Yugoslavia - Sokol Rally in Belgrade

A rally to promoting public exercise as a way to stimulate national self importance (through organised gymnastic and athletic demonstrations - usually mass-participation). The Sokol (which translates as Falcon') arose as the first Czech Gymnastic organisation in the 1860s. Between the First and Second World Wars the organisation grew to have a million members. The Sokol programmes were organised to have mass appeal across all strata of society and across all age groups. This rally poster is from Yugoslavia

Edwin Hubble, US astronomer

Edwin Hubble. Caricature of the US astronomer, cosmologist, athlete and boxer Edwin Powell Hubble (1889-1953) smoking a pipe. In 1923 Hubble profoundly changed our understanding of the universe by confirming the existence of galaxies other than our own when he observed Cepheid variable stars in the Andromeda nebula, proving it was a galaxy. He later introduced the classification of galaxies (spirals, barred spirals, ellipticals). In 1929, he announced Hubble's Law, which showed that galaxies move apart faster the further away they are, key evidence for the expansion of the universe

Leg muscles in running. Artwork showing the muscles in the leg of a runner.

The leg muscles are used in walking and running, producing the movements that raise and lower the legs, and bend the hip and knee joints. They are skeletal muscles, under conscious control and attached to the hip and leg bones by tendons. They are also enclosed in fascia, membranes that divide them into regions called compartments
