Explore their contributions to geometry, astronomy, and physics and take a close-up look at how they applied their knowledge. Thales predicted an eclipse, Pythagoras discovered mathematical correlation between a musical instrument's string length and its tone, Archimedes developed laws of mechanics, and a group of ninety priests made well-informed, educated guesses about a variety of puzzling problems.
