I think about this every time I watch a superhero movie….
I’m the boss, CEO, queen if you’re feeling dramatic. It doesn’t matter. Omega has no titled ruler and only one rule…don’t fuck with Aria.
My fave Mass Effect character <3
(other than my actual crew-mates)
I love looking at mass effect timelines and putting it into a human perspective.
Example, Aria T’loak arrived at Omega when Jack the ripper was tormenting London.
Another example, the Krogan rebellions ended just before the viking period.
Samara realised that her daughter were Ardat-Yakshi…
NOT THE SEXUALITY!!!!! CHILDREN MIGHT LEARN HOW THE HUMAN SPECIES SURVIVES
The sad truth…
I’m not even in this fandom, but hearing this made me feel so much better about life
*sigh* Such simple words. So difficult to live with.
Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)
OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.
Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.
Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.
Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”
Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).
Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.
Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.
Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.
always reblog because you know women
