How well can you throw a yo-yo? People are proving their skills at the #MIT Community Picnic (today, Sept. 30, 12-2 p.m. at the Johnson Athletic Center). The picnic honors retiring ombudsperson Mary Rowe, whose MIT career spans more than four decades. The theme of the picnic is “our community, together in service.” #service #community #mit  (at MIT Johnson Athletics Center)

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.”
This picture portrays a building on MIT campus that bears Faraday’s name on its façade.
