Alchemical symbols were first used by Greek, Syrian and Egyptian writers about the fifth or sixth century AD. The abbreviation of words in the form of signs and symbols saved them from constant repetition. Signs and symbols were adopted and developed by medieval Arabic and European writers, alchemists, astrologers, apothecaries and natural philosophers. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries tables of parallel systems were frequently published. With the advance of modern chemistry and physics their use became largely obsolete.

First space walk. Computer illustration of the Soviet cosmonaut Alexei Leonov (1934-2019), outside the Voskhod 2 spacecraft in a spacesuit on 18th March 1965, while orbiting the Earth. This was the world's first extravehicular activity (EVA), or space walk. Voskhod 2 had launched earlier that day, and Leonov exited the spacecraft at 08:30 UTC. He remained outside for 10 minutes, before trying to re-enter. Because his suit had ballooned while outside, he had to let some of his air out before he could successfully re-enter the spacecraft.

Cagnetta Laika the space dog. Laika was the first animal in space. She was launched aboard the Soviet Sputnik 2 spacecraft on 3 November 1957. Laika (meaning 'Husky' or 'Barker') was contained within a sealed cabin with a food store and an air conditioner. Soviet propaganda at the time maintained that she survived for about a week, but in fact she died after just a few hours due to overheating and panic. The spacecraft was not designed to be recovered and it burnt up as it re-entered the atmosphere on 14 April 1958, 162 days after its launch.

Luna 9 landing capsule on the Moon, composite image. The Luna 9 spacecraft made the first ever soft landing on the Moon on 3rd February 1966. It sent back numerous photographs of the lunar surface and allowed measurements to be made of several properties of the surface, such as crater structure and surface cohesiveness. The landing capsule (seen here) was ejected when the front of the spacecraft touched the lunar surface. It landed and rolled upright before unfolding supports. Luna 9 was the third Soviet attempt to make a soft landing on the Moon.
