Engraving of a nautilus and an ammonite

Engraving of a nautilus and an ammonite. The nautilus is one of the species of marine cephalopods of the family Nautilidae. There are two genera (Allonautilus and Nautilus), with a total of six species. They grow with a shell that gets larger as they grow. The spiral shell is divided into chambers. Here this is compared with the cross section of an ammonite fossil (top left) found at Whitby, Yorkshire. This engraving was first published in the Gentleman's Magazine in 1752

Thomas Wright, British astronomer

Thomas Wright (1711-86), British astronomer. Wright was born at Byers Green in northern England. In 1730 he set up a school at which he taught mathematics and navigation. He taught himself the essentials of architecture and garden design and was employed by wealthy patrons. This supported his work in astronomy. He is best known for his suggestion that the Milky Way is actually a disc-shaped layer of stars in which we live. He also suggested that some of the faint nebulae that could be observed were other galaxies at incredible distances. This engraved portrait first appeared in the Gentleman's Magazine in 1793
