Product Description

The history of discovery and invention is so thrilling, millions of people take an interest. From scanning of the skies by astronomers to the awe-inspiring studies in genetics, our world becomes more precious to us as mysteries are revealed. In 365 Fascinating Facts from the World of Discovery, you will find hours of great reading as the great moments of discovery, both large and small, come to light: Enduring a three-month voyage to the New World in 1620, half the colony of pilgrims died during the harsh first winter. In 1677, Anton van Leeuwenhoek sent a letter to the Royal Society of London, describing his discoveries with the microscope; the paper was titled "Observations Concerning Little Animals." Swiss engineer Georges de Mestral took his hunting dog into the woods one October morning in 1948 and, noticing cockleburs in the dog's hair, Mestral studied the tiny hooks on the burrs and went on to invent... Velcro. On May 19, 1910, the earth passed through the tail of Halley's Comet, prompting dire warnings of mass death from poisoning. This compelled people to buy "comet pills."

    A great daily calendar with a large variety in topics and applications! You will need a separate Bible devotional book though as he does not give a passage of Scripture to look up each day. I gave one copy away as a gift and will get another for myself to keep.
