Rational Romanticism - April 2018
"At the inaugural DaVinci Institute  Speaker's Series event, Logan Thrasher Collins makes the case that there is a tremendous amount of fertile ground at the interface between aesthetics and science. Though science is meant to be an unbiased and dispassionate enterprise, the ways in which grand scientific undertakings are conceived, justified, pursued, and communicated are often mytho-poetic in nature -- note that many of the great rockets are named for Greek and Roman gods."
