But the first person to truly study the planet was Asaph Hall, who also discovered the two satellites of Mars, giving them the names Phobos (fear) and Deimos (terror), this happened in 1877 and since then scientists have not given [...]
Venus, goddess of love and also, a distant, mysterious planet. In our race for survival, where the ultimate prize is death. We sometimes miss so much of what surrounds us at every turn. Miracles are all around us and it's no joke. Take wind, for example. A destructive force capable of destroying entire cities. But we can't even see it. To feel it, but not to see it. We are so used to it that we don't even think about what the wind is?
The name of this planet comes from the tradition of the ancient astronomers of Babylon, who, through Greek culture, associated the characteristics of the various planets with the features of the Olympian gods. So it makes sense that the fastest planet bears the name of a messenger of the gods in winged sandals. By the way, in Rome this god became the patron saint of thieves and dexterity, but in this the planet is not like him: the [...]

The scientist won the Nobel Prize (jointly with John McLeod) for his discovery in 1923. The year before this event. In January 1922 the young doctor saved a life for the first time in history by injecting insulin into a 14-year-old boy suffering from severe [...]

The hushed audience in the crowded theatre, frozen.Tension, like an ominous cloud, hung in the air.A snap of the fingers and the show begins. It is the evening of 1891 and Nikola Tesla is on stage. A moment and a red, fiery ball of fire flashes in his hand. The man, like a god, manipulates the flame, moving it closer and closer to his white tailcoat and then to his black hair. The astonishment of the audience is limitless, the magician [...]
