is as good as ever, thanks to an excellent staff and cocktails that run the gamut from classic to experimental. (701 S 4th St,; 267-930-8538)

The former home of Bookbinder’s has been transformed into a classic cocktail bar by Jose Garces, which still serves up Bookbinder’s-style dishes like snapper soup and, of course, plenty of oysters. (125 Walnut St.; 215-253-3777)

Visit Paris without leaving Queen Village when you step into Good King Tavern, which boasts an impressive menu of classic cocktails alongside an excellent wine selection. (614 S 7th St.; 215-625-3700)

Nicholas Elmi’s newest restaurant, located in the heart of Old City, offers up a selection of classic cocktails on a menu that denotes where, when, and by whom the cocktail was created — and it’s one of the only places in the city where you can find a Seelbach. (52 S 2nd St,; 267-606-6313)

An Old City favorite for two decades, Fork’s cocktail list may be brief, but it’s carefully considered — and its skilled bar staff can whip up anything you’d like to pair with your meal. (306 Market St.; 215-625-9425)

This article has 28 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

When you step into 1 Tippling Place, you’ll feel like you’re in a particularly cozy living room, albeit one with excellent classic and reimagined cocktails. (2006 Chestnut St.; 215-665-0456)

...keep your phone in your pocket, and don’t miss the bar adorned with nickels. (1029 Race St....

Tod Wentz’s flagship on Passyunk Avenue is known for its creative cocktails and its late night industry crowd — and ultimately, the best thing about Townsend is that it’s a neighborhood spot that happens to have some of the best cocktails and French food in town. (1623 E Passyunk Ave; 267-639-3203)

One of Philadelphia’s oldest restaurants reopened in 2016 with a brand new redesign, a bold new cocktail program from Paul MacDonald, and an incredible dinner service, bringing it right back into the city’s top tier of bars. (261 S 21st St;  215-546-4232)

Joey Baldino’s private, members only club in the heart of South Philly isn’t currently accepting new members, so find a friend with one of those stamped little white cards, settle in at the bar, and order a Negroni — but don’t forget to bring cash. (1408 S 12th St.)

This Starr speakeasy is tucked behind El Rey, identified only by a sign with two red, crossed Rs hanging on Ranstead Street. If you can get a seat, opt for a dark corner booth and order the Bartender’s Choice. (2013 Ranstead St.; 215-563-3330)

This spot is certainly one of Philadelphia’s strangest bars — hidden away on the second floor of an Ethiopian restaurant in West Philly, Fiume offers a full and diverse cocktail list alongside a vast array of spirits in a relaxed, low-key atmosphere. (229 S 45th St.; 215-387-2424)

Chris Painter’s Fishtown restaurant gets plenty of (well-deserved) attention for its housemade pastas and pizzas, but don’t overlook its cocktail menu or its list of Italian amaro. (1355 N Front St.; 215-291-1355)

The standard for all Philadelphia distilleries, Philadelphia Distilling’s gorgeous tasting room is home to exceptional cocktails using the distillery’s homegrown spirits and local herbs, fruits, and even vegetables. (25 E Allen St.; 215-671-0346)

...open to anyone and serves some of the most creative (and well-named) cocktails around. (300 S Broad St.; 215-670-2302...

If you can’t get into Laurel (and you probably can’t), you’ll enjoy its casual counterpart right next door just as much, thanks to its caviar service, inventive drinks, and sleek marble bar with gold fixtures. (1615 E Passyunk Ave; 267-858-0669)

After honing his skills in several of Philadelphia’s best kitchens, Greg Vernick opened up his eponymous Rittenhouse Square restaurant to huge acclaim, but don’t overlook the bar — each and every cocktail will pair perfectly with one of their toasts. (2031 Walnut St.; 267-639-6644)

With a classic cocktail bar downstairs and a tiki bar upstairs, The Franklin contains multitudes, but after all this time, it still serves up some of the most inventive craft cocktails in the city. (112 S 18th St,; 267-467-3277)

For a more casual feel, you can stop into a.bar for a cocktail and a dozen oysters, and when you’re ready for dinner, walk across the hall to a.kitchen to pair your second cocktail with their full dinner menu. (135 S 18th St,; 215-825-7030)

Located directly above Oyster House, Mission’s margaritas are made with everything from freshly squeezed lime juice to green juice to tamarind. (1516 Sansom St.; 215-383-1200)

Michael Schulson’s dark, sexy izakaya has several excellent cocktails, but don’t miss out on its namesake drink, a bourbon and rye Manhattan variation made with smoke staves. (120 S 13th St.; 215-631-3868)

Tod Wentz’s Spanish-inspired tapas bar boasts cocktails inspired by Madrid, Barcelona and beyond alongside traditional small plates like boquerones and patatas bravas. (1121 Walnut St.; 267-324-3014)

Jose Garces’ shrine to all things whiskey has one of the best old fashioneds in town, an outstanding burger to pair with it, and a whiskey shelf beyond your wildest dreams. (118 S 20th St.; 215-665-1088)

This sleek Midtown Village bar offers excellent cocktails made with local, fresh ingredients alongside creative vegan fare. (131 S 13th St.; 267-758-5372)

America’s Strength Pictured here is a poster...

America’s Strength Pictured here is a poster entitled "America's Strength," which describes the differences between the strength of Germany and the strength of the United States, and encourages workers not to treasure wages and profits, but treasure the sacrifice of their labor for the war effort. This poster was produced by the United States Department of Labor and, like many other propaganda posters, was distributed to American factories in order to encourage workers to maximize efficiency for the war effort.

It's Violin Day. For decades instrument makers, musicians, and even scientists have tried to figure out what makes a Stradivarius so special. Explore the whole story in the new issue of Distillations magazine.

    Stradivari and the Search for Brilliance
    One of Roman Totenberg's first memories was of Moscow and his mother arriving home with a horse's head to cook for dinner. Totenberg's family had fled Poland at the beginning of World War I to avoid the fighting, but they could not avoid the famine that accompanied the Russian Revolution.
