Galilean telescopeGalileo's_Telescope

The original design Galileo came up with in 1609 is commonly called a Galilean telescope. It uses a convex objective lens and a concave eyepiece lens. Galilean telescopes produce upright images.

Galileo’s best telescope magnified objects about 30 times. Because of flaws in its design, such as the shape of the lens, the images were blurry and distorted. Despite these flaws, the telescope was still good enough for Galileo to explore the sky. The Galilean telescope could view the phases of Venus, and was the first to see craters on the Moon and four moons orbiting Jupiter. – via source

Galileo Galilei (15 February 1564[2] – 8 January 1642)[1][3] was an Italian physicistmathematician,  astronomer, and philosopher who played a major role in the Scientific Revolution. His achievements include improvements to the telescope and consequent astronomical observations, and support for Copernicanism. Galileo has been called the “father of modern observational astronomy,”[4] the “father of modern physics,”[5] the “father of science,”[5] and “the Father of Modern Science.”[6] Stephen Hawking says, “Galileo, perhaps more than any other single person, was responsible for the birth of modern science.”[7] – via source

perseids09

The Perseids (pronounced /?p?rsi?.?dz/ us dict: pûr?·s?·?dz) are a prolific meteor showerassociated with the comet Swift-Tuttle. The Perseids are so called because the point they appear to come from, called the radiant, lies in the constellation Perseus. Meteor showers occur when Earth moves through a meteor stream. The stream in this case is called the Perseid cloud and it stretches along the orbit of the Comet Swift-Tuttle. The cloud consists of particles ejected by the comet as it passed by the Sun. Most of the dust in the cloud today is approximately a thousand years old. However, there is also a relatively young filament of dust in the stream that was pulled off the comet in 1862. The rate of meteors originating from this filament is much higher than for the older part of the stream. read more at source.

4ppl3_vs_g00gl3Over the past three decades, a few titanic rivalries have defined the technology industry’s megatrends, ultimately determining which products eventually end up in consumers’ and companies’ hands.

Now, adding to the annals of competition that include Microsoft’s (MSFT) clashes with Apple (AAPL) in the ’80s, IBM (IBM) in the ’90s, and Google (GOOG) in this decade, the new defining rivalry in tech may be between Google and Apple. Google CEO Eric Schmidt‘s resignation from Apple’s board on Aug. 3 highlights the degree to which these companies are more foe than friend.

By most measures—revenue growth, stock appreciation, magazine cover stories—Apple and Google are the two most successful and influential companies of the past decade. Yet their visions for how the computer industry will shape up in the next one could hardly diverge more. “They are both very innovative companies with very different ways of innovating,” says Henry Chesbrough, director of the Center for Open Innovation at the University of California at Berkeley. “They’ve both been very successful, but there’s a contest of different approaches going on here.”
