Belgian scientician Dr. Prof. Madga Hesketh-Dorleac arrived in sunny San Diego, California, at the turn of the last century. It was there, in a drafty Spanish mission-style building overlooking La Jolla Shores, that she founded the Institute for Gravitronomic Inertiametrics.
Dr. Prof. Hesketh-Dorleac’s mission for the Institute was simple:
To understand the Universe and how it is different from the other ones.
Sciencing in the 20th Century

1901 was a time when science was ready to learn more about the Universe. What does it look like? Does it have a taste? Does it exist on the back of a tortoise? Can it fit inside a breadbox, given a large enough breadbox? Is it really so strange or are we just paranoid?
