The mechanism of the planet Earth is in constant motion by the forces raging in the heart of the planet. This process began 4 billion 600 million years ago when the Earth first formed. While she was a ball of molten lava. Over millions of years it has cooled down, and it formed a solid crust. Through cracks in the crust broke new kind of lava. It was easier and shaped plates on the surface of the cortex, which then began to land.

Arguably the world's most famous work of art, millions of people visit it every year. Until now however nobody has been able to explain exactly what the Sistine Chapel's ceiling is actually trying to tell us. Though important and timely the film (airing as it does to celebrate the 500th birthday of the work) it is also the product of the detective work and obsessive scholarship by art critic Waldemar Januszczak which spans the last 30 years.

The Universal History of Numbers: From Prehistory to the Invention of the Computer

The Universal History of Numbers: From Prehistory to the Invention of the Computer by Georges Ifrah
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons | 2000 | ISBN: 0471393401 | 656 pages | DJVU | 19,5 MB

The title doesn't lie. Mathematician Georges Ifrah's masterpiece, The Universal History of Numbers, is a wonderfully comprehensive overview of numbers and counting spanning all the inhabited continents as far back in time as records will allow us to look. Beyond the ancient Babylonians, Sumerians, and Indians, Ifrah takes us farther south into Africa to examine an early decimal counting system and into ancient Mexico to reconstruct what we can of the Mayan calendar and numerical system. The 27 chapters are chiefly organized by culture, though there are some cross-cultural overviews of topics like letters and numbers.
