Weekend Reading

A little of this, A little of that

Archemedes Screwed?

I caught this show on Nova this week. Fascinating. Seems that Greek Mathematician Archemedes had developed a form of calculus almost 1,200 years before Newton and Leibniz. Unfortunately the only copy of his treatise was earased in the middle ages so that the parchement could be reused for a prayer book. Perhaps if it had survied we'd now be advanced enough so that I could be driving my long desired Jeston's hover car?
