Mesopotamian Astronomy - Babylonian and Persian History Ever since man first looked up at the stars and asked the question, “Are we Alone?” the history of astronomy has shaped the course of human society, connecting science with the inbuilt human spirituality and sense of wonder at the unimaginable vastness of the cosmos. Now seen as the domain of loveable eccentrics, such as Patrick Moore, the late, great Carl Sagan, and Brian May, it is easy to forget how the science of astronomy has pervaded nearly every aspect of human history, and oversaw the rise and fall of great civilizations. The History of Astronomy - Shaping Human History Many notable events in history were shaped by conjunctions of stars and astronomic events, such as the star (supernova) that guided the Magi to Bethlehem. Halley’s Comet always seems to bring fear, destruction and rebirth in its wake, the portent of doom that caused seismic shifts in human history.

slouch - Parchment Office *clunk* The rotating tin cylinder within the phonograph vibrates slightly as a brass needle scrapes against it. The sound of a throat being cleared emerges from the machine's hornshell speaker, followed by a thin, haunting voice. "March the 16th." A deep, shaky breath. "I dread to say it, but I believe I am going mad.

Google Graph Search Tricks | Gr8tricks | Digital World Last year back in Dec 2011, Google announced a new feature with which you could draw graphs of complicated functions using just the google search. Just type any mathematical function a click on search and google will draw a graph for it. That's a great feature but is actually quite useless for someone like me. But nonetheless you can do some crazy things by using this new feature. Now try this out:Go to GoogleType sqrt(cos(x))*cos(200 x)+sqrt(abs(x))-0.7)*(4-x*x)^0.01, sqrt(9-x^2), -sqrt(9-x^2) from -4.5 to 4.5 in the search box, andClick on Search Heart Shape Graph Using Google Search So what did you see? To draw Heart Shape Graph without the circle type this in Google and click on Search: sqrt(cos(x))*cos(200 x)+sqrt(abs(x))-0.7)*(4-x*x)^0.01, sqrt(9-x^2) As you may have thought, the heart shape graph isn't the only one in the list. This is what you should get as a result for that function. Lastly I had some spare time so I tried to make one of these myself. Thanks for reading..
