The Early Mapping of Hawai'I

By: Gary L. Fitzpatrick

The cartographic history of Hawaii began with the arrival of Captain James Cook, the famous explorer and chartmaker, in 1778. Between then and the mid-19th century, visitors to HawaiI produced a rich assortment of charts and maps depicting the shores, harbors, towns, and volcanoes of the various islands.

Das Zeitalter der Automaten : Über Darwin hinaus

By: Alois Rutz

So gesehen, könnten sie mit der Zeit die Menschen auf der Erde ersetzen. Alles, was der Mensch bisher an Wissen entwickelt hat, könnte dann in den Automaten weit besser aufbewahrt und weiterentwickelt w...
