In 1900, a storm blew a boatload of sponge divers off course and forced them to take shelter by the tiny Mediterranean island of Antikythera. Diving the next day, they discovered a 2,000 year-old Greek shipwreck. Among the ship's cargo they hauled up was an unimpressive green lump of corroded bronze. Rusted remnants of gear wheels could be seen on its surface, suggesting some kind of intricate mechanism. The first X-ray studies confirmed that idea, but how it worked and what it was for puzzled scientists for decades. Recently, hi-tech imaging has revealed the extraordinary truth: this unique clockwork machine was the world's first computer. An array of 30 intricate bronze gear wheels, originally housed in a shoebox-size wooden case, was designed to predict the dates of lunar and solar eclipses, track the Moon's subtle motions through the sky, and calculate the dates of significant events such as the Olympic Games. No device of comparable technological sophistication is known from anywhere in the world for at least another 1,000 years. So who was the genius inventor behind it? And what happened to the advanced astronomical and engineering knowledge of its makers? NOVA follows the ingenious sleuthing that finally decoded the truth behind the amazing ancient Greek computer

Rosalind Franklin ou La véritable histoire de la découverte de l'ADN by Gary Glassman( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait du résumé figurant sur la jaquette : En 1962, James Watson, Francis Crick et Maurice Wilkins reçoivent le prix Nobel de médecine pour leur découverte de la structure de l'ADN. En 1968 Watson raconte cette aventure dans un livre qui deviendra un best-seller "La double hélice" et fait ainsi connaître au grand public une biologiste morte à 37 ans, Rosalind Franklin. Watson utilisera les remarquables clichés obtenus par diffraction de rayons X de Rosalind Franklin pour élaborer son modèle de l'ADN, mais celle-ci sera à peine mentionnée lors de la remise du prix Nobel. Née en 1920 à Londres, Rosalind Franklin devient une spécialiste de cristallographie après ses études à l'Université de Cambridge. En 1951, elle obtient un poste au King's College de Londres, où travaille Wilkins, pour créer une unité de diffraction de rayons X avec comme objectif d'élucider la structure de l'ADN. Parallèlement, Watson et Crick se passionnent également pour l'ADN au Laboratoire Cavendish de l'Université de Cambrige. Ils publient leur célèbre article dans la revue "Nature" en 1953. Une reconstitution minutieuse des événements qui se sont succédés pendant ces trois années éclaire le rôle de chacun des protagonistes et montre les difficultés que doit surmonter une femme dans un milieu essentiellement masculin. Même dans le cas idéal où elle est acceptée comme une égale, les habitudes sociales la privent de nombreux contacts avec ses pairs
