Gli uomini nella palla di cannone lunare di Giulio Verne dovevano subire un'accelerazione enorme perché la palla non può accelerare più dal momento che ha sortito dal canone, cioè deve aver ottenuto la sua velocità massima quasi instantaneamente. La forza G sarebbe astronomica.

Invece gli astronauti al punto di un razzo hanno qualche minuti per ottenere la sua velocità massima, e dunque l'accelerazione può limitarsi a ciò che può sopportare il corpo umano.


Adesso lo capisco meglio. Non avevo visto nel libro delle persone nella palla, perché per me "un boulet" è una cosa bastante piccola. Ma alla fine del libro questo diventa più chiaro, perché si trova un dissegno del projectilo qui. Grazie per spiegare il ruolo della forza G.

Ici il assume qu'il y a des caves énormes sous la terre, ce qui pourrait théoriquement être vrai - mais que ces caves s'étendent de l'Islande jusqu'à l'Italie, c'est fou, et je ne vois même pas pourquoi il a gâté la fin de son livre avec de tels sottise, - c'est également une sottise de soutenir qu'un groupe de personnes puisse survivre à l'intérieur d'une éruption volcanique. Mais le plus idiot de loin, c'est de prétendre qu'une population de dinosaures eussent survécu des millions d'années sous la terre.


FR: Non, ça ne me donne pas d'inspiration de lire sur des dinosaures survécus au dessous de la terre, çela me parraît vraiment ridicule. :-(

It seems that I now again can access my multiconfused log. For a time I had the problem that I couldn't get past the first dialog box because the language list broke down after the first 16 languages, so I had to start a new thread for the purpose. I felt like someone whose home has been flooded so they have to move into a hotel room until things have been fixed. But now I'm back, thanks to our Administrator, and you can expect that this monster thread will continue its unbridled growth.

So goodbye to "Iversen's interim log post dump"

Interessante questo thread .....è in linea con il titolo , infatti non si capisce l'argomento , è un thread senza nè capo nè coda , non si capisce un emerito cactus (eufemismo che sostituisce una parola quasi assonante ma qui le parolacce sono vietate)

Αργά αυτó το βράδυ, όταν είχα σχεδόν αποφασίσει να πάει για ύπνο, είδα μια σύνδεση με http://www.kypros.org στο νήμα του JW. Και τώρα έχω περάσει δύο ώρες εξετάζοντας σελίδες ελληνικές. Στην www.kypros.www υπάρχει μια σειρά μαθημάτων με πολλά μαθήματα, αλλά απαιτεί εγγραφή για να το δείτε και εγώ Δεν θέλω να εφαρμόσει μια σειρά μαθημάτων - έχω άλλες μεθόδους. Αλλά υπάρχει ένα φόρουμ με μερικές ενδιαφέρουσες ερωτήσεις, και πέρασα πολύ χρόνο.

Από εκεί συνέχισαν σε μια σελίδα με την αρχαία ελληνική και αγγλική γλώσσα (http://www.ellopos.net/elpenor/greek-texts/greek-word.asp), όπου σπούδασα την Θεογονία του Ησίοδος. Σε αυτή την σελίδα υπάρχουν κείμενα από όλη την ιστορία της ελληνικής γλώσσας. Τώρα είμαι λίγο πιο κοντά στην κατανόηση ενός αρχαίο ελληνικό κείμενο, αλλά θα εξακολουθούν να σπουδάζουν μόνο την δημοτική γλώσσα - υπάρχουν πάρα πολλές τόνους και δασυφωνίες στην αρχαία ελληνική!

I had really decided to go to bed when I noticed the link to http://www.kypros.org in JW's log. I have visited this site before; I know there is a course with lots of lessons, but you have to have a (free) membership to see them, and I'm not interested enough to get inscribed. However this time I spent almost two hours reading stuff in the forum, and I concluded my Greek session with some pages from the beginning of Hesiod's Theogony, as seen in the bilingual version at the site http://www.ellopos.net/elpenor/greek-texts/greek-word.asp. Ancient Greek doesn't seem as incomprehensible to me now as it did just a few months ago, but I still don't understand why there are so many accents and aspiration signs and other diacritical signs. I have read somewhere that the old Greeks didn't write these signs.

Ancient Greek was a tonal language, and while Ancient Greeks did not use accents or
breathing marks in their writing, these were introduced during the Byzantine period to
aid readers unfamiliar with the polytonal system (the lowercase letters were also
introduced around that time).

Greek pronunciation changed over time, and gradually tones were replaced by stress (as in
Modern Greek). Interestingly, Modern Greek was written with polytonic diactrics until
1982, although by that time these only had orthographic significance.

If you're interested in hearing how Ancient Greek must have sounded, some audio samples
of "reconstructed pronunciation" can be found on the internet. The sound is quite unlike
that of Modern Greek! :)

This is a good reason indeed. Let me rephrase: the classical Greeks had a tonal system, but because everyone knew the tones no one bothered to mark them. When that system started to break down during the byzantine period it became necessary to mark the tones to try to preserve the old system, which nonetheless broke down beyond repair in the spoken language, leaving some useless marks in the writing. And it took more than one thousand years before an unpopular junta made katherevousa and the useless accents so unpopular that it became politically possible to remove them.

I first bought some books about Greek around 1980 with the intention of learning the language (some small dictionaries, one Teach Yourself plus a Swedish language textbook by a certain Mistakidis). But then I left language learning for a few years (25) and the books where never used, except for learning the alphabet. But all these books use the old three accents plus the two aspirations, and therefore I still have some idea about where to use the different signs - such as the one that precisely those Greek words that as loan words in other languages are written with an intital h-(heureka, Hera). But I think that the simplification of the writing was a great step forward, because it must be better to have a writing that is somewhat in line with the spoken language, rather than catering to a few purists' vain attempts to teach people classical Greek through the spelling system.
