“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”
Maire Curie, Scientist (1867-1934).

Top auction sales
Last month saw a 1859 first
edition of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection auctioned for $500,075. Elsewhere, for a
mere $2.3 million one could have procured a, somewhat larger, 150 million year
old allosaurus skeleton.
