Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (May 7, 1840 [O.S. April 25] – November 6, 1893 [O.S. October 25]) was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. Tchaikovsky wrote music across a range of genres, including symphony, opera, ballet, instrumental, chamber and song. He wrote some of the most popular concert and theatrical music in the current classical repertoire, including the ballets Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker, as well as the 1812 Overture, his First Piano Concerto, his last three numbered symphonies, and the opera Eugene Onegin.

Born into a middle-class family, Tchaikovsky was educated towards a career as a civil servant, despite the musical precocity he had demonstrated. Against the wishes of his family, he chose to pursue a musical career, and, in 1862, he entered the Saint Petersburg Conservatory, graduating in 1865. The formal, Western-oriented training he received set him apart from the contemporary nationalistic movement embodied by the influential group of young Russian composers known as The Five, with whom Tchaikovsky sustained a mixed professional relationship throughout his career.

Pi Day – Google Doodle

Pi Approximation Day is celebrated on July 22 due to popular approximation of pi of Archimedes’ 22 / 7. However, this can be misleading, since all the dates cited are days “approach” (as pi is an irrational number) and 22 / 7 is actually a little closer than 3.14 pi. Typically, March 14 is more popular in countries that use the format month / day (22 / 7 is a possible date in this format), and July 22 is more popular in countries using the format day / month (from 3 / 14 and 31 / 4 dates are impossible in this format).

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
