  Revolution in Earth and Space Science Education - Brief History of Earth Science Education
While elements of geology, astronomy, physical geography, and environmental sciences were taught in schools at the turn of the 20th century, today's Earth science courses are a recent addition to K-12 education.
Science teaching at academies, however, was not always of high quality and often consisted of courses as short as six weeks, with inadequately prepared teachers and poor or non-existent textbooks.
The 219 remaining chapters were coded to match the four Earth science themes resulting in 120 chapters devoted to geology, 34 to meteorology, 23 to oceanography, and 42 to space sciences.

 Science Quotes
Science is nothing but trained and organized common sense differing from the latter only as a veteran may differ from a raw recruit: and its methods differ from those of common sense only as far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.
Science is facts; just as houses are made of stone, so is science made of facts; but a pile of stones is not a house, and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.
Experimental science is the queen of sciences and the goal of all speculation.

 Declaration of the Use of Human Embryonic Stem Cells - Science Ministries
These ES cells, however, are only the point of departure for the preparation of differentiated cell lines, that is, of cells with the characteristics proper of the various tissues (muscle, neural, epithelial, haematic, germinal, etc.).
The results of these experiments had a great impact on the world of both science and biotechnology -- especially medicine and pharmacology -- no less than the world of business and the mass media.
Indeed, persistent efforts are being made to rescind definitively the present legal ban on the use of federal funds for research on human embryos.

 Making the Modern World - Icons Of Invention - Science - 1750-1820
The first circular dividing engine was completed in about 1774 by Jesse Ramsden, earning an award from the Board of Longitude - the body that ultimately rewarded the chronometer pioneer John Harrison.
This machine is believed to be a close copy of Ramsden's engine, completed by John Troughton in 1778.
Although using a dividing engine was faster than hand-dividing, it was backbreaking work for the operator, who had to lean over the engine.
