SSS Fight 13: Stigler’s Law

sss13

“Eponymy in science is the practice of affixing the names of scientists to what they have discovered or are believed to have discovered,’ as with Boyle’s Law, Halley’s comet, Fourier’s transform, Planck’s constant, the Rorschach test, the Gini coefficient, and the Thomas theorem”
–Richard K Merton, “The Thomas Theorem and The Matthew Effect”

There are a lot of scientific theories and discoveries that are named after the scientists that found them, too bad a lot of them did not deserve it.

The widespread use of Dark Energy power creation has been with us for decades, but the story of the two best friends that are responsible for our ability to harvest the invisible majority of matter in the universe is as heartbreaking as it is important.

SSS Fight 11: Marconi Vs. Maskelyne

 

While most people know about the massive fight over the patents concerning the invention of radio that Gugliemo Marconi found himself embroiled in, that fight was not the most interesting one in which he participated. Instead the fight that this episode of Science Sparring Society concerns itself with involves wireless telegraphy, its security, and the first guy doing it for the lulz.

SSS 10: Mercator Vs. Peters

 

 

In 1973 Arno Peters launched an attack on most prevalent map projection in the world, a 400 year old map created by the flemish cartographer Geradus Mercator, and released his own map to replace it. It did not go exactly as he hoped.
