The Cyrus Cilinder

El Cilindro de Ciro

El Cilindro de Ciro es una pieza cilíndrica de arcilla que contiene una declaración en cuneiforme acadio babilonio del rey persa Ciro el Grande (559-529 a. C.), considerada como la primera declaración de los DERECHOS HUMANOS.

En ella, el nuevo rey legitima su conquista y toma medidas políticas para ganarse el favor de sus nuevos súbditos.

Fue descubierto en 1878 por el arqueólogo asirio-británico Hormuz Rassam en 1878 durante la excavación del templo de Marduk en Babilonia. Consiste en dos fragmentos, llamados "A" y "B".

El primero permaneció en el Museo Británico desde su descubrimiento, mientras que el segundo fue alojado en la Universidad de Yale hasta su traslado al Museo Británico, donde se encuentra actualmente.

''When my soldiers in great numbers peacefully entered Babylon... I did not allow anyone to terrorize the people... I kept in view the needs of people and all its sanctuaries to promotetheir well-being... Freed all the slavesI put an end to their misfortune and slavery (referred to 42,000 Jews and other religious minorities). ''

Unusual historical photos

The first photo of the Earth

Explanation: Pictured above is the first image ever taken of the Earth from the Moon. The image was taken in 1966 by Lunar Orbiter 1 and heralded by then-journalists as the Image of the Century.
.
It was taken about two years before the Apollo 8 crew snapped its more famous color cousin. Recently, modern technology has allowed the recovery of higher resolution images from old data sources such as Lunar Orbiter tapes than ever before.
.
Specifically, recovery of the above image was initiated 20 years ago by Nancy Evans, and completed recently by Dennis Wingo and Keith Cowing who lead the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project.

Images like that above carry more than aesthetic value -- comparison to recent high definition images of the Moon enables investigations into how the Moon has been changing.
