Pierre Jules Cesar

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Pierre Jules César Janssen was born in Paris, France back in 1824 to Antoine and Pauline.  He studied mathematics and physics, at the University of Paris.  After graduation, he taught at Lycée Charlemagne.  His interests were in astronomy, so he devoted most of his life to observation of solar eclipses.

He travelled to several locations to observe eclipses.  He was in Paris in 1870 during the Siege of Paris, he escaped in a balloon.  He died in Meudon, France in 1907, he was 83.

What you may not know about Pierre is that he was noted for inventing the Revolver of Janssen which was the precursor of the motion picture industry.  He is also noted for discovering helium.

Good morning, James... I recall reading this post yesterday and commenting on it. Did your original one disappear in yesterday's craziness?

I am glad I am not the only crazy one in the Rain, haha.  I remember reading this one yesterday as well.  I do like hearing about astronomy more than wars though.

Good morning James. Like Nina Hollander, have I not seen and commented on this one before? AR may be a bit wacky these days!

Good morning James Dray is this duplication of yesterday's post an accident or an intention?  After all you did shorten the name in today's headline

This appears to be a duplicate to yesterday, with a slight difference in the name in the title
