Excerpt

as geleiras, do mesmo modo se descobriu a origem das chuvas e a do nascimento dos rios.

Possuida esta simples e clara noção, o homem adquiriu o poder de intervir no meteoro. Em 14 de novembro de 1854 uma tempestade medonha caíu sobre as esquadras franceza e ingleza, estacionadas no Mar Negro. Todos os navios das duas marinhas tiveram avarias desastrosas. Muitas embarcações de transporte naufragaram. O sr. Leverrier, director do observatorio de Paris, procedeu então a um inquerito sobre as perturbações atmosphericas d'esse dia, dirigindo circulares a todos os meteorographos do mundo. Duzentas e cincoenta respostas de differentes observatorios provaram que a onda atmospherica qua determinara a tempestade fôra presentida pelos observadores, e que a catastrophe teria sido evitada se o telegrapho, que caminha mais depressa do que a corrente do ar, houvesse feito passar de observatorio em observatorio a noticia do phenomeno.

Author of the Day

Today, his Mark Cole books are extremely popular and Brannan a full-time writer (when he isn't teaching martial arts). As our Author of the Day, Brannan reveals how James Bond inspired his work, talks about his years in the Army and gives us a sneak peek in what he is working on right now.
