Why is the Sky Blue?
Have you ever wondered why the sky is blue? Or do you have a kid who's at that age and is asking you that question? If so, this quick episode will answer your question. I continue working on the history of science, although due to the Coronavirus outbreak, I'm a bit behind. This is the new reality and we must be flexible and adjust.

Coronavirus - What You Need to Know
There's a lot of misinformation out there, or way too many websites and videos and it all can be overwhelming. Here's all that you need to know about viruses and in particular the Coronavirus, or COVID-19. From how it spreads, to what it does to your body, to how you can protect yourself, it's all here. Please check out the sources, listed below, as well as my Patreon page if you want to support what I do. --- https://www.patreon.com/hardcorescience https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/transmission.html https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention.html?CDC_AA_refVal=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fcoronavirus%2F2019-ncov%2Fabout%2Fprevention-treatment.html https://www.nature.com/scitable/topicpage/the-origins-of-viruses-14398218/ https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1369848616300103 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3427559/ https://www.britannica.com/science/virus/Viral-DNA-integration https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html https://www.cnn.com/interactive/2020/health/coronavirus-maps-and-cases/

For the Love of Science - Part 1
When the first people looked up at the sky and saw the Sun, the Moon, the stars and the five known planets, they invented myths to explain their motion. But myths could only get us so far. While the ancient Egyptians were great technologists, it was the Greeks who took this business of measuring the Earth and finding out its shape seriously.  Listen as I take you on a journey of discovery and thought all for the love of science. Each episode requires hours upon hours of research. This 17-minute episode may not seem like it, but trust me, it does take a while. With that in mind, at first my frequency of uploads will be sporadic, but soon I'll get a regular schedule going with longer episodes and the promised Patreon page. For now, could you please subscribe and share with others? Thank you. ---- Sources https://www.britannica.com/biography/Eratosthenes https://www.britannica.com/topic/number-symbolism/Pythagoreanism https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/philolaus/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Greek_astronomy
