    The birth of stars

    Like rain, a star is a condensed droplet inside a cloud of gas. However, when conditions in space are compared to those on Earth, it can almost be said that a star forms itself out of nothing: the air we breath contains 30 billion billion atoms per cubic centimetre, while an interstellar cloud contains barely a few tens. On the other hand it spreads out over hundreds of light years and contains enough matter to form several thousand suns. The interstellar cloud also has a different chemical composition from an atmospheric cloud: it has on average 16 hydrogen atoms to each helium atom and only a trace of the more complex atoms such as carbon, nitrogen and iron.

    The idea that people ought to have a say in government was not a new one. It had existed ever since the days of ancient Greece and Rome. Since that time, people in many parts of the world had struggled to share power with kings and queens. Now, in England, that struggle was once again taking place.

Egyptian Civilization :From the Old Kingdom to the Middle Kingdom

From the Old Kingdom to the Middle Kingdom
About 2900 B.C., a ruler of Upper Egypt, known as Narmer, or Menes, conquered the Nile Delta and Lower Egypt. By 2686 B.C., centralized rule had been firmly established, and great pyramids, which were tombs for the pharaohs, were being constructed. During this Pyramid Age, or Old Kingdom (2686-2181 B.C.), the essential forms of Egyptian civilization crystallized.
The Egyptians believed the pharaoh to be both a man and a god, the earthly embodiment of the deity Horus; he was an absolute ruler of the land and held his court at the city of Memphis. The Egyptians regarded the pharaoh as a benevolent protector, who controlled the floodwaters of the Nile, kept the irrigation works in order, maintained justice in the land, and expressed the will of heaven. They expected that when the pharaoh died and joined his fellow gods he would still help his living subjects.
In time, the nobles who served as district governors gained in status and wealth and gradually came to undermine the divine king’s authority. The nobles’ growing power and the enormous expenditure of Egypt’s human and material resources on building pyramids led to the decline of the Old Kingdom. From 2181 to 2040 B.C., called the First Intermediate Period, rival families competed for the throne, thus destroying the unity of the kingdom. The civil wars and the collapse of central authority required to maintain the irrigation system cast a pall over the land, as illustrated in this ancient Egyptian poem:
The wrongdoer is everywhere.. . .
Plunderers are everywhere....
Nile is in flood, yet none plough eth for him....
Laughter hath perished and is no longer made.
It is grief that walketh through the land, mingled with lamentations...
The storehouse is bare.
During what is called the Middle Kingdom (2040-1786 B.C.), strong kings reasserted pharaonic rule and reunited the state. The restoration of political stability reinvigorated cultural life and revived economic activity. Pharaohs extended Egyptian control south over the land of Nubia, which became a principal source of gold. A profitable trade was carried on with Palestine, Syria, and Crete.
About 1800 B.C., central authority again weakened. In the era known as the Second Intermediate Period (1786-1570 B.C.), the nobles regained some of their power, the Nubians broke away from Egyptian control, and the Hyksos (a mixture of Semites and Indo-Europeans) invaded Egypt. For centuries, desert and sea had effectively guarded Egypt from Toreign invasion, but the Hyksos invaders, using horse and chariot and body armor, ended Egyptian complacency. The Hyksos succeeded in dominating Egypt for about a hundred years. Resentful of foreign rule, the Egyptians became more militant and aggressive; they learned to use the Hyksos’ weapons and drove out the invaders in 1570 B.C. The period of empire building known as the New Kingdom (1570-1085 B.C.) then began.
The basic features of Egyptian civilization had been forged during the Old and Middle Kingdoms. The Egyptians looked to the past, believing that the ways of their ancestors were best. For almost three thousand years, Egyptian civilization sought to retain a harmony with the order of nature instituted at creation. Believing that the universe was changeless, the Egyptians did not value change or development—what we call progress—but venerated the institutions, traditions, and authority that embodied permanence.
