Seite 399 - The fundamental conditions are : — 1. That aqueous vapour and carbon compounds are present in stellar or interplanetary space. 2. That these gaseous compounds are capable of being dissociated by radiant solar energy while in a state of extreme attenuation. 3. That...
Seite 14 - Approach thou now the lap of earth, thy mother, the wide-extending earth, the ever-kindly ; A maiden soft as wool to him who comes with gifts, she shall protect thee from destruction's bosom. Open thyself, O earth, and press not heavily, be easy of access and of approach to him ; As mother with her robe her child, so do thou cover him, O earth...

He knows, indeed, that the laws assumed by Euclid are true with an accuracy that no direct experiment can approach, not only in this place where we are, but in places at a distance from us that no astronomer has conceived ; but he knows this as of Here and Now ; beyond his range is a There and Then of which he knows nothing at present, but may ultimately come to know more.
Seite 63 - Now, suppose that three points are taken in space, distant from one another as far as the sun is from a Centauri, and that the shortest distances between these points are drawn so as to form a triangle. And suppose the angles of this triangle to be very accurately measured and added together ; this can at present be done so accurately that the error shall certainly be less than one minute, less therefore than the five-thousandth part of a right angle. Then I do not know that this sum would differ...
Seite 171 - Antennae }, in male filiform, moderately ciliated (1), basal joint elongate, without pecten. Labial palpi long, recurved, second joint thickened with dense scales, forming a short dense triangular projecting tuft towards apex beneath, terminal joint longer than second, slightly roughened anteriorly, acute.

So,, you see, there is a real parallel between the work of Copernicus and his successors on the one hand, and the work of Lobatchewsky and his successors on the other.
