Transits of Uranus through Gemini are closely related to information and knowledge. The main topics are the discoveries in the areas of acquisition, processing, data transmission and storage, dissemination of knowledge. An important theme of these transits is also research of abilities of the mind to perceive and interpret information.
Passing through Gemini in 1608-1614, Uranus marked the beginning of journalism. The first European weekly newspapers Aviso and Relation were first published in 1609 in Germany, Ordinari Wochezeitung – in 1610 in Switzerland.
Transits of Uranus through Gemini can bring inventions that extend the capabilities of people to receive new information about the world. In 1608, the Dutch master John Lippershey invented the telescope. The transit of 1858-1865 brought significant events in the field of data transmission. Telegraph united countries and continents. In 1858, transatlantic telegraph line was established. In 1860, telegraph cable under the Mediterranean Sea brought together Malta with Alexandria, the cable under the Gulf – England and India.
In 1861, at the meeting of the Physical Society in Frankfurt am Main the German inventor Johann Philipp Reis demonstrated the transmission of sound over a distance by means of an electric wire device that he created. It was a prototype of a modern phone.
During the last passage through Gemini Uranus has brought a revolution in the processing and storage of information. In 1941, the German engineer K. Zuse created the first programmable computer Z3, in 1948 – the first programming language. In 1943, the American scientists J. Mauchly and J. Eckert started to develop the world’s first electronic digital computer ENIAC, which was established in 1946. In 1949, the Electronic Control Company has released the first tube-processing machine BINAC on the basis of these developments. During the passage of Uranus through Gemini in the 17th century, Francis Bacon wrote his famous The New Organon, which created the basis of scientific thinking. Ideas of The New Organon were firstly given in Cogitata et Visa, issued in 1612. At the same time Galileo Galilei made an invaluable contribution to the establishment of a new type of science. His efforts led to appearing a new form of knowledge of nature – mathematize natural science, based on accurate experiment.
