Every Time You Click This Headline, Science Punches Ignorance In The Face With Truth

What's more powerful than science? The alternating current of humanity protecting it from evil. Nicola Tesla, the greatest geek in the history of science, has no museum to honor his name. That's a disgrace. It's up to you to fix it. So share the hell out of this.

You heard the man.
And share this so everyone will know the greatest geek of all time, Nikola Tesla!

For the first time in its 56-year history, Sports Illustrated will feature a transgender model on its glossy cover. 23-year-old Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio will appear in the July issue, which hits stands early next week. Sampaio wrote on Instagram that she was "excited and honored" to be part of such an iconic issue, adding: "The team at SI has created yet another groundbreaking issue by bringing together a diverse set of multitalented, beautiful women in a creative and dignified way."

A native of Fortaleza, a city in northeastern Brazil, Sampaio has been making history in the fashion world in recent years. She was already the first trans model to make the 2017 cover of Vogue Paris. Scouted while she was a young teen, she quickly made her way onto key runways in her home country. She managed to make an impression in a short time— launching her career at 18 years old—as L'Oréal Paris's first trans model. She hit another milestone last year, when she was the face of Victoria's Secret campaign, breaking barriers as the first trans woman working with the brand.
