The Supernova Closest to Earth —A Glowing Ring 6 Trillion Miles in Diameter
—
While there is, on average, only one supernova per galaxy per century,  there is something on the order of 100 billion galaxies in the  observable Universe. Taking 10 billion years for the age of the Universe  (it’s actually 13.7 billion, but stars didn’t form for the first few  hundred million), Dr. Richard Mushotzky of the NASA Goddard Space Flight  Center, derived a figure of 1 billion supernovae per year, or 30  supernovae per second in the observable Universe!Many  astronomers, including physicist Stephen Hawking,  believe that one of  the most plausible reasons we have yet to detect intelligent life in the  universe is due to the deadly effects of local supernova explosions  that wipe out all life in a given region of a galaxy.

Leonardo’s study of the human womb.
"This work must commence with the conception of man, and must describe the nature of the womb, and how a baby lives in it, and in what degree it resides there, and the way it is enlivened and nourished, and its growth, and what interval there will be between one degree of growth and the next, and what it is which pushes it out of the mother and for what reason it sometimes comes out of its mother’s womb before due time."
Like they say, a man ahead of his time.
Could have worked on those run-on sentences though.
