This model of an airscrew helicopter was constructed from a sketch made by Leonardo da Vinci in the late fifteenth century. Da Vinci’s helicopter is the earliest known design to envision a machine to carry a man & its own 'power unit'.
Is numerical mimicry a third way of establishing truth? What *is* scientific proof in the age of simulations? (Pic. da Vinci’s sketch of turbulent water flow, which shows complexity on multiple scales and is a major challenge for modeling)
Historian @ElizAbbott argues that understanding da Vinci’s sex life, or lack thereof, provides a rare glimpse into how sexuality was understood and practised in Renaissance Italy — and what it may mean for looking at his achievements today.
Today marks the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death. The artist made a number of sketches depicting the infant Christ playing with a reluctant-looking cat – these drawings were done on opposite sides of the same piece of paper ?? #Leonardo500
