 James Cook and the Transit of Venus
Their mission was to reach Tahiti before June 1769, establish themselves among the islanders, and construct an astronomical observatory.
The size of the solar system was one of the chief puzzles of 18th century science, much as the nature of dark matter and dark energy are today.
In fact, when all was said and done, observations of Venus' 1769 transit from 76 points around the globe, including Cook's, were not precise enough to set the scale of the solar system.

 Social Science Knowledge: A Report on Institutionalization
The concept of structure was established, borrowed from the physical and biological sciences, in studies of the state beginning with Hobbes and in economic writings of the Physiocrats and Adam Smith.
Economics then was not a "human science", developed by philosophers in the faculty of letters, and was no longer a "political science", developed by civil servants in relation to problems of state administration[, and could thus claim autonomy].
Political science was the last of the social sciences to emerge as an institutional complex of university departments, associations and scholarly journals.

Smoking appears to be more harmful to the arteries of whites than to Chinese, according to a study in the 1 September issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine.
But genes are also a possibility, says population geneticist Mark Shriver of the Allegheny University of the Health Sciences in Pittsburgh, who observes that the only way to find out what's protecting the Chinese would be a study of a thoroughly acculturated migrant population.

 Georges Cuvier (1769-1832)
George Cuvier was one of the most influential figures in science during the early nineteenth century.
A self-appointed referee of proper science from his stronghold in the elite Académie des Sciences, Cuvier was as successful in creating his own image as a great man of science as he was in the many areas of science he studied.
Cuvier was born on 23 August 1769, at Montbéliard, a French-speaking community in the Jura Mountains then rule by the Duke of Württemberg.

On 31 May 2005, the Foton M2 capsule, housing a payload complement of 39 experiments in physical sciences, biology, fluid physics, exobiology, materials sceince and technology, was successfully launched aboard a Soyuz-U rocket from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, and spent 15.6 days in Earth orbit.
The Foton-M2 Mission Simulation Test is a vital last step in the preparation of the experiments before they are shipped to Samara, in Russia, next January.
The sixteen physical sciences experiments that underwent testing at ESTEC during early November 2004, all require some form of control or monitoring from the ground during the mission.

 The Gyllenhaal Family Tree Project: Johan Abraham Gyllenhaal
During his time at Lund Gyllenhaal had corresponded with the expert in the science of mining and governor Daniel Tilas, and this acquaintance with him facilitated his acceptance as an assistant surveyor in the college of mines.
Bergman, Hermelin and Gyllenhaal by means of their research and conclusions laid the groundwork for that science, which in Sweden had eminent spokesmen.
He was elected a research associate in the Academy of Science in 1769.

 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 then, science has “bent over backwards,” as it were, to insure objectivity and make sure it has nothing to do with religion, which many scientists reject as being too subjective.

 Cuvier, Georges (1769-1832): World of Earth Science
After Napoleon's fall, Cuvier retained his position and became an accepted authority in science and education, and earned several promotions which include a professorship at the Coll├Ęge de France and permanent secretary for the Academy of Sciences.
While Cuvier's work did not contribute any new facts to the science of anatomy, his method earned him high praise and esteem in the scientific community.
As scholars have observed, the polemic between Cuvier and Saint-Hilaire was never resolved owing to the both antagonist defended points of view, which, while seemingly opposed, contributed, as complementary views, to the progress of life sciences and Earth sciences.

 Science Testimony - July 20, 2006
Although I am replacing Dr. James Hansen on this panel, I would like to clarify that I am not representing Dr. Hansen, and I am fully responsible for my testimony.
There has been landmark progress in the science of climate change since the publication of the last IPCC report in 2001 and even in just the past one or two years, as my testimony will show.
I would characterize this progress as falling into two general categories:  (1) greatly reduced uncertainties and (2) global changes in the climate, many of which were predicted years ago based on the anticipated effects of man-made greenhouse gases, are already being observed.
