  Mars Pathfinder - Science Results Directory
The combination of spectral imaging of the landing area by the lander camera, chemical analyses aboard the rover, and close-up imaging of colors, textures and fabrics with the rover cameras offered the potential of identifying rocks (petrology and mineralogy).
The 3 instruments and rover allowed seven areas of scientific investigation: the geology and geomorphology of the surface, mineralogy and geochemistry of rocks and soils, physical properties of surface materials, magnetic properties of airborne dust, atmospheric science including aerosols, and rotational and orbital dynamics of Mars.
If the (iron-enriched) Shergottite meteorites are typical of the mantle composition, then the mantle must be warmer than Earth's (for the same pressure level) and the core radius must be larger than ~1300 km (but no larger than ~2000 km for other mantle compositions).

 History of Biology
The Babylonians were quite knowledgeable in a number of areas of science: their knowledge of astronomy was very advanced by even 1500 BC or earlier.
Because modern science distinguishes between subjective and objective and teaches us that objective is “good” and subjective is “bad,” this creates for us an increasingly wide gulf between our perceptions of phenomena and the concepts by which we explain them.
Since Darwin’s time, in Western culture, science and religion have pretty much gone their own ways at a time when new discoveries are constantly being made in science.

 PTMSC Science Topics Sponges   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The fact that they are sessile and show little movement led early observers such as Aristotle and Pliny to consider them as plants and therefore primitive.
Indeed, it was not until 1765, when internal water currents were first observed in sponges, that their animal nature was clearly established.
The level of organization of sponges is, from our human perspective, very simple since they have no definite organs, no circulatory systems, and no definable nervous systems.

This idea was reinforced by anatomical studies conducted during the 19th century and has endured, with a few modifications, until fairly recently.
Furthermore, biologists now think that the integration of these signals actually takes place in the spinal cord, not in the brain, and that the integrated information is then carried up to the brain for further processing.
They noted that the extent and duration of the response to the stimulus at the periphery could be modified.
