  Anders Celsius (1701-1744)
Anders Celsius, born in Uppsala, was one of a large number of scientists (all related) originating from Ovanåker in the province of Hälsingland.
Celsius, who was said to have been very talented in mathematics from an early age, was appointed professor of astronomy in 1730.
Celsius published most of his work in the publications of the Royal Society of Sciences in Uppsala, which is the oldest Swedish scientific society founded in 1710, where Celsius was the secretary 1725-1744, and in the publications of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, founded in 1739.

  Celsius - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Celsius scale sets 0.01 °C to be at the triple point of water and a degree Celsius to be 1/273.16 of the difference in temperature between the triple point of water and absolute zero.
In the original scale devised by Anders Celsius the boiling point of water at 1,000 millibars was defined as 0 degrees and the freezing point of water was defined as 100 degrees, exactly the reverse of the modern Celsius scale.
The current official definition of the Celsius scale sets 0.01 °C to be at the triple point of water and a degree to be 1/273.16 of the difference in temperature between the triple point of water and absolute zero.

Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32); Tc = temperature in degrees Celsius, Tf = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit
Tf = (9/5)*Tc+32; Tc = temperature in degrees Celsius, Tf = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit
Centigrade means "consisting of or divided into 100 degrees;" the Celsius scale, devised by Swedish Astronomer Andres Celsius (1701-1744) for scientific purposes, has 100 degrees between the freezing point of 0 degrees and boiling point of 100 degrees of pure water at sea level air pressure, 29.92 inches of mercury.

 Super Scientists - Anders Celsius
Celsius was born in Uppsala where he succeeded his father as professor of astronomy in 1730.
Celsius' fixed scale for measuring temperature defines zero degrees as the temperature at which water freezes, and 100 degrees as the temperature at which water boils.
This scale, an inverted form of Celsius' original design, was adopted as the standard and is still used in almost all scientific work.

 Anders Celsius Biography | World of Physics
It is ironic that its inventor, Anders Celsius, the inventor of the Celsius scale, was primarily an astronomer and did not conceive of his temperature scale until shortly before his death.
Celsius' unique and lasting contribution was the modification of assigning the freezing and boiling points of water as the constant temperatures at either end of the scale.
Celsius originally called his scale centigrade (from the Latin for "hundred steps"), and for years it was simply referred to as the Swedish thermometer.

 Celsius - Simple English Wikipedia
Celsius (more precisely, a degree Celsius), sometimes called centigrade, is a unit of measurement used in many countries to measure temperature.
For example 0 degrees celsius, which is the temperature at which water freezes, is 273 kelvins.
For example 310 K is the same temperature as 37 °C, which is about the temperature of a human body.

 Nordic Culture > Anders Celsius, Swedish astronomer and physicist - Scandinavica.com
From 1735 to 1737 Celsius took part in earth measuring expeditions to the Ecuator and to Torneå in Swedish Lapland, after which he confirmed the theory of Newton that the shape of the earth is an ellipsoid flattened at the poles.
Celsius' participation in this expedition made him famous and gave him the support of the Swedish authorities to build a modern observatory in Uppsala, which was finished in 1741 with the most modern instrumental technology at that time.
Celsius traveled many times to Lapland to study the Aurora Borealis, where he realized the changes of the Earth's magnetic field at the time of the Northern lights and discovered that the Aurora's magnetic activity influences compass needles.

 HighBeam Encyclopedia - Celsius temperature scale   (Site not responding. Last check: )
CELSIUS TEMPERATURE SCALE [Celsius temperature scale], temperature scale according to which the temperature difference between the reference temperatures of the freezing and boiling points of water is divided into 100 degrees.
The Celsius scale is widely known as the centigrade scale because it is divided into 100 degrees.
Temperatures on the Celsius scale can be converted to equivalent temperatures on the Fahrenheit temperature scale by multiplying the Celsius temperature by 9/5 and adding 32° to the result, according to the formula 9 C /5+32= F.

Für andere Bedeutungen von Celsius siehe Celsius (Begriffsklärung).
Nach Regeln der Organe der internationalen Meterkonvention darf der Grad Celsius auch zusammen mit SI-Vorsätzen benutzt werden, nach deutschem Einheitenrecht jedoch nicht; diese nationale Regelung ist nicht in die deutsche Normung des DIN (DIN 1301-1, DIN 1345) übernommen.
Eine Temperatur (zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt in einem bestimmten Punkt) bleibt auch dann gleich, wenn der Wert in Grad Celsius, Kelvin oder einer anderen Temperatureinheit angegeben wird:

 Celsius   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Celsius temperature scale was designed that the freezing point of water is 0 degrees and the boiling is 100 degrees at standard atmospheric pressure.
In 1948 the system's name was officially changed Celsius by the 9th General Conference on Weights and Measures (CR 64) both in recognition of himself and to eliminate confusion caused by with the SI (metric) use of the centi- prefix.
The Celsius scale is used throughout most the world for day-to-day purposes though in media it was still frequently referred to centigrade until the late 1980s or early 1990s particularly by weather forecasters on European such as the BBC ITV and RTÉ.

 Anders Celsius - Wikipedia
Anders Celsius wurde auf dem Gut Doma in Ovanåker/Hälsingland geboren, studierte an der Universität Uppsala und wurde dort 1730 Professor.
Anders Celsius definierte die nach ihm benannte Temperaturskala Grad Celsius.
Das Revolutionäre war, dass Celsius vorgeschlagen hatte, sie als universelle Skala zu benutzen, um Temperaturen in der ganzen Welt zu vergleichen: Im Gegensatz zu anderen Forschern notierte er bei der genauen Bestimmung der Fixpunkte auch den herrschenden Luftdruck (760 mm auf der Quecksilbersäule) und legte so genaue Messbedingungen fest.

 "Celsius 41.11" - Salon
"Celsius 41.11" tells us in no uncertain terms that Bush won the election fair and square, that weapons of mass destruction kind of existed in Iraq, that John Kerry may mean well but is unfit to lead our country, and that the PATRIOT Act is designed to protect Americans, not hinder their civil liberties.
But "Celsius 41.11" is so bad it's almost like performance art, or those cheap records from the '60s, where the Chipmunks sing the Beatles' greatest hits.
The title of "Celsius 41.11" is, thankfully, explained near the beginning of the film as the temperature at which the brain begins to die, a ghoulish little factoid that I guess is supposed to dance feverishly in our heads as we lie tucked into our beds on election eve.

 Celsius temperature scale
In 1742 the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius published a paper in the "Kungliga Swenska Wetenskaps Academiens Handlingar", the Annals of the Royal Swedish Academy of Science, entitled "Observations on two persistent degrees on a thermometer".
The idea to use the freezing point of water as a temperature calibration point was not new and had already been suggested by Reamur and Newton as well as by the less well-known contemporary scientists Martins, Weitbrecht and Poleni.
Celsius thus put the boiling point at 0 degrees and the freezing point at 100.

 History of the Celsius temperature scale
Celsius thermometer (attached to a barometer) made by J.G. Hasselström, Stockholm, late 18th century.
Anders Celsius should be recognized as the first to perform and publish careful experiments aiming at the definition of an international temperature scale on scientific grounds.
Celsius was accustomed to the Réaumur thermometer, but he also used a thermometer made by the French astronomer Joseph-Nicolas Delisle with zero at the boiling point, thus creating a reversed scale with increasing numbers for decreasing temperatures, but avoiding negative numbers.

 Daniel Fahrenheit, Anders Celsius Left Their Marks, Alaska Science Forum
Celsius was an astronomer who was born in Uppsala, Sweden in 1701 and died there 43 years later.
A 100-degree scale had been used before Celsius began experimenting with thermometers, but it was his paper, "Observations on two persistent degrees on a thermometer" that earned his monogram a spot on everyone's thermometer.
After he died, his scale was inverted to what we know now as the Celsius scale, with zero representing the freezing point of water at standard atmospheric pressure and 100 the boiling point.
