Frankenstein, 1818 ed. Vol. I - BTM 1818 edition To Mrs. SAVILLE, England. St. YOU will rejoice to hear that no disaster has accompanied the commencement of an enterprise which you have regarded with such evil forebodings. I am already far north of London; and as I walk in the streets of Petersburgh, I feel a cold northern breeze play upon my cheeks, which braces my nerves, and fills me with delight. These reflections have dispelled the agitation with which I began my letter, and I feel my heart glow with an enthusiasm which elevates me to heaven; for nothing contributes so much to tranquillize the mind as a steady purpose, -- a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye. These visions faded when I perused, for the first time, those poets whose effusions entranced my soul, and lifted it to heaven. Six years have passed since I resolved on my present undertaking. And now, dear Margaret, do I not deserve to accomplish some great purpose? This is the most favourable period for travelling in Russia. Back to Top "Yes."

El Sistema Solar El Sistema Solar es un conjunto formado por el Sol y los cuerpos celestes que orbitan a su alrededor. Está formado por el Sol y una serie de cuerpos que están ligados con esta estrella por la gravedad: ocho grandes planetas (Mercurio, Venus, Tierra, Marte, Júpiter, Saturno, Urano y Neptuno), junto con sus satélites, planetas menores (entre ellos, el ex-planeta Plutón), asteroides, cometas, polvo y gas interestelar. Pertenece a la galaxia llamada Vía Láctea, formada por miles de millones de estrellas, situadas a lo largo de un disco plano de 100.000 años luz. El Sistema Solar está situado en uno de los tres brazos en espiral de esta galaxia llamado Orión, a unos 32.000 años luz del núcleo, alrededor del cual gira a la velocidad de 250 km por segundo, empleando 225 millones de años en dar una vuelta completa, lo que se denomina año cósmico. Los astronomos clasifican clasifican los planetas y demás cuerpos de nuestro Sistema Solar en tres categorías: En este capítulo...

SkyServer Challenging Projects - Teacher'ss Guides Our projects are designed to teach astronomy interactively, using the tools that professional astronomers use. All examples in these projects are taken from real stars and galaxies as seen by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, the most detailed survey in the history of astronomy. These pages give information on how to use SkyServer's projects as an interactive lab in your science class. The projects were designed to be done individually, but they can be done in teams as well. SkyServer Challenges are designed to stretch the students' thinking with difficult questions and long-term projects. Many of these challenges are ideas that SDSS astronomers thought of, but haven't had the chance to work through yet. Click a name or image to choose your challenge:

27 Celebrities Who Don't Drink | The Huffington Post Celebrities aren’t all about champagne brunches and Cîroc-infused nights.

Check out these 19 celebrities who have said they don’t imbibe, from Kim Kardashian to Blake Lively. Getty Images Cooper became sober at 29, telling GQ’s Jan. 2014 issue of his substance abuse, “If I continued it, I was really going to sabotage my whole life.” Getty Images Affleck says his rehab stint in 2001 helped him change his life for the better. CORRECTION: A previous version of this listicle included Kim Kardashian.

These gloves will "change the way we make music", says Imogen Heap Dezeen and MINI Frontiers: in this exclusive video interview, musician Imogen Heap demonstrates the electronic gloves that allow people to interact with their computer remotely via hand gestures. The interview was filmed at Heap's home studio outside London, shortly before she launched her Kickstarter campaign to produce a limited production run of the open-source Mi.Mu gloves. "These beautiful gloves help me gesturally interact with my computer," says Heap, explaining how the wearable technology allows her to perform without having to interact with keyboards or control panels. Pushing buttons and twiddling dials "is not very exciting for me or the audience," she says. Working with a team of developers and musicians, Heap has mapped movements made with the gloves to musical functions such as drum sounds or bass notes, changes of pitch, arpeggios and filters. For example, instead of using a finger to push a fader on a mixing desk, Heap can raise her arm to achieve the same affect.
