Napoleon Bonaparte, 1840.Artist: Goutiere

Napoleon Bonaparte, 1840. Portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) made in the year of the Battle of Waterloo (1815). Napoleon enjoyed a meteoric rise through the ranks of the French Revolutionary army. In 1799 he led a coup to overthrow the government, the Directory, and became first consul and effective dictator of France. In 1804, he declared himself Emperor, and embarked on a series of military campaigns across Europe, the Napoleonic Wars. Victories such as Austerlitz and Jena led to France establishing its power across much of the continent. In 1812, however, Napoleon embarked on a disastrous invasion of Russia and defeat at Leipzig in 1813 led to his abdication and exile to Elba. He ecaped in 1815, raised another army, but was finally defeated by Wellington at Waterloo, and exiled again to St Helena

Precession of the North Celestial Pole Featured 2 Mar 2006 Print

Precession of the North Celestial Pole

Precession of the North Celestial Pole. Artwork of the constellations of the North Celestial Pole and the slow circular movement (red) of this Pole over a period of thousands of years. This movement is known as precession. Precession is the term for the way a rotating object (such as the Earth) wobbles in a precise and calculable manner. The current pole star is Polaris (centre right). Some 3000 years ago in around 2000 BC, the pole star was Draconis (lower centre). The time for one complete precession is shown as 23, 667 years. The actual time is now thought to be closer to 25, 700 years. The artworks of the constellations represent their mythical names. This artwork, which is based on the diagram in The Story of the Heavens (Robert Ball, 1886), was published in Pioneers of Science (Oliver Lodge, 1893)
