The Life of LOUIS PASTEUR
The Life of LOUIS PASTEUR Louis Pasteur was born on December 27, 1822, in Dôle, a small town in France. He grew in a humble family and his father was a tanner. He graduated in 1840 from the College of Arts at Besancon and entered the prestigious Ecole Namale Supervieure, Paris, to work for his doctorate degree. He chose for his studies the then obscure science of crystallography, which was to have a great influence on his career. Pasteur entered the scientific world as a professor of physics at

J. Robert Oppenheimer J. Robert Oppenheimer, later known as the father of the atomic bomb, was born in New York City on April 22, 1904. He went to school at the Ethical Cultural School in New York. After which, he went to Harvard for three years. Oppenheimer graduated summa cum laude in 1925. Then J. Robert toured Europe for four years where he established himself as a theoretical physicist. In 1926 in Cambridge, England, he wrote his first two papers. The papers were on the hydrogen atom and th
Flight
Flight
Flight Man has always been fascinated with flight. As soon as there were forms of communication, sculptures, carvings, and paintings of beings with wings appeared. From the winged bulls guarding the halls of ancient Persia to the winged horse Pegasus from Greek Mythology, the idea was clear and simple. To fly is to conquer, to dominate, to be as a god ( Josephy 11- 12 ). These early individuals dreamed and experimented with the idea of flight. In the modern world many people take flight for gran

Glenn Seaborg Glenn Seaborg was born in Ishpeming, Michigan in the year of 1912 and has made major contributions to the field of science as a educator, administrator and discover. In the 1930’s and 1940’s and 1950’s at E.O., Lawrence’s lab in Berkley and the University of Chicago, Seaborg made many discoveries / CO-discoveries in the now known actinide series. During the previously mentioned span of 30 years Seaborg taught chemistry at the University of California becoming an assistant professor
True and False
True and False
True and False True and False seem to be such clear and simple terms, opposites and mutually exclusive. In reality, however we may inhabit, in much or even most of our knowledge the fuzzy area in between the two. Discuss the difficulties of attempts to draw a clear line between the two categories in at least two areas of knowledge. The question of the definition of true and false has for centuries of western civilization baffled the greatest of philosophers. The question being not just simply th

Blaise Pascal
Blaise Pascal Blaise Pascal was born at Clermont on June 19, 1623, and died in Paris on Aug. 19, 1662. His father, a local judge at Clermont, and himself of some scientific reputation, moved to Paris in 1631, for two main reasons, to prosecute his own scientific studies, and to carry on the education of his only son, who had already displayed exceptional ability. Pascal was kept at home in order to ensure his not being overworked. Surprisingly, Pascal’s family directed his education to foreign l
UFOs
UFOs
UFOs UFOs are a hot, controversial subject. We still don\'t know what these objects are, or whether they really exist. Conventional wisdom tells us that the majority of ufo sightings are false reports, fueled by mass hysteria, and people who tend to be mentally unstable. What if we believed UFOs exist? How do we rationally explain UFO behavior? Witnesses report time, and time again incredible right angle turns at enormous velocities, and instant stops. There have been reports that UFOs change th

Astronomers Part One Brief Descriptions of the Following Astronomers: Walter Baade : Baade was a German-born American, whose work gave new estimates for the age and size of the universe. During the wartime, blackouts aided his observatons and allowed him to indentify and classify stars in a new and useful way, and led him to increase and improve Hubble\'s values for the size and age of the universe (to the great relief of geologists.) He also worked on supernovae and radiostars. Milton Humason :

There is a new global infrastructure currently in place that allows instant access to information anywhere in the world. An essential component of this new infrastructure is the host machine - the computer.

Marie Curie The woman destined to be known worldwide as Madame Curie was born Marie Sklodowska in Warsaw, Poland, on Nov. 7, 1867. The Sklodowskas were members of the impoverished Polish bourgeoisie, and her father struggled to support his large family as a high school teacher of physics and mathematics. He was apparently a brilliant man, and Marie learned both from his example and from his hands-on teaching, developing into a brilliant young student herself. But her mother suffered from tubercu

I chose this book because it offers a history of an actual human event that had an effect on the future of how we view biology around us. This book will show me how the cholera outbreak of 1854 in London started, progressed, and ended and also how they were able to find the source of the outbreak. I prefer to read

Yes, my results support the hypothesis because as you increase the weight, it requires more force to pull the block of wood across the surface. For example, when the weight was at 100g, it only required … but when the weight was at 200g it required … which shows there was an increase in the force. Did you get anomalies? Yes, I did get anomalies while doing the investigation, an anomaly is a result which does not fit the

Life experience vs Book knowledge Our culture emphasizes knowledge wherever you go. Day by day knowledge whether its practical or visual becomes more important to us. It helps us to develop the co mmunity and society we live in. knowledge shapes the personality of the human being, and the way they deal with problems in their daily routine. Also, it's a huge tool for us to reach our goals and achieve t he dreams we have. As they said when we were kids and growing up Knowledge is power. I t's t

TOK 11 2017 - Safa Azzam SCIENCE VS PSEUDOSCIENCE The application of reason differentiates a scientific theory from pseudoscience.  Reason, as a way of knowing, is the capacity to think beyond immediate experiences. Reasoning is used to build knowledge and to evaluate it. It is closely linked to logic, the deducing of valid conclusions from given starting points or premises. Inductive reasoning supports general statements with statements while deductive reasoning goes from the general to t

I'm inclined to agree with Dennett, as explained in Why the Mystery, that there is simply no place or process or anything else that corresponds to the conscious bit of the brain's activities. (page 15) There's no conscious center of the brain, where everything is filtered through, and yet the brain itself is the center. It is the collection of activities that gives rise to consciousness. Just like consciousness, we know gravity exists but we still cannot explain it. We know that objects attra

The Solar System Dealing with planets, galaxies, comets, meteors, and stars, astronomy is the science which studies the astral bodies. Astronomy also provides the basis for other physics-related sciences such as astrophysics and cosmology. The main staples of astronomy include: the solar system, nearby stars, asteroids, galaxies, and comets. The Solar System Newton\'s law of gravitation concluded that a force was present between the sun and each of the planets, which caused a strong attraction.
