Good morning, we’re firmly on track for the weekend now so things are looking up.
Today is somewhat of a grim day in history, it’s the anniversary of the Columbine High School Massacre (1999), the Deepwater Horizon Rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, and of course the birth of Hitler in 1889 among an array of other disasters and horrors both natural and man-made.
On the science front, today in 1902 Pierre and Marie Curie refined radium chloride; and in 1862 Louis Pasteur and Claude Bernard completed their experiment falsifying the theory of spontaneous generation.
