On this day 206 years ago a man named Charles Darwin was born. His curiosity, observation, and careful organization of evidence and thought changed how we think about the world around us, and dramatically altered the study of life sciences. Today, Darwin Day, allow yourself to be curious, and approach your problems with a scientific mindset. And remember the life of a man who traveled the world and came back to his home country with revolutionary ideas that have held up really well after over a century of research. If you’re interested in learning more about Darwin’s ideas and life, there’s a great website with his publications, notes and manuscripts, and other pieces about Darwin’s travels and observations.
