The Greeks had two words for ‘star’, astēr and astron. They go back to an ancient root that is also the source of the Latin word stella, which gave us itself and also stellar (mid 17th century). An asterisk is a little star, the meaning of its source, Greek asteriskos. Asteriskos is from astēr, which is also the root of asteroeidēs, ‘star-like’. This entered English in the early 19th century as asteroid (early 19th century), a term coined by the astronomer William Herschel. astēr also gave us our name for the plant aster (early 18th century), which has petals rather like an asterisk. Words beginning with astro- come from astron. In the Middle Ages astronomy (Middle English) covered not only astronomy but astrology too. The Greek word it descends from meant ‘star-arranging’. Rather poetically, an astronaut [1920s] is literally a ‘star sailor’. The word comes from Greek astron ‘star’ and nautēs ‘sailor’. It was modelled on aeronaut (late 18th century), a word for a traveller in a hot-air balloon or airship. Cosmonaut [1950s], the Russian equivalent of astronaut, literally means ‘sailor in the cosmos’.what determines development who devised the fundamental constitutions of carolina who design nazi uniforms how development affects environment which science is the most important how many london premier league teams where to find solutions which business degree is right for me why startups succeed whom definition which solutions conduct electricity when entrepreneur scheme was introduced by sbi where is data from system in stored what project is lil wayne from how many technology do we have where's the london stadium what teaching jobs pay the most why project based learning is important which solutions are isotonic how often teachers get paid whose methodology of teaching experimentation is the key note of where do entrepreneurs work how london became londongrad how much system storage mac when entrepreneurial activities slow down who product registration why science of reading how much solution in little green machine where to solve math equations where technology came from how many development cards in catan what start up business is successful who developed the geocentric theory who teach you why design matters book whose science whose knowledge pdf how much solution in vax platinum where to teach english without a degree which science is the easiest when device is offline which business credit card is best how london became londongrad how much development is important for a country who developed the geocentric theory how to solve solution
