John Couch Adams (1819-1892) was an English astronomer and mathematician who, at 24 years old, predicted the existence of the planet Neptune (Le Verrier also predicted its existence, independently). AIRY, GEORGE Sir George Bidell Airy (1801-1892) was the director of Greenwich Observatory/Astronomer Royal of England from 1835 to 1881. Airy installed a transit (a precise surveying device) at Greenwich, England, which was used to define the zero degree meridian of the Earth (zero-degrees longitude). A crater on Mars about 5 degrees south of the equator and on what is defined as Mars' prime meridian (zero-degrees longitude) is call Airy. A small crater within this crater (which is called Airy-0) is where the meridian line (zero-degrees longitude) crosses. A crater on the moon is also named for him (latitude 18.1 degrees, longitude 354.3 degrees, diameter 36 km). Airy is supposed to have stated incorrectly that Charles Babbage's new "analytical engine" (the predecessor of the computer) was "worthless," effectively ending Babbage's government funding.

Airy, Sir George Biddell Airy, Sir George Biddell, , English astronomer. The son of a poor farmer, he distinguished himself as Senior Wrangler at Cambridge, where he was elected fellow of Trinity College (1824) and appointed professor (1826). As Astronomer Royal and director of the Royal Greenwich Observatory from 1835 to 1881, he organized the efficient and accurate observation of stellar positions. Airy wrote many governmental reports on astronomical and other subjects, published works on celestial mechanics, and made discoveries in theoretical and practical optics, including the cylindrical lens for correcting astigmatism, an eye defect he himself possessed. See his autobiography (1896).

G B Airy's Country Retreat
© Kenneth J Goward
My main pleasure in the wonderful science of astronomy comes from the occasional study of its rich and colourful history. That pleasure was compounded in summer 1999 when Mr Ed O'Sullivan visited our observatory to progress his enquiries into a former owner of his cottage, Airy's , Church Lane, Playford. The former owner in question was no less a person than Sir George Biddell Airy, 7 th Astronomer Royal! Ed's visit passed all too quickly discussing Airy, his many scientific achievements, his links to this corner of East Anglia and Orwell Park. Ed has no links with astronomy and didn't purchase the cottage because of its astronomical history. All he knew when he bought the property in 1997 was what the estate agent said: Some famous scientist was supposed to have lived there
Following that fascinating meeting I sent off a package of information about Airy to Ed and was delighted to receive in return an invitation to visit the cottage. In November 1999, I was privileged to make the visit and was treated to a most interesting tour of the cottage, which still has much of Airy's influence pervading, and the adjacent St Mary's Church where the Airy family is buried and where one may see many mementos of the locally prominent Biddell family.
The visit afforded me the chance to photograph the cottage inside and out for the information of Dr Allan Chapman who visited Orwell Park in May 2001 to deliver a lecture on Airy. Anyone who has ever been privileged to hear Allan lecture will know what a treat the lecture was. Allan has for some time been researching Airy with the intention of writing his biography and has full access to both the Greenwich archive and the Airy family papers. Indeed, Allan has told me that the family papers alone take up in excess of 30 feet of shelf space - such was the prodigious output from the 7

By Ken Goward, for the Committee of OASI Following a unanimous vote at our 2002 AGM and the acceptance of subsequent formal invitations, it is with considerable pleasure that we are able to announce the appointment of an honourary President and three new honourary members viz Hon President: Dr Allan Chapman, MA, D.Phil, FRAS Allan Chapman is a professional historian of science at the Faculty of Modern History, Oxford and is a member of Wadham College. He obtained his BA (first class) at Lancaster University and a D.Phil in the History of Science at Oxford in 1972. His MA came at Oxford in 1983. Allan has written a number of authoritative books on the history of astronomy, including Dividing the Circle Astronomical Instruments and Their Users (1996) and The Victorian Amateur Astronomer (1998). He has also written many articles and papers for international academic journals and is popularly known for his regular articles in Astronomy Now Allan gave the Wilkins Prize Lecture in the history of science at the Royal Society in 1994, speaking on Edmond Halley. He became the Medal Lecturer at the Royal Institution in 1997. His fame goes before him on the astronomy society lecture circuit and (although he wouldn't admit it) he is very much the 'star turn' at Astrofest each year. He has also made a number of TV appearances on Open University Programmes and

"arising out of his professorial lectures, among which may be specially mentioned his paper " On the Diffraction of an Object-Glass with Circular Aperture." In 1831 the Copley medal of the Royal Society was awarded to bin) for these researches. Of his astronomical writings during this period the most important are his investigation of the mass of Jupiter, his report to the British Association on the progress of astronomy during the rgth century, and his memon1 On an Inequality of Long Period in the Motions of the Earth and Venus. One of the sections of his able and instructive report was devoted to " A Comparison of the Progress of Astronomy in England with that in other Countries," very much to the .disadvantage of England. This reproach was subsequently to a great extent removed by his own labours. The formidable undertaking of reducing the accumulated planetary observations made at Greenwich from 1750 to 1830 was already in progress under Airy's supervision when he became Astronomer Royal. Shortly afterwards he undertook the further laborious task of reducing the enormous mass of observations of the moon made at Greenwich during the same period under the direction, successively, of J. Bradley, N. Bliss, N. Maskelyne and John Pond, to defray the expense of which a large sum of money was allotted by the Treasury. As the result, no less than 8000 lunar observations were rescued from oblivion, and were, in 1846, placed at the disposal of astronomers in such a form that

he put in Mt. airy did “come up here and make some good arrests”as did george himself on one occasion. He also recalls that
George C. Draper has been one of the leaders of the Upper Wissahickon Civic Association (UWCA) since it was founded in the early 1990s. UWCA is an association devoted to improving life in the Wissahickon Avenue / Allens Lane area. A primary goal of the group is, according to George, “to preserve the beauty of the area.” It also honors young people in the area who graduate from or do particularly well in school. It works to reduce crime in the area. And it keeps an eye on local and state government for the members of the association. As George jokingly puts it, “We are busybodies.” George has served as recording secretary of UWCA for two years and chairperson of UWCA’s fund raising project for the last four years. He is a liaison person for UWCA with other community organizations. And, given his experience as a retired sergeant of the Philadelphia Police Department, he helps his neighbors who have concerns about safety and security in the neighborhood. In addition to his work with UWCA, George served on the steering committee of Wissahickon Avenue Neighbors, a group formed to oppose the widening of Wissahickon Avenue. George says “The state wanted to cut down trees and widen the road. We convinced them to see things our way.” The road was basically unchanged but the state “improved some areas where there had been frequent accidents.” George has lived in Mt. Airy for 25 years. He says it “is the best move I ever made.” As a member of the Police Department he was not regularly assigned to Mt. Airy. But when he was in charge of the anti-crime unit he would “put two or three teams up in Mt Airy” even though Mt. Airy is “not the best place to look for criminals.” But the teams he put in Mt. Airy did “come up here and make some good arrests” as did George himself on one occasion. He also recalls that when he was the sergeant in the 35th district, the sergeant in the 14th district was sometimes out. So, for two or three weeks, “I had the 14th district as well.”

Seventh Astronomer Royal from (1835-1881)
George Biddell Airy in 1852, the year after the Airy Transit Circle came into use. After graduating from Trinity College, Cambridge in 1823 Airy worked as an assistant tutor in mathematics. In 1826 he became Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge, his interest in astronomy developed in this period as is reflect in his book, Mathematical Tracts on Physical Astronomy published the same year. He was elected Professor of Astronomy and Director of the Cambridge Observatory in 1828. In 1835 he became Astronomer Royal. The Observatory expanded under Airy. Although he saw the proper role of the Observatory as providing data that could be used for the Navy and Empire (rather than as a research institution) he appeared to stretch this role to its limits. He replaced and added apparatus including the altazimuth telescope in 1847 and the Airy Transit Circle (thus providing the Observatory with its 4th meridian line - it is this line on which GMT is based). He introduced specialist staff to the Observatory and he introduced new departments, including a department for magnetic and meteorological data in 1838. He also introduced photographic registration in 1848, an electric device to time transits in 1854, spectroscopic observations in 1868 and daily observations of sunspots using the Kew heliograph in 1873. Outside of his Observatory work he supervised an experiment at Harton Colliery, South Shields to measure the change in the force of gravity with distance below the Earth's surface. Like many astronomers of the time, Airy went on a number of eclipse expeditions including Turin in 1842, Sweden in 1851 and Spain in 1860.
