• The World Inside a Spanish Globe

    New research at the University of Cambridge has lifted the lid on an unusual Spanish globe. Until now, the globe in the University of Cambridge's Whipple Museum of the History of Science has been shrouded in mystery: where, when and why was it made? Who would have used it? Most fundamentally, what is it -- some kind of scientific instrument or a child's toy? The globe (c. 1907) is unlike any other currently known. Inside are beautiful illustrations, encyclopaedic entries and a planetarium that re-enacts the revolution of the planets around the sun at the turn of a cog. Research by Seb Falk in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science has brought us closer to understanding the puzzling object. Remarkably, his work highlights how it symbolises a wave of change that swept 19th-cent...

  • Curious Objects: Pocket Globe

    All the world’s a stage! But in the case of this Curious Object, the world is a tiny pocket globe covered in sharkskin and lined with a celestial chart. Measuring just 7cm in diameter, this globe was made in London around 1775. Pocket globes were first produced in England by Joseph Moxon and remained in vogue as a gentleman’s toy well into the 19th century. Often – as is the case here – they showed the latest terrestrial and celestial discoveries. This globe tracks the first voyage of Captain Cook’s Endeavour and reflects the discoveries he made. It was presented to the Royal Colonial Institute (now the Royal Commonwealth Society) in 1953 by Olive M Thompson. To borrow another line from Shakespeare: ‘That ends this strange, eventful history.’

    Gates Cambridge Scholars Toby Norman, Daniel Storisteanu and Alexandra Grigore talk about how they came up with the idea for SimPrints, a fingerprint identification system for applications in global health, microfinance and fighting corruption. The team, which now includes other Cambridge students and a colleague from the Royal Holloway, have gone on to win several awards and grants, including a $250,000 seed grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Saving Lives at Birth competition and $150,000 from ARM Ltd.

Research by Seb Falk in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science has brought us closer to understanding the puzzling object. Remarkably, his work highlights how it symbolises a wave of change that swept 19th-century Spain into the modern world -- from increasing trade in scientific instrumentation to a move of the education system towards interactive learning. The Whipple Museum holds an internationally important collection of scientific instruments and models, dating from the Middle Ages to the present. (www.hps.cam.ac.uk/whipple/)

SimPrints is a low-cost, highly accurate mobile fingerprint scanner for low-resource settings which enables a multitude of community health worker programmes to leverage the power of biometric identity to strengthen service delivery in even the most remote parts of the globe. The team see potential for the technology in many other development initiatives, such as in improving drug adherence, micro-finance, and fighting corruption.
