In this month's podcast episode, Distillations brings you a live performance of Ray Bradbury’s short story “The Veldt: http://bit.ly/SciFiDrama

"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
