Fight 4: Galvani Vs. Volta

 

Galvani wanted to show that animals were inherently electrical, Volta wanted to prove him wrong. In the end it all leads to the Machines using us as batteries, really it does. I promise.

Fight 3: Priestly vs. Lavoisier vs. Scheele

Scheele did it first, Priestly got the credit, but Lavoisier made it relevant. The discovery of Oxygen was an important turning point in the history of science, and barely any mice had to die.

Fight 2: Shapley Vs. Curtis

 

Howard Shapley thought that the universe was made of a single “continental” galaxy that was not centered on our solar system. Herber Curtis was of the opinion that our sun was at the center of the Milky Way, but he did not think our galaxy singular. On April 26, 1920 their opinions came head to head in what would later become known as the Great Debate.

Fight 1: Newton Vs. Leibniz

 

The first fight to be featured in the Science Sparring Society is between the two biggest intellectual heavyweights of the late 17th Century, Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz. Their battle over the Calculus was so epic they call it a war!
