Passage

1 am not in favor that the cultural perspective of education should be ignored. On the other hand, I think, it is necessary to the production of the sort of adult who best fits the modern world. But I think, what is important in cultural education should be conveyed, at any rate in the early stages, by methods far more attractive than now used. History and geography should be taught at first by means of the cinema. When taught this way, they will give pleasure; attention will be prompt and therefore the impression will be less temporary. Despite reforming movements, there is still among educators a feeling that what is enjoyed without effort cannot have much educational value. It would have made children aware of the manners and customs of tribes and nation’s parts utterly remote from their own. Education conducted on these lines would do more than many boors to cure provincialism in space and to more children realize that actual human beings with actual feelings can be outwardly very different from the people among whom they, but inwardly composed of the same human material. A Zulu would not look hinky remote or savage but one like themselves.

Passage

There is no atmosphere on the Moon, which means there can be no seas, rivers or water of any kind. We are accustomed to think of water as a liquid which does not boil away until it reaches a temperature of 212°, but if ever we picnic high up on a mountain, we find out our mistake. We soon discover that water boils more easily and at a lower temperature there than on the plains below. The reason is that there is less weight of air to keep the molecules of the liquid pressed down and so prevent them from flying off by evaporation. If there were no air pressure at all, the water would evaporate no matter how low its temperature and this is precisely what would happen on the Moon.
