Facing the crisis with the human spirit: Science and our good nature

Facing the crisis with the human spirit: Science and our good nature
Throughout history, humanity has been hit with global crises -- among them pandemics including the current one, the Spanish Flu, and even the Black Death in the 14th century. Humanity has always not only beaten these crises but flourished despite them and even at times because of them. Sometimes it's helpful to remember when we were doing innovative things, which is why, once again, I bring you 13th-century innovation and science via Roger Bacon. It's worth being inspired in these times.
