Stephenson's Rocket Featured Print

Stephenson's Rocket

Stephenson's 'Rocket', historical artwork. Stephenson's Locomotive Railway Carriage, patented in 1829, competed in trials held by the Liverpool and Manchester Railway Company at Rainhill. It completed 20 laps of the course and attained a top speed of 38 kilometres per hour, enough to win the competition. New features in its design included a multi-tube boiler with 25 copper tubes and a blast pipe to increase the efficiency of the boiler. The Rocket was designed by George Stephenson and his son Robert, with the assistance of Henry Booth. Published in History and progress of the steam engine, England, 1830.

Watson and Crick, DNA discovers Featured Print

Watson and Crick, DNA discovers

Watson and Crick. Caricature of the molecular biologists and discoverers of the structure of DNA James Watson (born 1928, left) and Francis Crick (1916-2004), with their model of a DNA molecule. Watson, an American, and Crick, British, met at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, in 1951. Their work on DNA was performed with a knowledge of Chargaff's ratios of the bases in DNA and access to the X-ray crystallography of Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin at King's College London. Combining this knowledge led to the deduction that DNA exists as a double helix. Crick, Watson and Wilkins shared the 1962 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, Franklin having died in 1958.

Baruch Spinoza, caricature Featured Print

Baruch Spinoza, caricature

Baruch Spinoza. Caricature of the Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677). Spinoza is considered to be one of Western philosophy's most important philosophers. He believed that nothing exists independently except for God, and that everything that exists does so as a part of God. He considered the Universe and Nature to be God, rather than the personalised Judeo-Christian deity. He was expelled from Holland's Jewish community for these heretical views. His seminal work, Ethics (1677), outlined these views and has become one of the most important early modern philosophical works.
