After he divorced her, he got married to Carvel and had one daughter, which was Lauren. He was an Astrophysicist, which means he learned about physical nature of stars and other celestial bodies. what field of science he was in. job what made him want to be an astrophysicist? He went to a boarding school in Zuoz, Switzerland, where he quickly proved to be a clever, competitive and physically and mentally aggressive individual. In college, he started studying mechanical science. After a year or so, he abandoned his study of mechanical science or physics. pictures He was famous, because his work crossed scientific and academic boundaries into astronomy, geophysics, aerospace engineering and biophysics. He got these awards, John Frederick Lewis Award, Humboldt Prize and the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society. why was he famous? why he got famous, pics and other info He contributed significant theories and conjectures on the structure of the Moon, on the effect of solar flares and storms on Earth’s atmosphere, and on the origin of the solar system and of life. some interesting info about his life: info He served as a consultant to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and in the 1960s advised on the organization’s Apollo program. In the 1970s, he began concentrating on the world’s energy supply. He generated much criticism with his theory that oil and natural gas are continually being formed through geologic processes and are not, as is commonly believed, created by decaying natural matter. pictures “Thomas Gold.” Wikipedia, Wikimedia Foundation, 15 Nov. 2019, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Gold. citations citations: “Thomas Gold.” Wikipedia, Wikimedia Foundation, 15 Nov. 2019, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Gold.

Transcript: Count Rumford Maker of the Rumford Fireplace Date of Birth and Death Count Rumford also known as Benjamin Thompson, was born on March 26, 1753 in Woburn, Massachusetts and passed away on August 21, 1814 in Paris, France. Topic 1 1 He was educated mainly at the village school, although he sometimes walked almost ten miles to Cambridge with to attend lectures by Professor John Winthrop of Harvard College. At the age of 13 he was apprenticed to John Appleton, a merchant of nearby Salem. Ben Thompson's Childhood and Education: Childhood and Education Thompson was most likely influenced by his mentor, John Appleton and in 1789, Rumford began conducting experiments concerning the nature of heat and began corresponding with Loammi Baldwin, a famous engineer, but later abandoned his studies and was caught up in the American Revolutionary war to fight for his country. What perked Rumford's interest? Topic 3 About the end of the 18th century, the theory of heat was known as the caloric theory, stating that heat was a fluid substance that flowed into bodies when they were heated and flowed out as they cooled. The success of this theory in explaining then known phenomena is used in many terms, such as "heat flow" and "calorie," still used by physicists today. During his earlier gunpowder studies, Rumford had observed certain anomalies which the caloric theory seemed to not work. Important Discoveries and other achievements Topic 4 He was knighted by King George III in 1784, and had a career of the Grand Chamberlain for some time but then he continued his studies and worked on developing newer fireplaces at the time. He also founded The Royal Institution of Great Britain. 1 Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_Thompson Britannica: https://www.britannica.com/biography/Sir-Benjamin-Thompson-Graf-von-Rumford Yourdictionary: http://biography.yourdictionary.com/count-rumford {Citations} Citations

Transcript: My Scientists name is Margaret Mead. She was an anthropologist, which is a scientist who studies human skeletal remains The reason why I am writing about her is because I wanted to learn more about her and learn more about anthropology Margaret was born on December 16 1901. Her parents are Emily Fogg Mead and Edward Sherwood Mead. She was married 3 times to Luther Cressman, Reo Fortune, and Gregory Bateson. Even though doctors repeatedly told Margaret she could not have kids, she gave birth to Mary Catherine Bateson during her third marriage with Gregory Bateson on December 8 1938. Margaret had gone to High School for almost 6 years. When she finished, she went to Barnard College and then transfered to Columbia University. When she was in Columbia University, she became interested in anthropology. She received her Ph,D in 1928. SHe became the most famous anthropologist in the world. In 1925, she set to American Samoa, and in 1929 she went, accompanied by her second husband, Reo Fortune, to Manus Island in New Guinea, where she studied the play and imaginations of younger children and the way they were shaped by adult society. As an anthropologist, Margaret had been trained to think in terms of the interconnection of all aspects of human life. The production of food cannot be separated from ritual and belief, and politics cannot be separated from childrearing or art. This holistic understanding of human adaptation allowed Margaret to speak out on a very wide range of issues. She affirmed the possibility of learning from other groups, above all by applying the knowledge she brought back from the field to issues of modern life. Margaret did not do any experiments, but she observed many things. If people didn't know Margaret, they wouldn't know what amazing things she did. Thank you for listening!! Margaret had set out to American Samoa with her second husband, Reo Fortune, to do some field work. She had gone to New Guinea
