Baade was thus able to establish that while our galaxy was somewhat bigger than normal it was not the largest, as Hubble’s work had implied.
After a time at the Hoagland Laboratory, New York, as a lecturer and researcher in bacteriology, he joined the Rockefeller Institute Hospital (1913–48). While investigating the pneumococcus bacteria responsible for causing lobar pneumonia, Avery found that the bacteria produced soluble substances, derived from the cell wall and identified as polysaccharides, that were specific in their chemical composition for each different type of pneumococcus. This work provided a basis for establishing the immunologic identity of a cell in biochemical terms.
Without financial support Babbage never saw the project develop beyond the design stage. The more ambitious analytical engine, first described in 1834, was similarly unsuccessful. Unlike the Difference Engine, this was to be a general computing machine in the manner of a modern computer, and was intended to be programmed with punched cards. One of Babbage’s more enthusiastic supporters in this work was Ada, Countess of Lovelace.
