Design is fine. History is mine.

Imagine a time with no computers.

Émilie du Châtelet, Dissertation sur la nature et la propagation du feu, 1744. Paris, BNF. Georg F. Brandner, triangle dividers, 1770. Augsburg. Manuscript Institutions de Physique, 1740. A page of the translation of Newton’s work Principia mathematica, Edition Dunod, 2005. Made in 1759. Source 1 + 2 + 3 + 4

This woman was a math pro & physicist, multilingual, flashing. She translated Newton from Latin into French and into a topic you could maybe understand (not me, no math talent). She had lots of lovers, including Voltaire. My tribute to science women, my highest respect to Emilie and to women’s day.
