James Watson (as in Crick &) has been stripped of certain honours at a NY lab thx to comments about race and intelligence. If you're worried that he is simply stating uncomfortable truths, this great blog post should reassure you.https://t.co/2KOJGwgIC5

Mathematicians working on a machine-learning problem, showed that the question of ‘learnability’ is linked to the continuum hypothesis. Gödel showed that the statement cannot be proved either true or false using standard mathematical language. https://t.co/j502iuUzQs

Ever seen insects spiralling to a lamp? They actually want to fly in a straight line by looking at the light source at a constant angle. This would work with the Sun or Moon, but lamps fool them into flying along logarithmic spirals. [Wiki https://t.co/4dnoimTnGK] #50FamousCurves pic.twitter.com/gBLv7RpmnO

The head of Harvard's astronomy department thinks that Oumuamua - the mysterious object that shot through our solar system in 2017- could be an alien probe. In this interview he explains why. I'd say it's a long shot, but very interesting.https://t.co/0ffLDhmAto

Dogs on leashes dragging their owners. Surely, this has nothing to do with maths! Well, if they are running along a line perpendicular to the initial direction of the leash, the owners will be dragged along a curve called tractrix.🐶 [Wiki https://t.co/vsVHvk2JyB] #50FamousCurves pic.twitter.com/PUZr63X7hF
