  Science - LoveToKnow 1911
The beginnings of physical science are to be sought in the slow and unconscious observation by primitive races of men of natural occurrences, such as the apparent movements of the heavenly bodies, and in the gradually The acquired mastery over the rude implements by the oori gin f s cience.
From the land of Asia the Greeks took their earliest ideas of science, and it is to the Ionian philosophers, of whom Thales of Miletus (580 B.C.) is regarded as the first, that we must turn for the earliest known example of an advance on the mythological view of nature.
Such considerations show us that science is in reality one, though we may agree to look on it now from one side and now from another as we approach it from the standpoint of physics, physiology or psychology.

 Science and the Church
Church, in connexion with science, theoretically means any Church that claims authority in matters of doctrine and teaching; practically, however, only the Catholic Church is in question, on account of her universality and her claim of power to exercise this authority.
The greatest obstacle to anti-Christian science is the Church, which claims Divine origin, authority to teach infallible truth, maintains the inspiration of Scripture, and is confident of her own existence to the end of the world.
The formal object of each particular science is certainly different from faith just as the steering of a vessel is different from the knowledge of the stars; but the exclusion of all guiding lights beyond the billows of scientific opinions and hypotheses is entirely arbitrary, unwise, and disastrous.

The months when the papers were submitted to the journal suggests that most of the work was done in 1904 and early 1905, a conclusion supported by Einstein's letters to friends and peers.
Unless, according to the dominant theory in 1905, the physicists were measuring the speed of light.
His 1905 work with mass and energy had nothing to do with the later physics of nuclear fission.

 Fakultet for realfag - Science in Scandinavia - Conference   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Aspects of modernisation and internationalisation at the periphery of European science with particular reference to the Einstein year 2005 and the centenary of the dissolution of the Union between Norway and Sweden.
Around 1905, strategies for the internationalisation of science were designed in the Scandinavian countries.
Today, with our present intense debates on the strategies of internationalisation and national consolidation in all political and cultural spheres (including economy, science, and education), a lot can potentially be learned from similar discussions a hundred years ago, from their promises and failures.

 Setting The Scene - Science, Humanity and Interaction
Complexity science relates to the formal study of complex systems, but it is not another specialist subject (in the sense that we can regard geology, genetics and anthropology say).
These alternative states are widely studied in the complexity sciences, both in terms of what attractors exist, and in how systems move between them and learn new ones over time (as in the brain), and this study also includes the genetic search for better possibilities underlying evolution.
This overall viewpoint is rather different than that usually taken in science, and involves many different philosophical assumptions or axioms, which instead treat our world as one interconnected whole whose apparent divisions (those 'boxes' we create) are simply human simplifications and prove to be largely arbitrary.

 Einstein, Albert (1879-1955) -- from Eric Weisstein's World of Scientific Biography
German-American physicist who, in 1905, published three papers, each of which had a profound effect on the development of physics.
The equation Einstein derived was verified experimentally by Millikan in 1916.
In a recommendation for Einstein's membership in the Prussian Academy of Science, the sponsors wrote "In sum, one can say that there is hardly one among the great problems in which modern physics is so rich to which Einstein has not made a remarkable contribution.

Bilham, R., Slow tilt reversal of the Lesser Himalaya between 1862 and 1992 at 78°E, and bounds to the southeast rupture of the 1905 Kangra earthquake, Geophys.
The seismic zonation map of India has notable gaps in and south of the Himalaya, where great earthquakes have not occurred in the past 200-300 years but where they are likely to occur in the future.
The 1905 Kangra earthquake is now believed to have been a M=7.8 event (Ambraseys and Bilham, 2000) whose rupture zone did not approach Dehra Dun as hitherto believed (Bilham, 2001).

 Science-tician? Poincaré
His memory was remarkable and he retained much from all the texts he read but not in the manner of learning by rote, rather by linking the ideas he was assimilating particularly in a visual way.
He also showed that series expansions previously used in studying the 3-body problem were convergent, but not in general uniformly convergent, so putting in doubt the stability proofs of Lagrange and Laplace.
He was elected to the Académie des Sciences in 1887 and in 1906 was elected President of the Academy.

Using technology as a tool for science inquiry by pupils in the school science classroom and laboratory is the central theme of the ASTE position statement.
Science process skills were emphasized, and the school science laboratory was the center of learning.
It is therefore the position of the Association for Science Teacher Education that the qualified science teacher educator should possess a strong knowledge base in understanding how implementing technology in science curricular contexts may be used to promote the teaching and learning of science.

Of his research published in 1905, Einstein thought only his first paper on the nature of light was "revolutionary." In his second, he proved the existence and size of molecules.
Combining kinetic, atomic and hydrodynamic science, he deduced that Brownian motion was the result of random collisions between particles, seen and unseen.
His work cemented the idea that all matter – liquid, gas and solid – is composed of discrete atoms and molecules, and that these particles can be studied and tested.

 Science and Pseudoscience
Science and Pseudoscience is Lakatos's most succinct public summary of his philosophy of science.
He proposes that scientists regard the successful theoretical prediction of stunning novel facts - such as the return of Halley's comet or the gravitational bending of light rays - as what demarcates good scientific theories from pseudo-scientific and degenerate theories, and in spite of all scientific theories being forever confronted by "an ocean of counterexamples".
Some historical case studies in Lakatos's methodology were published in Method and Appraisal in the Physical Sciences: the critical background to modern science 1800 to 1905, edited by Colin Howson and Method and Appraisal in Economics edited by Dr Spiro Latsis, both published by Cambridge University Press, 1976.

 Science Quotes and Sayings
Science is facts; just as houses are made of stones, so is science made of facts; but a pile of stones is not a house and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.  ~Henri Poincaré
The radical novelty of modern science lies precisely in the rejection of the belief, which is at the heart of all popular religion, that the forces which move the stars and atoms are contingent upon the preferences of the human heart.  ~Walter Lippmann
Science is built up of facts, as a house is built of stones; but an accumulation of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.  ~Henri Poincaré, Science and Hypothesis, 1905

 Random House Publishing Group | The Value of Science by Henri Poincare
More than any other writer of the twentieth century, Henri Poincaré brought the elegant, but often complicated, ideas about science and mathematics to the general reader.
A genius who throughout his life solved complex mathematical calculations in his head, and a writer gifted with an inimitable style, Poincaré rose to the challenge of interpreting the philosophy of science to scientists and nonscientists alike.
This volume collects his three most important books: Science and Hypothesis (1903); The Value of Science (1905); and Science and Method (1908).

Scientists call 1905 Albert Einstein's annus mirabilis -- year of miracles -- when he published a series of papers that radically transformed the way we understand the world.
On this day in 1905, Albert Einstein submitted the paper that laid out the formula.
