ADDITIONAL BLATANT SELF-PROMOTION

HISTORIC WORTH A VISIT: VIKING EXHIBIT

If you’re going to be in or near the Philadelphia area over the holidays … https://www.fi.edu/exhibit/vikings-beyond-legend http://www.philly.com/philly/gallery/viking-ship-brought-into-franklin-institute-20180927.html?photo_9&fbclid=IwAR2gxc36kJyAKP5euXXM0dcLOaIJ5-5G7iIAOgbNLLi7M2oEBjN5zM6XKQQ

TRIVIA TRAIL: SCIENTIFIC REALITY ONCE DISMISSED

Question: Scientists once thought there were no elemental differences between the Earth and the Sun. Who first proposed that stars were actually made up of an abundance of hydrogen and helium? Answer: Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin, in 1925, whose thesis met with derision at the time but has since been proven correct. https://www.aps.org/publications/apsnews/201501/physicshistory.cfm

HAPPY HANUKKAH

Hanukkah is the most common spelling nowadays, but it can also be spelled Chanukah because the Hebrew and Latin alphabets don’t always have matching sounds. Both are correct.
