|Leonardo da Vinci had a special interest in water, both practical and theoretical. Between the years 1506 and 1510, as he shuttled between projects in Milan and Florence, Leonardo jotted down his thoughts in a scientific notebook. His intention was to write a treatise on the effects produced by moving water, not only on Earth but also in the sky.|
