Today is the 200th birthday of chemist Robert Bunsen. He left us with the Bunsen burner, caesium, rubidium, and one heck of a Muppet. I’ll always remember him for his stylin’ (and profilin’) neckbeard.
If you have yet to visit Google today, they have a great doodle in his honor.
Following Matthew on Twitter is cool.
