Win (Very) Nerdy Jewelry From Starbell Designs
Move over molecular structure pendants or even Periodic Table t-shirts, for here comes nerdy jewelry that will blow you away. (That’s saying A LOT coming from us.)
How do you feel about the Drake Equation? The Arecibo Message?
Do they ring a bell? No? Don’t worry – you’re probably not alone. To be honest, as shameful as it is, I admit that I had to look up the latter.
If your heart rate went up a tad when you read those two terms, then this giveaway is for you.
Tim of Starbell Designs wears his nerd loud and proud with two pieces of jewelry of his own design: a Tungsten Carbide Men’s Ring with the Drake Equation engraved on it and an Arecibo Message Genuine Leather Engraved Cuff Bracelet. And, he’s spreading the love with you all by giving away one of each.
To show what you’re going to get, here are the two pieces of nerdy jewelry. You can also see more of these and Tim’s work on his Facebook page.
According to Tim, “this high quality, high strength ring, made of Tungsten Carbide (two times the stiffness of steel), is smooth on the inside for an extremely comfortable fit. The laser inscription on the outside is known as the “Drake equation” and describes a probabilistic estimate of the number of active, communicative extraterrestrial civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy. The equation was developed by Frank Drake in 1961 to stimulate discussion of intelligent life on other planets and has been heralded as one of the most profound mathematical equations of our time.”
The ring comes in sizes 9, 10, and 11.
The image burned in is the “Arecibo message” and represents intelligent life on Earth as we know it. This message was broadcast in mathematical format to a local galaxy cluster in 1974. The Arecibo message graphic shows: Our base 10 counting system. Atomic numbers of the elements and formulas for the nucleotides which make up DNA. A graphic of the double helix shape of our DNA. A simple graphic figure of a man. The average height of a man. The population of planet Earth. A picture of our solar system, and a picture of the radio telescope this message was sent from.
Koothrappali would certainly approve of these, don’t you think?
The bracelet comes in one size.
