Weekend S&T Culture Corner

A few nuggets from where science and technology poke their heads up in the sea of cultural offerings.

First, Washington, D.C. area theatre-goers will have the opportunity to check out Photograph 51, which played in the Ensemble Studio Theatre last fall in New York City.  The play covers the role of Rosalind Franklin in the discovery of DNA.  Its D.C. run will be at Theater J from March 23 through April 24.

Nothing really to say about tonight’s Academy Awards, aside from noting that the Technical Oscars will get mentioned round about the time many folks will be visiting the restroom.

A couple of recent comic strips with science and technology themes to close out.  From The New Adventures of Queen Victoria and Frazz, respectively.
