English traveler Thomas Coryat described Renaissance Venice as a "beautiful queene." Nanotechnology journal Nanotechnology is essential reading for anyone who is interested in the latest advances in nanoscale science and technology. It encompasses the understanding of the fundamental physics, chemistry, biology and technology of nanometre-scale objects and how such objects can be used in the areas of computation, sensors, nanostructured materials and nano-biotechnology. Statistical Review of World Energy 2013 The Statistical Review provides comprehensive, high-quality objective and globally consistent data on world energy markets Energy trends How much will demand for energy grow in the next two decades?
Papers of the Board of Longitude The sixty-eight volumes of the papers of the Board of Longitude document in rich detail many of this public institution’s remarkably wide-ranging activities over more than a century (1714-1828). The 1714 Longitude Act nominated twenty-two Commissioners, including parliamentarians, administrators, scholars and naval officers. Their official tasks were to judge proposals for determining longitude at sea, fund experiments to try what seemed viable projects, and reward schemes judged successful according to the Act’s stringent criteria. The current disposition of these archives is mainly due to the nineteenth century astronomer George Airy, a member of the Board when it was abolished in 1828.
Royal Aeronautical Society The Aeronautical Journal is the world’s longest continuously-produced aeronautics journal and has for over a century been the UK's leading scientific and technical aeronautical journal.
