Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Anton Maria Schyrleus of Rheita (1604-1660) was an astronomer and optician. He developed several inverting and erecting eyepieces, and was the maker of Kepler's telescope. "Things appear more alive with the binocular telescope," he wrote, "doubly as exact so to speak, as well as large and bright." His binocular telescope is the precursor to our binoculars. Two different stories exist about his early life. The most popular account holds that he is of Czech origin, born in 1597. According to this story he was a priest and a member of the order of Capuchin friars at Rheita, Bohemia, hence his name. At the outbreak of the Thirty Years' War in 1618, he left the order and established himself in Belgium.

The first comprehensive history of the Information Age... how we got there and where we are going The exchange of information is essential for both the organization of nature and the social life of mankind. Until recently, communication between people was more or less limited by geographic proximity. Today, thanks to ongoing innovations in telecommunications, we live in an Information Age where distance has ceased to be an obstacle to the sharing of ideas. The Worldwide History of Telecommunications is the first comprehensive history ever written on the subject, covering every aspect of telecommunications from a global perspective. In clear, easy-to-understand language, the author presents telecommunications as a uniquely human achievement, dependent on the contributions of many ingenious inventors, discoverers, physicists, and engineers over a period spanning more than two centuries. From the crude signaling methods employed in antiquity all the way to today’s digital era, The Worldwide History of Telecommunications features complete and fascinating coverage of the groundbreaking innovations that have served to make telecommunications the largest industry on earth, including: Optical telegraphy Electrical telegraphy via wires and cables Telephony and telephone switching Radio transmission technologies Cryptography Coaxial and optical fiber networks Telex and telefax Multimedia applications Broad in scope, yet clear and logical in its presentation, this groundbreaking book will serve as an invaluable resource for anyone involved or merely curious about the ever evolving field of telecommunications.

Pasteurization, penicillin, Koch's postulates, and gene coding. These discoveries and inventions are vital yet commonplace in modern life, but were radical when first introduced to the public and academia. In this book, the life and times of leading pioneers in microbiology are discussed in vivid detail, focusing on the background of each discovery and the process in which they were developed — sometimes by accident or sheer providence.

Unter dem Titel Kosmos und Zahl prasentieren Wissenschaftshistoriker aus den USA, aus Russland, England, Frankreich und Deutschland Originalarbeiten zur Astronomie- und Mathematikgeschichte, die durch Beitrage aus der Leibniz- und Alexander-von-Humboldt-Forschung fokussiert und erganzt werden. Der ubergreifende und in der Vielfalt der Themen und Handschriften dominierende Ansatz besteht darin, Edition und Forschung als komplementare Seiten einer historischen Grundlagenforschung zu begreifen. Somit nehmen die hier veroffentlichten Studien und systematischen Analysen ihren Ausgangspunkt bei neuesten Ergebnissen der Editionsarbeit. Die Autoren dieses Bandes stellen dieses Zusammenwirken von Edition und Forschung unter Beweis. Die hier vorliegenden Arbeiten verdeutlichen die Dynamik einer Wissenschaftsgeschichtsschreibung, die im Spannungsfeld von Quellenerschliessung und philosophie- wie kulturgeschichtlicher Kontextualisierung steht
