Do you know of any websites that have photos similar to the ones you post that would be free to use? I'd like to use something science-y for album artwork for my band, but can't afford to pay licensing fees.
You can find many of them in Wikipedia/Wikimedia. But not all are free to use, many are under some kind creative commons license, the same as usually happens on sites in domains .edu or .org (universities, public scientific bodies, NASA…). So if you are going to run some kind of blog just like this, there should be no problem in sharing pictures of those sites, unless they are explicitly subject to copyright.
Wow! I've been following your blog for a pretty long time and I had NO IDEA you aren't a native english speaker. Your mastery of the language is as impressive as your mastery of science. I am deeply impressed.
Thank you, very kind of you. I do what I can and the same I don’t like grammatical errors in Spanish, also bothers me when I make them in English, therefore I truly appreciate when someone warns me.
Your english is still better than many native to the language that I have known. I hope everyone was kind about it. I think language correction should always be a learning and uplifting experience instead of a brow beating. Anyway, keep up the great work and the excellent blog!
(and I agree as I said before, apart from grateful)
Oh, thanks! Various comments and one anonymous message made me to double-check the word. I’m no-native English speaker, so sometimes I make mistakes. I try to be careful, but occasionally… I fall thunderously, my fault.
“A theory is the more impressive the greater the simplicity of its premises, the more different kinds of things it relates, and the more extended its area of applicability. Therefore the deep impression that classical thermodynamics made upon me. It is the only physical theory of universal content which I am convinced will never be overthrown, within the framework of applicability of its basic concepts.”—
Truth does not exist in some transcendent realm. We get to truth by applying reason to the physical world. The world follows logic and commonsense. Science if done properly is not to far from philosophy. —This quiz was made by S. A-Lerer.
