Recapitulation theory by women (in science?) - a remake of the comic strip from stripped science
Stripped Science. So I made my version about the disproven idea of 'ontogeny recapitulating phylogeny', including some criticism about non-scientists arguing scientific topics (not about the actual theory itself, but about more complex issues related to evolution for instance). I also combined into this idea the fact that for instance Baby Boo made his first scientific presentation at the age of -5 months (i.e. 5 months before his birth and made his first detectable movements just the night before the presentation), and he met several Nobel prize winners already before his birth. And of course he ran PCR when he was only 1 week old (-9 months old), etc. So it is simply amazing how women in science can involve and introduce their kids to science. It is never too early to start :-).
