theaters and in a script-book form on Friday will introduce fans to a pre-Potter era that includes a menagerie of magical misunderstood creatures The movie follows "magizoologist" Newt Scamander played by Eddie Redmayne who lets a few beasts out of his magical briefcase causing mayhem throughout 1920s New York City In the narrative of the Wizarding World Scamanders adventures which will be played out on screen over the course of five movies in the new series inspired a bookwith the same name of the filmthat shows up briefly in the original Potter series Rowling who wrote the screenplay has often drawn on real history culture and religion in her fiction so its no surprise that experts find shes been clever with her creation of each beast in Scamanders case Stephen Asma a professor of philosophy at Columbia College Chicago and author of On Monsters says that the connection goes all the way back to the idea that there would be a Fantastic Beasts book that Harry Potter might read at school Such a compendium of creatures is a very old concept started in the ancient world "Aristotle was writing about ‘fantastic beasts’ in the Hellenic period" he says referring to the Greek philosophers Historia Animallium In the movie Scamanders beasts are feared by nearly everyone but himself Asma sees another connection there: he says that terror about mystical creatures wasnt that big of a thing in Aristotles time Initially Greek and Roman cultures were interested in supernatural creatures because they were surprising and different but their myths didn’t position such animals as dangerous or demonic That came later in the Medieval period and into the dawn of Christianity as older monster myths met the stories of the Bible “Whenever you see monsters described in the medieval period and into the 1600s” Asma says “youll often see them said to be the descendants of Cain and a good example of this is in Beowulf" (The Old English poem features a villain named Grendel who is referred to as the “kin of Cain”) "So this makes monsters in the Christian tradition pretty much all evil What I like about Rowling is shes going back to this other notion of monsters" Asma says "That theyre just creatures like us trying to get through life and we can befriend them and they can help us and we can help them" Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter Asma notes that many of the Wizarding Worlds creatures are similar to some of the most famous in mythology For example Scamanders story introduces creatures like the occamy described on Rowlings site Pottermore as a "two-legged winged creature with a serpentine body that is fiercely protective of its eggs" which Asma says sounds a lot like the Greek mythological griffin a winged lion known for aggressively guarding its eggs Rowlings also made it clear the favorite newcomer in the beastly world is the niffler a platypus-like trouble-making creature "with a penchant for anything shiny" which Asma says could tie back to a religious tradition called animism in which the world is full of “little mischievous spirits” "The idea in these animistic cultures is that youre trying to draw the local spirits into a house to live” he says “and youre going to provide them with food and drink and a nice place to live and then they wont disrupt your business or family" Perhaps most importantly Scamander repeatedly tries to convey to suspicious onlookers that the beasts in his case are hardly disruptiveand here once again Rowlings story reflects how beasts have often been treated throughout history and culture The archetypal beast is powerful and strong but ultimately lonely and misunderstood “That theme is returned to over and over because we oftentimes see that this thing we saw as threatening is in fact something thats just different from us” he says “Oftentimes when you see monsters youll notice theyre exaggerations of real predators in the local environment or cultural fears like xenophobia Some creature seems evil until you realize they have a backstory thats filled with pain and possibly abuse and misunderstanding or loneliness and once you grasp that it makes sense” Contact us at [email protected] sounds appetizing: imagine having to clean your leafy greens with citric acid-based food sanitizing wipes before being able to eat your

laboratory This experiment which NASA calls “Veg-01” is a study of the performance of the science agency’s plant growth facility The project to bring vegetables to space has been in the works for a while now NASA last year watered and cared for some vegetables in space and after 33 days of growth the plants were harvested and returned to Earth in October 2014 to be tested Other steps were made to ensure the food was safe to consume which NASA fully detailed in a blog post The consumption of lettuce in space is the latest in a long line of food science innovation that has occurred for decades now For the Mercury missions which were conducted in the early 1960s astronauts tested solid and liquid foods in microgravity environment But because those astronauts weren’t in space for very
