Colorado State University Misspells 'Science' on Eclipse Glasses
August 22, 2017 |
Yesterday was the day that Americans all over the country stared directly into the sun to see the solar eclipse. Just kidding. Hopefully, they all had protective eyewear. NASA made sure to warn eclipse viewers that improper protection could result in vision damage. But NASA didn’t make sure to warn people against spelling errors on said eyewear.
Colorado State University gave out 50,000 eclipse glasses for burgeoning scientists to check out the celestial phenomenon, according to KOA News Radio. The problem is that it spelled “science” wrong. (We guess that’s why they’re not teaching in the English department.)
Regardless of the spelling error, the college donated about 30,000 of them to the local Poudre School District, and 20,000 will go to people on CSU’s campus. In that case, it provides a valuable lesson in spelling and proofreading in addition to a lesson in space science.
