What's GEOMETRY? a talk among- An experimental PHYSICIST. A natural MATHEMATICIAN. A RELATIVIST who advocates the more moderen conceptions of time and house in physice. Rel. there's a recognized proposition of Euclid which states that "Any aspects of a triangle are jointly more than the 3rd side." Can both of you inform me even if these days there's reliable cause to think that this proposition is correct? Math. in my opinion, i'm rather not able to assert no matter if the proposition is correct or no longer. i will deduce it by way of reliable reasoning from sure different propositions or axioms, that are purported to be nonetheless extra user-friendly. If those axioms are real, the proposition is correct; if the axioms will not be real, the proposition isn't real universally. even if the axioms are real or no longer i can't say, and it truly is outdoor my province to think about. Phys. yet is it no longer claimed that the reality or those axioms is self-evident? Math. they're not at all self-evirlent to

How should still local towns advance local improvement thoughts for his or her sustainable destiny? How can such suggestions paintings successfully? nearby towns are actually at a crossroads: will they do not want or be regenerated less than the affects of globalization? Their sustainable regeneration as artistic local facilities will play a decisive function of their sustainable improvement as an entire, yet purely with practicable local spatial recommendations that increase the community of towns and their hinterlands.

Astronomers are not so unreasonable as to demand that all useful space activity cease for the sake of a pure, ``useless'' science: The IAU simply appeals to the governments of the world that such activities be regulated by international agreements, taking into account the needs of all humankind, including those of international science. An excellent precedent is set by the international treaty concerning the Antarctic continent - which is only apparently closer and more vulnerable than space. 4.
Instruments in the range of 40-cm to 1-m are ideal for teaching and useful for research. People who have begun to produce results with such Astronomy Around the World 29 instruments may later graduate to telescopes of aperture 2m or larger. A hurdle here, however, is that the writing of a successful application for time on a large telescope is itself something that needs practice. New observers would do well to ally themselves with some established team. There is a need for a clearing-house to match would-be observers with teams willing to lend a helping hand.
Such a drain probably cannot be entirely prevented, but in most developed countries now, there is so much difficulty finding jobs for qualified nationals that visitors are much less likely to be offered positions than they were a few decades ago. Narlikar's proposal (Narlikar, 2001) for electronic networking would overcome many of the problems of isolation without creating any risk of a brain drain, but this, too, requires funding. On balance, the more programmes there are for exchanging astronomers, the better it will be for those countries wishing to develop their astronomy.
