You may have heard of the Humboldt Current and of the the Humboldt Penguins but you probably don’t know after whom they were named. Today we feature a very influential scientist that you may never have heard of: Alexander von Humboldt. It was his birthday on September 14, so this is a good time to talk about him. He was a polymath, geographer, scientist, naturalist, explorer, philosopher and painter. Below are some of his drawings.
