En 1633, la inquisición sometió a Galileo Galillei a un proceso en el que se vio obligado a ponerse de rodillas y abjurar de sus teorías acerca del movimiento de la tierra.

5.5.4 Loudspeakers

Speakers also produce an analogue output. The audio program inside the boundary converts the digital encoding of the sound to a series of electrical pulses that are sent to the speaker, where they cause a cone of stiffened paper (or some synthetic material) to vibrate in and out. This makes the air vibrate in the characteristic sound wave.
