Inventions of the past that we've lost forever

Aren’t we accustomed with a sense of superiority to look at the achievements of scientists and thinkers of the past. All previous inventions in our eyes pale in comparison with the scientific breakthroughs of our time. But you will be surprised to know that there are a few amazing ancient discoveries, much ahead of his, and our time and irretrievably lost. If able today to reproduce at least one of them, the world can change completely.

  • Stradivarius

    Italian craftsman Antonio Stradivari, who lived in the 17th and 18th centuries, have left a significant trace in the history of manufacturing musical instruments. In our days there are about 500 violins, made by his hands. They are sold for tens of millions of dollars and are considered to be truly unique. Equipment and materials that Stradivarius used in the work, was passed down from father to son for eight generations, but Antonio was the last in the chain. After all his information was lost. One of the researchers was not able to unravel the secret of Stradivarius violins. One version says that the master used wood from the Ice age.

  • Archimedes the fire

    One of the greatest mathematicians in history, Archimedes of Syracuse was born in year 287 BC. He was able to use a system of mirrors so that the ships attacking Syracuse, was burned to the ground from the direct rays of the sun in a few seconds. This experiment has still not managed to play anyone – a ray of light always turns out not powerful enough to cause a fire.

  • Greek fire

    Sea battles in Ancient Byzantium was the Bane of Western European crusaders. The horror they brought the methods of the Greeks to set fire to the ships. No one could understand how they do it, because the ships are burning right on the water. The fact that the warriors had a unique gas mixture, which caused violent explosions. Besides, it was impossible to extinguish by any means, but sand, vinegar and urine. Scientists argue whether this compound is similar in composition to the powder. Anyway, her recipe was then a state secret, the secret has remained to this day.

  • Damascus steel

    Anyone who has watched or read “Game of thrones” may have heard of Valyrian steel. So, it is its prototype was the Damascus steel, which was stronger than any other known materials. According to legend, the swords made of it, could finely chop the weapons of the enemy and easily cut through the thin hair on the fly. Knowledge about how Damascus steel was produced, was lost in the early 18th century.

  • Flexible glass

    The technology of making glass was known since the third Millennium BC. To this period belong the oldest glass objects. One of the Roman legend says that there was this kind of material, such as flexible glass. It was mentioned by Pliny the Younger, Petronius, Dion Cassius. According to them, the Creator of the flexible glass was the alchemist, which so surprised everyone that he was taken to the Emperor Tiberius. The latter threw the bowl made of flexible glass on the floor, but that is not crashed, but only a little wrinkled. The master did not want to disclose the secret composition of the material. Then, Tiberius ordered his execution for fear that flexible glass will affect the value of gold and silver.

  • Panacea Mithridates

    The elixir of immortality or a cure-all – like terms from the video game. But history knows a real example, when such a composition was invented. He was positioned as the antidote to any poison, and was created by Mithridates IV, king of Parthia of the dynasty of the arsacids. The Governor suspected that his own mother is poisoning him small doses of poison. Panacea Mithridates was used and in later times up to the 18th century. Oliver Cromwell believed, for example, that it treats acne.

  • Roman cement

    You are never surprised by the almost perfect preservation of the Roman aqueducts, roads and temples? Even the local harbour, more than 2 thousand years of destroying the sea, is still intact. The material from which all this is done, Roman cement was made from volcanic ash. However the full recipe has not reached us. It is a pity, because the world’s largest unreinforced concrete dome is made from it. Today’s building materials are manufactured using high-tech, but you can’t even compare in strength with Roman cement.

  • Cold fusion

    Professor and journalist Eugene Mallow was known to the researcher the possibility of cold nuclear fusion – producing energy without radiation and heating the material, to which nobody managed. One of the books Mallow describes the details of the experiment in 1989, during which cold fusion is managed at the University of Utah. However, documentary evidence that sheds light on the reaction mechanism, could not be found – Mallow was killed in 2004, and the mystery died with him.

  • The Tesla’s death ray

    Tesla said that during the 40 years he worked on directed energy weapons. He claimed to have gone beyond the experiment and was able to use its deadly installation. However, the scientist for some reason did not want to publish the results. It was believed that such a “death ray” can shoot down aircraft and generally represents a completely new type of weapon. However the details of the invention are not preserved.

  • Heat-resistant plastic

    This plastic material is said to have been invented in the 70-ies of the 20th century hairdresser Maurice ward. He called it “starlight” and even showed the transfer of scientific inventions on the BBC. There were shown how the material was treated with normal chicken egg, then warmed with a blowtorch for several minutes. Then the egg broke and it was moist. In theory, the starlight could protect people from a nuclear explosion. However, ward was very protective of his invention, therefore, the composition of the material was never released. The inventor himself died in 2011.

Scientists from the Israeli University of Haifa came to the conclusion that the strict diet has a harmful effect on the human body. The most dangerous weight loss method is a mono-diet, i.e. a diet with the use of monotonous foods.

To confirm this fact an experiment was conducted among the volunteers in the amount of 30 people. Within two weeks, the subjects followed a strict diet ate the same foods. After all participants have been screened and passed the necessary tests in order to assess the state of their health. Were identified negative consequences such as depression, fatigue, exhaustion of the Central nervous system. This is not a complete list of the ailments which were discovered as a result of experience.

The Israeli doctors have noticed that using mono leads to the deterioration of the physical state of human health – drastically reduced metabolism, due to deficiency of nutrients the human brain is depleted, there is cardio degeneration.

According to nutritionists, any monotonous food, and even if in limited quantities, is the cause of many diseases. Including nervous disorders.

Psychologists, studying the human condition during the use of mono -, introduced a new concept of “Diet depression” is a depression of people during the diet.

Tatiana’s day is also called the day of the student.

On 25 January, the Church honors the Holy Martyress Tatiana Roman – early Christian Martyr that was tortured for their faith in Christ under the Emperor Alexander in the third century, writes Columnist

In 1755 the Empress Elizabeth set of 25 January, his Imperial signature to the decree on the basis of the first Moscow University. After 36 years, in 1791, in a small wing of the institution opened a student house Church of St. Tatiana.

The celebration of student’s Day is organized with the assistance of the Ministry of youth and sports of Ukraine, with the support of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Committee on science and education of Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and includes a number of educational, social and cultural-artistic activities for young people and with its participation.

Despite the fact that the history of the holiday has its roots in the distant past, traditions have been preserved to this day. Student monks staged wide celebrations over a hundred years ago, and in the twenty-first century prefer to celebrate their holiday noisy and fun. By the way, in this day even quarterly extremely sober students did not touch. And if and closer, then saluted and inquired: “do Not need a master student of help?”.

25 Jan baked bread loaf in the sun, inviting luminary to get back to people. These loaves are eaten with the whole family, so everyone got a “piece of the sun”.

In addition, the girls in the village early in the morning dressed up and went to the river where knocked out and washed the rugs. Traditionally, back carry rugs they were assisted by boys. Then the rugs were hung up on fences for all to see the beauty and cleanliness of rugs, and it is tried and about a girl.

Also in old times to this day, the girls were making small Metalock of rags and feathers. It was believed that if such a whisk to discreetly put in Babi Kut in the house desirable the guy, the guy is definitely going to marry her, and their life together be long and happy.

Mother knew these tricks were carefully chosen by the bride, which will be able to “hide” the whisk.

According to legends, a woman born on this day will be a good housewife: “Tatiana and loaf bakes, and rugs on the river beats, and the dance is.”

For this day there were signs of the weather.

If Tatiana’s day will be sun – birds will be back soon, spring will come early. If Tatiana was snowing, believed that the summer will be rainy, but warm snowstorm foretold drought and crop failure. But if the sky was clear and the air was frost — the peasants had a good harvest.
