1. History Of Science - Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia
As an academic field, history of science began with the publication of William Whewell s History of the Inductive Sciences (first published in 1837).
History of science
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Science is a body of empirical theoretical , and practical knowledge about the natural world , produced by a global community of researchers making use of scientific methods , which emphasize the observation, experimentation and explanation of real world phenomena . Given the dual status of science as objective knowledge and as a human construct, good historiography of science draws on the historical methods of both intellectual history and social history Tracing the exact origins of modern science is difficult. This is due in large part to the scant documentary and physical evidence of ancient investigations of nature. Even the word scientist is relatively recent first coined by William Whewell in the 19th century . Previously, people investigating nature called themselves natural philosophers While empirical investigations of the natural world have been described since antiquity (for example, by Aristotle ), and scientific methods have been employed since the Middle Ages (for example, by

History of Science Society
In the 1860s the invention of the spectroscope allowed scientists to study the chemical composition of the sun. Late in the nineteenth century, spectroscopes were turned to the study of water in the atmosphere and the possibilities of forecasting rain. This represents, writes Ben Smith, "the earliest attempt to apply spectroscopy to atmospheric remote sensing and meteorology."
