Making history matter: David Gaimster, General Secretary of the Society of Antiquaries of London, introduces a new exhibition he has curated at the Royal Academy focusing on the tercentenary of the Society of Antiquaries, and explains how the Society shaped ideas of British history over that time Ivan Rostislavovich Sokolovskii, Sluzhilye "inozemtsy" v Sibiri XVII veka (Tomsk, Eniseisk, Krasnoiarsk) ["Foreign" Servicemen in 17th-Century Siberia (Tomsk, Eniseisk, Krasnoiarsk)].

The astronomical objects have fascinated human race and captured the imagination of most brilliant minds on earth for thousands of years.
Also, the apparent magnitude of a celestial body may differ depending on the range of the electromagnetic spectrum in which it is being observed.
The apparent magnitude of the same object observed in the infrared band is different from the amount observed in visible light.
The relative dating is the technique in the Geology through which the age is determined with relation to the other objects.
However, the concept is mainly used for observations in the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Absolute magnitude is defined as the apparent magnitude of a star at the distance of 10 parsecs or 32.6 light years.
