https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermann_Oberth

Hermann Oberth entstammte einer Familie Siebenbürger Sachsen. Schon als Jugendlicher ein begeisterter Leser der futuristischen Romane von Jules Verne, die ihm sein Vater geschenkt hatte, begann sich Oberth bereits während seiner Gymnasialzeit mit raketen- und raumfahrttheoretischen Problemen zu befassen. So konnte er durch physikalisch-mathematische Überlegungen nachweisen, dass eine „Reise zum Mond“ mit einer wie bei Jules Verne verwendeten Kanone, durch welche die Mondreisenden zum Mond geschossen würden, nicht möglich sein kann, da die Reisenden den gewaltigen Anpressdruck beim Abschuss nicht überleben würden. Stattdessen kam Oberth bald zu dem Schluss, dass eine solche Reise nur mit einer Rakete zu realisieren wäre. (Eine Rakete wird in einem anderen Roman von Jules Verne beschrieben.)

Da sein Vater, Dr. Julius Oberth, Arzt war, wurde auch in Hermann Oberth schon früh das Interesse an medizinischen Problemen geweckt. In seinen Erinnerungen beschreibt Oberth, wie er als Gymnasiast im öffentlichen Bad von Schäßburg, wo er seit seinem zweiten Lebensjahr mit den Eltern lebte, Sprünge vom Sprungbrett unternahm, um dem Gefühl der Schwerelosigkeit nahezukommen.

Seine bekanntesten Werke wurden Die Rakete zu den Planetenräumen (1923) und Wege zur Raumschiffahrt (1929). Darin stellte er auch das von ihm erfundene Ionentriebwerk vor. In Die Rakete zu den Planetenräumen stellte er folgende Thesen auf:

  • Prämisse 1: Beim heutigen Stand der Wissenschaft und der Technik ist der Bau von Maschinen, die höher steigen können, als die Erdatmosphäre reicht, wahrscheinlich.
  • Prämisse 2: Bei weiterer Vervollkommnung können diese Maschinen derartige Geschwindigkeiten erreichen, dass sie nicht auf die Erdoberfläche zurückfallen müssen und sogar imstande sind, den Anziehungsbereich der Erde zu verlassen.
  • Prämisse 3: Derartige Maschinen können so gebaut werden, dass Menschen (wahrscheinlich ohne gesundheitlichen Nachteil) mit emporfahren können.
  • Prämisse 4: Unter gewissen wirtschaftlichen Bedingungen kann sich der Bau solcher Maschinen lohnen. Solche Bedingungen können in einigen Jahrzehnten eintreten.

Mit dem Start des Sputnik (1957) und dem Flug von Juri Gagarin (1961) ins Weltall wurden diese, am Anfang der 1920er Jahre noch vollkommen utopischen Gedanken, weniger als vier Jahrzehnte später in die Realität umgesetzt.

The Ultimate Guide to Circular Gallifreyan in All of Time and Space

translationmatrix:

image

                                         

                                           Introduction

Gallifreyan, is the language used by the Time Lords of Gallifrey. It is (allegedly) a fictional language used in the BBC TV show Doctor Who. 

There are three known forms of written Gallifreyan; Old High Gallifreyan, Modern Gallifreyan and Circular Gallifreyan. 

Old High Gallifreyan, the original ancient language of the Time Lords, was declared by the 11th Doctor to possess the power to “raise empires and destroy gods”. But by the Doctor’s era, it fell in disuse and was known only to very few. Modern Gallifreyan, an evolved form of Old High Gallifreyan was common at the time of the Doctor.  

By the end of the last great Time War, Gallifreyan could be written using a complex system of interlocking circles, hexagons and connecting lines. This form of Gallifreyan is known as Circular Gallifreyan. 

Circular Gallifreyan is a language closely linked to the TARDIS. The TARDIS contains a translation matrix, giving it the ability to adapt to every other language, at least for those of us who aren’t Time Lords. In Muggle terms, Circular Gallifreyan is more of a cipher or code than an actual language. It can be used to write any language that can be translated to the same script as English. Since 2005 this version of Gallifreyan is used very commonly on the Dr Who TV show. 

 

                         Guide to Circular Gallifreyan

 

Step 1) Learn the Basic Alphabet 

Getting familiar with the basic alphabet is incredibly helpful

imageimage

I recommend memorizing the individual alphabets because it makes the reading and writing process much faster, but if you don’t want to do that, then you can use the chart below for reference to the consonants.

image

In circular Gallifreyan, there is no version of ‘C’. When there is a ‘C’ in a word, you replace it with either ‘K’ or ‘CH’ depending on whichever sounds closer to it. 

Some people write a version of ‘C’ that looks like ’D’ but with 4 dots. But that version is rather confusing because that can have different interpretations, so I prefer to stick to the ‘K’ method. 

Step 2) Vowels in Relation to Consonants 

Vowels are generally attached to the consonants directly before them. In which case they will be placed “in relation to the consonants” as seen in the chart below.

image

Vowels can also be put separately if there is no consonant before them, or if that is more convenient. In such a case, they are placed as seen in the alphabet chart.  (see step 1)


Step 3) Reading and Writing Simple Individual Words

Circular Gallifreyan is written and read anti-clockwise starting from the central bottom part of the circle.

Things to Keep in Mind :-

1) When you are writing the words, make small markings for the lines and dots you need for the alphabets and join them later. This way you can visualize the whole word. The lines can be drawn in any direction, what is important about them is their number. 

2) When writing words with double letters, like Gallifrey that has 2 L’s, make a smaller circle within the bigger one. Similarly, 2 T’s and all the other alphabets can be doubled by making a smaller version of themselves within the original letter

Examples :-

imageimageimage



Step 4) Grouped Words

In Gallifreyan, words in a sentence are grouped together, making the individual word circles form a larger circle. This is done by putting the individual circles in an anti-clockwise pattern. 

When reading Gallifreyan sentences, start at the lowest part of the circle at the bottom of the main circle and read it anticlockwise. Then do the same for all the other circles in the main circle, going in an anticlockwise direction. 

Examples :-

imageimageimage

Eventually, with practice, you should be able to read and write extensive  passages in circular Gallifreyan

Examples :-

imageimage


(Examples above are - ‘Love the running’ and ‘bad wolf’)



Step 5) Punctuation 

In order to read and write large sentences in their proper grammatical context, the following system of punctuation is used in Circular Gallifreyan.

imageimage

The punctuation of a sentence can be done by placing the necessary punctuation next to the pertaining word circle or by placing it in the outer circle of the word.

imageimageimage




Step 6) Number System

 There are many systems for writing numbers in Gallifreyan. There is even an entire system of doing advanced mathematics! But, since the last time I saw my mathematics book I stabbed it with a knife, killing it like the horcrux it is, I’ll stick to the two most basic methods. 

imageimage


I personally prefer the second method, because it’s much easier to use for really large numbers, like if you’re writing the date (or star date). But, method 1 is the one that is seen used in Doctor Who. The second version is more like using roman numerals, to an extent. 

Step 7) (optional) Decoration

Circular Gallifreyan has a beautiful script, so it will look good whether you write it free hand or elaborately with a compass. If you do want to make it more decorative, then there are various things you can do:-

• Draw an extra outer circle 

• Indent the inner circle

• Join the lines of the different circles together

• Change the thickness of certain circles in bigger phrases

Step 8) Test Yourself

creepycollector:

I just saw this on Reddit today and I wanted to share it here.

When you’re a parent, you have to realize that the child you brought into this world is going to be their own person and you’ll have to start getting into things you may not understand and have ZERO interest in.

However, you damn well better act like you are.

I can still remember the feeling as a kid getting Pokemon Red and it being something I loved so much, so I wanted to share that with my mom. I wanted to show her my team, tell her about the gym leaders I took down, and she just took a glance at the Game Boy color and went “mmhhhmm”.

She gave zero shits when I beat Banjo-Kazooie, a game which was INCREDIBLY hard for grade school me and you can make me have war flashbacks if you so much as say “Rusty Bucket Bay”.

My town in Animal Crossing? Catching rare fish? Who cares?

I liked a cartoon series so much that I wrote little stories about it? “No, I don’t want to read it.”

This type of stuff matters to kids so damn much and she’ll never realize how much it hurt our relationship. It might not seem like a big deal she never sat down and watched me play something like Luigi’s Mansion, but that’s how kids try and bond with their parents.

After constantly being shot down they’ll eventually stop talking to you entirely.
