CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Johann Gutenberg (2103 words)
Gutenberg was the son of Friele (Friedrich) Gänsfleisch and Else Wyrich.
In 1450 Gutenberg formed a partnership with the wealthy burgher, Johann Fust of Mainz, for the purpose of completing his contrivance and of printing the so-called "42-line Bible", a task which was finished in the years 1453-1455 at the Hof zum Humbrecht (today Schustergasse, 18, 20).
Gutenberg next manufactured a new printer's outfit with the assistance he received from Conrad Humery, a distinguished and wealthy doctor of law, leader of the popular party, and chancellor of the council.
Beno Gutenberg, June 4, 1889—January 25, 1960 | By Leon Knopoff | Biographical Memoirs (8083 words)
Gutenberg calculated "the travel-times of waves to be reflected and refracted at the surface of the core, outside as well as inside"; the waves refracted at the core-mantle boundary are the P´ or PKP phases, and the reflected waves are the PcP phases.
Gutenberg confirmed and made precise the observations of Tams, Angenheister, and Macelwane in 1921-22, in which the velocities of propagation of surface waves were faster across the oceanic than across the continental portions of the Earth's surface (1924).
Gutenberg was especially pleased with his calculation of the distribution of the density, and hence the elastic moduli, as a function of depth in the Earth (1923).
