He was one of the most diverse of all scientist of his time contributing major findings to almost all fields of science.He was an natural philosopher, architect and polymath who played an important role in the scientific revolution, through both experimental and theoretical work. His adult life comprised three distinct periods: as a brilliant scientific inquirer lacking money;
Holden Greenberg Mr. Friedrich APUSH March 23, 2013 J. Robert Oppenheimer: How One Man Changed the World Throughout American history, there have been certain decisive moments that have come to define an era. One of these moments was the creation of the atomic bomb. For 70 years, the nuclear bomb has been a driving force in shaping the America we see today. This incredibly destructive weapon, along with many other scientific discoveries would not have been possible without J. Robert Oppenheimer. J. Robert Oppenheimer helped to reshape our world with his many scientific achievements including his work on the Manhattan project along with his contributions to education.
The tomb was built simply but very elegantly. Cyruses temple still stands today which proves Herodotus’s first argument to be false. Herodotus’s second argument falsely poses the idea that the Persians were not elaborate engineers. Evidence from the movie argues that the persians had some of the most ingenious engineers that history had ever seen at that time. The persians had many innovations in engineering.
Throughout the entire history of space flight no one has been more influential than this guy over here, Konstantine Tsiolkovsky. This guy, is often called the father of rocketry and for good reason, he managed to come up with an equation for rocket speeds in 1903, an equation that is still used today, he was known to be a famous visionary, writing sci fi books on man kinds dominance of space, and he also inspired new generations of rocket scientist to prove his theories correct and make them into reality. Tsiolkovsky was born into a middle class family his mother was Russian and his father was polish. When he was 9 he caught scarlet fever which nearly killed him, though he didn’t die he was left nearly deaf and because of this was expelled from school. Tsiolkovsky instead educated himself he developed an interest in mathematics and physics and when he was a teenager began get interested in space travel.
Mesopotamians wrote down what event happened in cuneiform and wrote the date so they know when it happened. Some extraordinary inventions were the ones the Mesopotamian invented. According to Document 1and 2, both a secondary source, the first document states that Mesopotamia “contributed immensely to industrial technology” by inventing useful objects like the wheel. The second document talks about the ziggurat, a temple built to the gods that looked like huge squares of different size placed on top of each other starting from the largest to the smallest.
In 460 BC, a governor of Egypt named Achaemenes was defeated and murdered in battle by the Egyptian forces on the bank of the Nile River, at Papremis. Heron of Alexandria Heron (or Hero) of Alexandria was born in 10 AD in the city of Alexandria, Roman Egypt . He was an ancient Greek engineer and mathematician. His work is representative of the Hellenistic scientific tradition and is known as the greatest experimenter of antiquity. He is known for his method called Heron’s Method, for iteratively computing a square root and for finding the area of triangle
Houston Architect: Richard Keating Richard Keating is a well known Houston Architect. He is best known for his skills and experience in making strategic design decisions in the most cost-effective manner. He worked his way up from being an ordinary architect, helping out with big projects, to being the owner of his own company, designing his own projects. Richard graduated from the University of California Berkeley in 1968. After finishing a year on an excavation in Greece, he told his mentor in Architectural History that he wanted to pursue a PhD in that field.
The study of astronomy is one of the oldest studies of science. People from ancient times have left evidence of their study of the skies. The Great Pyramids of Giza were built in the same pattern as the constellation Orion’s Belt. The Mayans had made their calendar by studying the stars. Basically their whole life depended on the stars.
The Time Machine Analysis Paper The future has been a popular setting for many authors in the 20th and 21st centuries. But one of the original time travel books is that of H. G. Wells, arguably called the father of modern science fiction. In his book “The Time Machine”, he tells the story of a scientist, referred to only as the Time Traveler (or the TT) and his experience with the future of humankind in the year 802, 701 AD. It concerns with the TT’s struggle to retrieve his time machine back from a savage human derived race referred to as the Morlocks or face the possibility of death. Wells uses this book to comment on the many problems the world was facing in the late 19th century.
a. Ibn Sina (d.1037) was a Persian polymath who is considered to be one of the greatest philosophers of the Islamic golden age who contributed to many of the sciences such as medicine, chemistry, astronomy, philosophy, and many more. Al-Biruni (d. 1048) was also a Persian polymath who was, as well, regarded as one of the greatest scholars of the medieval islamic era and therefore it is safe to say that Ibn Sina and Al-Biruni together have been regarded as the greatest scholastic and scientific thinkers throughout history. Before exploring Ibn Sina’s view on natural laws, let us first clarify what natural laws mean in the context oh philosophical studies. In order to believe in natural laws, one must first believe in God since God himself originally issues the natural laws. Ibn Sina’s theory of the “natural position”of celestial bodies asserts his belief of the natural law of the universe.
