en:Nebular hypothesis[edit]

(cs:Mlhovinová hypotéza) (zh:星雲假說)

(Net support = 0; Against = 50%) (Group 3) (No votes from 11 days)

The nebular hypothesis is the most widely accepted model in the field of cosmogony to explain the formation and evolution of the Solar System. It suggests that the Solar System formed from nebulous material. The theory was developed by Immanuel Kant and published in his Allgemeine Naturgeschichte und Theorie des Himmels ("Universal Natural History and Theory of the Heavens"), published in 1755. Originally applied to the Solar System, the process of planetary system formation is now thought to be at work throughout the Universe…

en:Horses in warfare[edit]

(fr:Rôle du cheval dans la guerre) (es:Caballo en la guerra)

(Net support = -1; Against = 66.667%) (Group 5) (No votes from 11 days)

The first use of horses in warfare occurred over 5,000 years ago. The earliest evidence of horses ridden in warfare dates from Eurasia between 4000 and 3000 BC. A Sumerian illustration of warfare from 2500 BC depicts some type of equine pulling wagons. By 1600 BC, improved harness and chariot designs made chariot warfare common throughout the Ancient Near East, and the earliest written training manual for war horses was a guide for training chariot horses written about 1350 BC…
