Gabriel García Márquez Dies At 87

brianlionzion:

we’ve been deprived of a brilliant writer and humanitarian. he left behind a body of literature that can’t justly be described by anything but poetry or superlatives. whether you know it or not, his loss has left your world a little less bright.

"Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know."

— Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery (via hollow-gram)
