Nisi si andërr me 1888 – kjo asht historia e e revistës National Geographic!

Thonë se neotenia ose ndryshe kurioziteti, e ka çue kaq përpara njerëzimin.

Për me zbulue të msheftat e botës, nji natë dimni u mblodhën 33 burra në Cosmos Club.

Gjeologë, gjeografë, bankierë, ushtarakë, inxhinierë, mësues, avokatë, pak a shumë e gjithë elita e Washingtonit.

Krejt andërronin me zbulue sa ma shumë gjana për botën.

Kjo andërr ishte trondit për shkak të nji ekspedite të dështueme në Antarktidë, ku kishin humb jetën 19 persona.

Qeveria amerikane kishte nis të hezitonte me financue ekspeditat e tjera.

Pikërisht atë natë Kallnori të vitit 1888 lindi “National Geographic Society”- nji klub ekskluziv dijetarësh, me qëllimin që me perhapë në botë dijet mbi planetin tonë.

Në vitet që pasuen, NGS u ba nji prej organizatava ma të njohuna, me mbi 10 milionë anëtarë në 170 vende.

NGS nisi me botue edhe revistën National Geographic, 9 muej mbas themelimit.

Në dhjetë vitet e para, revista kishte vetëm 1400 lexues ekskluzivë.

Kjo ndryshoi ma vonë dhe sot asht ajo nji media me ndikim të jashtëzakonshëm.

Photo by Greg Marshall  Der Kaiserpinguin trägt eine "Crittercam" auf dem Rücken, die vom Meeresbiologen Greg Marshall entwickelt worden war, um die Lebenswelt von Tieren durch sie selbst dokumentieren zu lassen. Die Idee zur "Crittercam" hatte Marshall, als er 1986 beim Tauchen einen Schiffshalter beobachtete, der sich an einen Hai geheftet hatte. Marshall hatte sich die einmalige Perspektive des Fisches vorgestellt und daraufhin mit dem Bau der Kamera begonnen.
