Largest of all the falcon species, the gyr falcon (Falco rusticolus) inhabits the cold and isolated arctic and sub-arctic regions.
With long broad wings, a long square tail, long stout toes, and massive pectoral muscles the gyr falcon is an immensely strong and powerful hunting bird.
Previously divided into five or six subspecies it is now considered more appropriate to classify the sub specific variation observed in gyr falcons as colour phases rather than distinct geographical races.

 The SETI League, Inc.: How Old is ET?
For the first 5 Gyr of the life of the Galaxy, there would not have been enough time for a civilisation to develop, and so ET did not exist.
At around the present time, some of those first solar-type stars will be dying at the same rate as others are forming, and so, assuming their civilisations die at the same rate as they do, the number of civilisations is then level from now on.
The median age of a civilisation is therefore the median age of those civilisations that started between 5 and 0 Gyr ago, which is 1.7 Gyr.

 Stratigraphic sequence and ages of volcanic units in the Gruithuisen region of the Moon
A recently updated and improved version of the lunar production function polynomial was used to fit measured crater size-frequency distributions of geologic units, and a cratering chronology model was applied in order to assign these units to the periods and epochs of the lunar chronology system.
The Gruithuisen domes show a much more restricted age range; they were found to range in age from 3.85 to 3.72 Gyr and thus were formed in the early part of the Late Imbrian, an older age than previously thought.
A few stratigraphically older highland units and some mare areas show ages of less than 2.0 Gyr, but these are less reliable due to (1) the crater distributions being close to saturation, (2) less effective crater retention on slopes, and (3) erosional removal of craters.

Landis & Gyr did also demonstrate the system to a larger public at meetings, fairs, congresses or exhibitions: the Democards are then given away to the visitors (or happy collectors) who have the opportunity to place free calls from site.

 Introduction
There is discrepancy between previously estimated age of GCs and the age of the universe with the bottom line that GCs are formed some time after the birth of the universe.
The delay could be at least 0.5 Gyr, for example, but less than 1 Gyr because considerable evolution has already occured in the quasar at redshift of 5 (Sandage 1993).
On the other hand, while the ages of globular clusters derived by different groups are diverse before the Hipparcos data, they are generally comparable or even larger than the age of the universe from the cosmological models.
