Scientific valentines

By Phil Plait | February 13, 2009 8:56 am

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and I’ll have something appropriate to post for you then, but in the meantime, I’ll remind you that Ironic Sans has great scientific cartoons you can send your geeky sweetie. He even inspired me to create my own.

You can follow him on Twitter, too.

    I am going to create my own, too, for a particular group of people:

    Emission nebulae are red,
    Reflection nebulae are blue,
    Absorption nebulae are dark,
    Creationists, **** you!

    :-)

    thank you Carl for all you did to inspire a generation
    and thank you Phil for continuing on the work that so many started

    “science is a collaborative enterprise spanning the generations, when it permits us to see the far side of some new horizon, we remember those who prepared the way, seeing for them also”
