HERÓDOTO, el viaje aprendizaje de la tolerancia. MARCO POLO, el inventario del mercader. CRISTÓBAL COLÓN, la fiebre del oro. PIGAFETTA, cronista de la primera vuelta al mundo. Muchos más serían los nombres que podríamos poner aquí en representación de aquellos viajeros, aventureros, comerciantes, o, que simplemente querina descubrir nuevas tierras y conocer a nuevos pueblos para aprender de sus cultiuras. Ningún pueblo ha ocupado desde el principio el territorio en el que hoy se asienta y donde ha colocado sus fronteras. De todos aquellos viajes quedaron escritos y relatos El propósito de las páginas que siguen es presentar algunos derroteros de la Historia de la Humanidad como consecuencia de los contactos entre culturas facilitados por los grandes viajeros: exploradores, comerciantes, científicos, guerreros, visionarios o, con mucha frecuencia, todo a la vez.

Super Colossal Friday, 2nd December 2011 Tweet The collection of Yuichi Yokoyama’s early comics “New Engineering” contains the first four ‘Engineering’ comics. They comprise of Engineering, New Engineering, Engineering 3, and Engineering 4. The first in the series-‘Engineering’-starts with a uniform field of rocks that are crushed by large rollers, irrigated, and rolled over with astroturf. “What a beautiful view”. “The astroturf is soft”.

Bad Astronomy Well now, this is an interesting discovery: astronomers have found what looks like a "super-Earth" – a planet more massive than Earth but still smaller than a gas giant – orbiting a nearby star at the right distance to have liquid water on it! Given that, it might – might – be Earthlike. This is pretty cool news. We’ve found planets like this before, but not very many! Now let me be clear: this is a planet candidate; it has not yet been confirmed. The star is called HD 40307, and it’s a bit over 40 light years away (pretty close in galactic standards, but I wouldn’t want to walk there). Massive planets tug on their star harder, so they’re easier to find this way. In this case, HD 40307 was originally observed a little while back by HARPS, and three planets were found. We don’t know how big the planet is, unfortunately. That’s exciting because of the prospect for life. Here’s a diagram of the system as compared to our own: Image credits: ESO/M. Related Posts:
