SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

James Stirling (mathematician)

James Stirling was a Scottish mathematician. He was nicknamed "The Venetian"; the Stirling numbers, Stirling permutations, Stirling's approximation are named after him. He proved the correctness of Isaac Newton's classification of cubics. Stirling was born on 11 May 1692 at Garden House near Stirling, the third son of Archibald Stirling, Lord Garden. At 18 years of age he went to Balliol College, where, chiefly through the influence of the Earl of Mar, he was nominated in 1711 to be one of Bishop Warner's exhibitioners at Balliol. In 1715 he was expelled on account of his correspondence with his cousins, who were members of the Keir and Garden families, who were noted Jacobites, had been accessory to the "Gathering of the Brig o' Turk" in 1708. From Oxford he made his way to Venice. In 1717 appeared his Lineae tertii ordinis Newtonianae, sive.... While in Venice he communicated, through Isaac Newton, to the Royal Society a paper entitled "Methodus differentialis Newtoniana illustrata". Fearing assassination on account of having discovered a trade secret of the glassmakers of Venice, he returned with Newton's help to London about the year 1725.

In London he remained for ten years, being most part of the time connected with an academy in Tower Street, devoting his leisure to mathematics and correspondence with eminent mathematicians. In 1730 his most important work was published, the Methodus differentialis, sive tractatus de summatione et interpolatione serierum infinitarum, something more than an expansion of the paper of 1718. In 1735, he communicated to the Royal Society a paper "On the Figure of the Earth, on the Variation of the Force of Gravity at its Surface." In the same year he was appointed manager for the Scots Mining Company at Leadhills, where the Scots Mining Company House was built for him in 1736. His next paper to the Royal Society was concerned, not with applied sciences, his name is connected with another practical undertaking, since grown to vast dimensions. The accounts of the city of Glasgow for 1752 show that the first instalment of ten millions sterling spent in making Glasgow a seaport, viz. a sum of £28, 4s.

4d. was for a silver tea-kettle to be presented to "James Stirling, for his service and trouble in surveying the river towards deepening it by locks." Another edition of the Lineae tertii ordinis was published in Paris in 1797. A considerable collection of literary remains, consisting of papers and two manuscript volumes of a treatise on weights and measures, are still preserved at Garden; this article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain: Chisholm, Hugh, ed..

Luna E-8 No.201

Luna E-8 No.201 known as Luna Ye-8 No.201, sometimes identified by NASA as Luna 1969A, was a Soviet spacecraft, lost in a launch failure in 1969. It was a 5,590 kilograms Luna E-8 spacecraft, the first of three to be launched, It was intended to perform a soft landing on the Moon, in order to deploy a Lunokhod rover onto the surface, it carried the Lunokhod No.201 rover. Luna E-8 No.201 was launched at 06:48:15 UTC on 19 February 1969 atop a Proton-K 8K78K carrier rocket with a Blok D upper stage, flying from Baikonur Cosmodrome Site 81/24. The payload shroud collapsed at T+51 seconds as the booster was passing through the point of maximum aerodynamic pressure and debris struck the Proton's external N2O2 tanks at high speed, puncturing them and allowing oxidizer to spill out and ignite on contact with the engine exhaust, resulting in the explosion of the first stage; the upper stages were blasted free and impacted the ground. It was determined that the failure was due to a design flaw in the untested new payload shroud developed for the launch.

The Russian documentary Project E-8 includes a film clip of the ill-fated launch. Prior to the release of information about its mission, NASA identified that it had been an attempt to deploy a rover onto the lunar surface
