SAN FRANCISCO, EARTH — Dr. Leonard Kopalski, a renown astrophysicist, published an honorary publication this week chronicling the greatest historical works in physics.
Studying more than 900 years of research, Dr. Kopalski dissertated the works of more than 60 historical physicists. Starting with the legendary Sir Isaac Newton, Kopalski described the progress of more than one millennium of research into physics, chemistry, and the secrets of the cosmos.
Other notable figures are described as well, including Blaise Pascal, Albert Einstein, and the late Zefram Cochrane. Other species were mentioned as well, such as the Vulcan T’Karmu and the Bajoran Kizma. These figures were responsible for discovering similar ideas as their human counterparts.
Dr. Kopalski wrote the publication mostly as a piece of historical appreciation, but it also serves as a reference framework for new Federation scientists to delve into these ancient theories to prove their worth in the warp-technological era.
Dr. Kopalski was not afraid to include several controversial people in his documents, such as the Klingon scientist Waafrun, who was responsible for the creation of nuclear weapons on Qo’Nos.
“In my study, I found it important to include all historical figures, no matter how dangerous their ideas might’ve been,” said Dr. Kopalski.
Federation scientists have commended Dr. Kopalski for his thorough work and are looking to spreading the publication around Federation space.
“It truly shows how far the Federation has come in its scientific research over so many years,” said Minister Usei of Culture on the piece.
Dr. Kopalski hopes that the dissertation becomes part of a further study into the history of science, a field he fears has been neglected for some time now. However, the professor confessed that many of the works of human scientists were lost during the nuclear wars. He had to carefully piece together evidence from disparate sources, most notably the ancient Vatican archives that were mostly spared in those disastrous times.
