English reformation

Sometimes circumstances can change rapidly. In the 1520s, an English translation of the Bible by William Tyndale had been deemed heresy. But by the late 1530s, with King Henry VIII's cataclysmic split from the Catholic church, having an English translation of the Bible became not only desirable but mandatory. Its introduction helped usher in a fertile period of English literature, with such luminaries as John Milton, John Bunyan, William Blake, Alfred Tennyson, and eventually William Shakespeare, and also helped fuse the English identity with the Protestant faith:

3:01 FEATURES & OPINION Missing matter found in the cosmic web Not only is 95% of the Universe made up of baffling dark matter and energy, up to 40% of the remaining ordinary matter is missing. This elusive ‘baryonic’ matter is thought to be distributed through the Universe like a cosmic web. Now, observations of X-rays from a quasar, which shine through the web like a lighthouse through fog, seem to offer the first solid evidence of the mysterious matter. Astronomer Taotao Fang explores why the missing baryons have been so difficult to detect. Nature News & Views | 6 min read Refere... mais »
