The greatest astronomer of antiquity was Hipparchus (190–120 BC). Shortly thereafter, when it became common to use wedge-shaped, rather than rounded, styluses for indicating numbers and words, the circles were replaced by a kind of sideways V shape formed by rotating the end of the stylus in the clay; the half-circles were replaced by thin wedge-shaped vertical marks produced by simply pressing the stylus edge into the clay, and the size and depth of the marks became uniform.

Although some writers and publishers did present the sciences in a secular manner, as Huxley and Tyndall would have liked, they did not have a monopoly. The books in Praeger’s series on the Ancient World address different topics from various perspectives.

There is little evidence of change prior to around 2750 B. This was done by giving a value for each position in incremental of 10. Until now, most policy and research has focused on adapting to specific amounts of climate change and not on how fast that climate change might happen. For example, within the metals category, 16 forms of gold are listed, 9 of which are distinguished solely by color, and among white stones, five different types are identified based on their degree of hardness and on whether they effervesced in contact with what we know as acids ( Forbes 1963, Vol. 7).

E., military control of the empire was separated from the Emperor, whose power became largely symbolic and religious and whose function was primarily to serve as an arbiter in conflicts among de facto independent regional lords. But while the Indian theorists identified wind or breath as the third humor, Philolaus identified blood as his third (Jouanna 1999). The president remarked: "In no department of science or of the arts does this discovery promise to be so eminently useful as in that of astronomy… The practical astronomer is interrupted in his pursuit, is diverted from his task of observation, by the irksome labour of computation;…" Before the first electronic computers became available to astronomers, many observatories employed humans referred to as computers for this "irksome labour of computation."

The curriculum is also sufficiently flexible so that the student can plan a minor or course sequence in such areas as astronomy, optics, materials science, mathematics, biological or chemical sciences, engineering, or computer science. This collection was written down by the priestly class with the development of writing sometime around 500 B. Growing interest in astrophysics and in distant stars and nebulae encouraged the development of new observatories with large steerable reflecting (light focused by a curved mirror) telescopes suitable for photography and auxiliary instruments for the analysis of starlight.
