I'm very glad you liked it! 8-)
I find old science books to be very accessible - but then again, that's probably because we learn so much of this in highschool at the latest...

In future, please make sure to post the length of your recording too, so we can check that everything has arrived on our end.
Cheers,
Ava.

Here is section 4:
https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/marvelsmodernscience_04_severing_128kb.mp3
Duration 23:28

A few notes:

At about 10:20, I say "about one-fiftieth of a second."
The text says "about the one-fiftieth of a second."
This doesn't sound right, so I omitted the "the".

At about 12:12, I say "Of other moving picture machines..."
The text says "Of other moving pictures machines..."
This doesn't sound right, and other places in the text say "moving picture machines"; so I omitted the "s".

At about 15:54, I say "and an aviator..."
The text says "and the aviator..."
This is my error! :cry:
But I hope it doesn't have to be redone, because matching it up is hard.

At about 18:58, I say "worthy of the history..."
The text says "worthy the history..."
This doesn't sound right, so I added "of".

That's all...I hope it's OK.

Thank you!

It's always okay to make smaller changes if the text is obviously wrong. And since this is not a word-perfect project, a small mistake here and there will not break us either!

Don't worry about tiny things like these - it's supposed to be fun after all. :wink:
Cheers,
Ava.

One can really feel the enthusiasm of the author for astronomy in this chapter.
