      Recognizing that fundamental knowledge of the land is essential for an effective government and a productive economy, the 45th Congress and President Hayes established the U.S. Geological Survey years ago, on March 3, The new organization was to be responsible for the scientific “classification of the public lands and examination of the Geological Structure, mineral. The brilliant geologist Grove Karl Gilbert got his first western field experience with the expedition before joining the Powell survey two years later. During his first years in the field, Wheeler gradually refined his techniques and procedures.

      The Great Scientists is a lavishly-illustrated collection of essays, each devoted to one of history's greatest scientists. From the Greek mathematicians Euclid and Archimedes, whose work is even now required reading, to the theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, the greatest practitioners from a wide range of scientific disciplines are represented here.4/5. "Beyond the Hundredth Meridian" is an excellent biography of Major John Wesley Powell. I, like probably almost everyone with a bit of history in their veins, knows of Powell as the first documented leader of a party to successfully run the rapids of the Green and Colorado Rivers/5.

    The scientist followed his own advice. Gilbert's book recounted his investigations in so much detail that another person could replicate his work and verify his results. This research led to many important discoveries about magnetism. The learned fellow also turned his inquisitive mind to the heavens. Gilbert directly influenced Galileo.   When William Beebe needed to know what was going on in the depths of the ocean, he had himself lowered a half-mile down in a four-foot steel sphere to see-five times deeper than anyone had ever gone in the s. When he wanted to trace the evolution of pheasants in , he trekked on foot through the mountains and jungles of the Far East to locate every species.
