As soon as he advertised the matter,

ASTRONOMY STILL AT FAULT
Men of Science Forced to Admit Exact
Results From Their Calculations
Are rtot Possible.
The celebrated? observatory at Green Greenwich,
wich, Greenwich, the place from which we reckon
longitude, was founded by Charles H
in 1675, mainly for the purpose of In
vestigating the movements1 of the moon
in the interests of navigation. Although
in the intervening two and a half cen
turies astronomers have worked at the
problem, the moon has not yet become
entirely amenable to their mathemat
Ics. In a recent report of the obser
vatory at Greenwich attention is In
vited to the increasing deviation be
tween the calculated position of the
moon in the sky and its real position
shown by the Greenwich observations.
The deviation has lately been growing
in a serious manner. The error s&st
year was more than twelve times as
large as the error twenty years ago,
and the average annual increase dur during
ing during the two decades has amounted, to
half a second of arc in longitude. The
reason that astronomers have failed
k in getting exact results from calcula
tions based on the dynamical laws of
gravitation, Is possibly the existence
of some attractive force that they have
not yet discovered, although the result
may also be affected by the true shape
of the earth, which still awaits ac
