Today is Michael Faraday’s birthday. He was a scientist with a focus on magnetism and chemistry: electromagnetism, electrochemistry, diamagnetism, electrolysis, etc. He discovered benzene.
Ernest Rutherford (who discovered the concept of radioactive half-life) said, “When we consider the magnitude and extent of his discoveries and their influence on the progress of science and of industry, there is no honour too great to pay to the memory of Faraday, one of the greatest scientific discoverers of all time.”

OrigaMIT - paperfolding at MIT. There’s a student club for that. #awesomehttp://origamit.scripts.mit.edu/———————————————————————Theme of the week: Origami at MIT"MIT + origami?” you say. Yes, origami is a big deal here, and we’ll prove it to you with a whole week of Tumblr posts just about origami at MIT. Enjoy!

Wow, we’re already thinking about the Class of 2019….. time is flying by. 

I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer — born under the second law of thermodynamics, steeped in steam tables, in love with free-body diagrams, transformed by Laplace, and propelled by compressible flow.
