1020s in England

Events from the 1020s in England.

64 Arietis

64 Arietis (abbreviated 64 Ari) is a star in the northern constellation of Aries. 64 Arietis is the Flamsteed designation. It is faintly visible to the naked eye with an apparent visual magnitude of +5.67. This is a giant star with a stellar classification of K4 III. It has 11 times the radius of the Sun and shines with 42 times the Sun's luminosity. This energy is being radiated from the outer envelope at an effective temperature of 4,426 K, giving it the orange-hued glow of a K-type star. Based upon an annual parallax shift of 15.68 mas, this star is approximately 208 light-years (64 parsecs) distant from Earth.


Chlorotrifluoromethane, R-13, CFC-13, or Freon 13, is a non-flammable, non-corrosive chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and also a mixed halomethane. It is used as a refrigerant, however, due to concerns about its ozone-depleting potential, its use has been phased out due to the Montreal Protocol.

Double-precision floating-point format

Double-precision floating-point format is a computer number format, usually occupying 64 bits in computer memory; it represents a wide dynamic range of numeric values by using a floating radix point.

Floating point is used to represent fractional values, or when a wider range is needed than is provided by fixed point (of the same bit width), even if at the cost of precision. Double precision may be chosen when the range or precision of single precision would be insufficient.

In the IEEE 754-2008 standard, the 64-bit base-2 format is officially referred to as binary64; it was called double in IEEE 754-1985. IEEE 754 specifies additional floating-point formats, including 32-bit base-2 single precision and, more recently, base-10 representations.

One of the first programming languages to provide single- and double-precision floating-point data types was Fortran. Before the widespread adoption of IEEE 754-1985, the representation and properties of floating-point data types depended on the computer manufacturer and computer model, and upon decisions made by programming-language implementers. E.g., GW-BASIC's double-precision data type was the 64-bit MBF floating-point format.

Emperor Zhenzong

Emperor Zhenzong of Song (23 December 968 – 23 March 1022), personal name Zhao Heng, was the third emperor of the Song dynasty in China. He reigned from 997 to his death in 1022. His personal name was originally Zhao Dechang, but was changed to Zhao Yuanxiu in 983, Zhao Yuankan in 986, and finally Zhao Heng in 995. He was the third son of his predecessor, Emperor Taizong, and was succeeded by his sixth son, Emperor Renzong.

Gamma Aquilae

Gamma Aquilae (γ Aquilae, abbreviated Gamma Aql, γ Aql), also known as Tarazed, is a star in the constellation of Aquila. It has an apparent visual magnitude of 2.712, making it readily visible to the naked eye at night. Parallax measurements place it at a distance of 395 light-years (121 parsecs) from the Sun.

German submarine U-1022

German submarine U-1022 was a Type VIIC/41 U-boat of Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine. She was laid down on 6 May 1943 by Blohm & Voss in Hamburg, Germany, and commissioned on 7 June 1944, the day after the Allied landings in Normandy, with Kapitänleutnant Hans-Joachim Ernst in command. She sank two ships for a total of 1,720 metric tonnes. After the war she was handed over to the Allies and sunk in Operation Deadlight.

Gloucester Abbey

Gloucester Abbey was a Benedictine abbey in the city of Gloucester, England. Since 1541 it has been Gloucester Cathedral.

A Christian place of worship had stood on the abbey site since Anglo-Saxon times. Benedictine rule was introduced about 1022 and the abbey dedicated to St Peter. The fraternity was invigorated when King William I appointed the energetic Norman monk Serlo to be the abbot. Serlo built the impressive abbey Church of St Peter.In the Middle Ages the abbey became rich and powerful. King Henry III was crowned there in 1216 at the age of nine. King Edward II, who had died in nearby Berkeley Castle, was buried there in 1327 and a shrine erected over his tomb. The additional funds this generated enabled the east end of the church to be rebuilt in the new perpendicular style and the west end to be remodelled. Later work created the south porch and the present tower and Lady Chapel.

It is recorded that the abbey lost about a quarter of its complement of monks in 1377 due to the Black Death. In 1378, when Parliament was held in Gloucester, the king stayed at the abbey.

On 2 January 1540, the abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII as part of the Dissolution of the Monasteries and granted to the newly created Bishop of Gloucester who had previously been the last Abbot of Tewkesbury Abbey. It became The Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and the Holy and Indivisible Trinity in Gloucester the following year.Many of the former abbey buildings have been Grade I listed, including the Cathedral, the Cathedral Cloisters, Cathedral Treasury and the Cathedral Chapter House, together with the Little Cloister, Little Cloister House, the Infirmary and Church House, the former Abbot's Lodging.

Hog Islander

Hog Islanders is the slang for ships built to Emergency Fleet Corporation designs number 1022 and 1024. These vessels were cargo and transport ships, respectively, built under government direction and subsidy to address a shortage of ships in the United States Merchant Marine during World War I. American International Shipbuilding, subsidized by the United States Shipping Board, built an emergency shipyard on Hog Island just outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the site of the present-day Philadelphia International Airport.

No ships were produced in time to participate in World War I, but many ships were active in World War II, with roughly half of those produced at Hog Island being sunk in that conflict. During the planning stage names based on the "aboriginal inhabitants of the United States" for 120 ships to be built at Hog Island were selected by First Lady Edith Wilson (Mrs. Woodrow Wilson), although most were changed before completion.

Máel Sechnaill mac Domnaill

Máel Sechnaill mac Domnaill (Modern Irish: Maolsheachlann Mac Domhnaill), also called Máel Sechnaill Mór, Máel Sechnaill II, and anglicized as Malachy McDonnell (949 – 2 September 1022), was King of Mide and High King of Ireland. His great victory at the Battle of Tara against Olaf Cuaran in 980 resulted in Gaelic control of the Kingdom of Dublin.

NGC 1022

NGC 1022 is a barred spiral galaxy located at approximately 66 million light years away in the constellation of Cetus. It was discovered on September 10, 1785 by William Herschel.

Olof Skötkonung

Olof Skötkonung (c. 980–1022) was King of Sweden, son of Eric the Victorious and, according to Icelandic sources, Sigrid the Haughty. He succeeded his father in c. 995. He stands at the threshold of recorded history, since he is the first Swedish ruler about whom there is substantial knowledge. He is regarded as the first king known to have ruled both the Swedes and the Geats.

Roman Catholic Diocese of Roskilde

The Roman-Catholic Diocese of Roskilde (Danish: Roskildes Stift) was a diocese within the Roman-Catholic Church which was established in Denmark some time before 1022 and lasted until the Lutheran Reformation.

Ruger 10/22

The Ruger 10/22 is a series of semi-automatic rifles produced by American firearm manufacturer Sturm, Ruger & Co., chambered for the .22 Long Rifle rimfire cartridge. It uses a patented 10-round rotary magazine, though higher capacity box magazines are also available. The standard Carbine version of the Ruger 10/22 has been in production continuously since 1964, making it one of the most successful rimfire rifle designs in history, with numerous third party manufacturers making parts and accessories for upgrading and customization. In fact, the 10/22's aftermarket is so prolific, that a 10/22 can be built with completely non-Ruger made components.

A magnum version of the 10/22, chambered for the .22 WMR cartridge, was made from 1998 to 2006. A .17 HMR version, the 10/17, was announced in 2004, but was only listed in the catalog for two years.

SS Mary Luckenbach (1918)

SS Mary Luckenbach, was a cargo ship of the United States Navy. She was launched in 1918 and completed the following year by the American International Shipbuilding Corp., Hog Island, Pennsylvania as USS Sac City (ID-3861).

Sidi Mahrez

Sidi Mahrez ben Khalaf or Abu Mohamed Mahrez ben Khalaf ben Zayn (Arabic: سيدي محرز بن خلف‎; 951–1022) was a Tunisian Wali, scholar of the Maliki school of jurisprudence and a Qadi. He is considered to be the patron-saint of the city of Tunis.


Tymnet was an international data communications network headquartered in Cupertino, California that used virtual call packet switched technology and X.25, SNA/SDLC, ASCII and BSC interfaces to connect host computers (servers) at thousands of large companies, educational institutions, and government agencies. Users typically connected via dial-up connections or dedicated asynchronous connections. The business consisted of a large public network that supported dial-up users and a private network business that allowed government agencies and large companies (mostly banks and airlines) to build their own dedicated networks. The private networks were often connected via gateways to the public network to reach locations not on the private network. Tymnet was also connected to dozens of other public networks in the United States and internationally via X.25/X.75 gateways.

As the Internet grew and became almost universally accessible in the late 1990s, the need for services such as Tymnet migrated to the Internet style connections, but still had some value in the Third World and for specific legacy roles. However the value of these links continued to decrease, and Tymnet shut down in 2004.

USS LST-1022

USS LST-1022 was an LST-542-class tank landing ship built for the United States Navy during World War II.

The ship was laid down on 18 April 1944, at the Fore River Shipyard of the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation in Quincy, Massachusetts, launched on 16 May 1944, and commissioned on 24 May 1944.

United Nations Security Council Resolution 1022

United Nations Security Council resolution 1022, adopted on 22 November 1995, after recalling all resolutions on the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia, the Council suspended measures in previous resolutions related to the former Yugoslavia.Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia and Montenegro were praised for their participation in peace talks in the United States and the initialling of the General Framework Agreement. The parties had also agreed to help with the search for two French pilots who had gone missing in Bosnia and Herzegovina and to ensure their safe return. The importance of co-operation with the International Conference on the Former Yugoslavia was stressed.

Acting under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, measures imposed in resolutions 757 (1992), 787 (1992), 820 (1993), 942 (1994), 943 (1994), 988 (1995), 992 (1995), 1003 (1995) and 1015 (1995) were suspended with immediate effect. The suspension would not apply to the Bosnian Serb Army until they had withdrawn behind the lines of separation. Additionally, the Council would end the suspension of measures against Serbia and Montenegro and Bosnian Serb authorities after consultations with the High Representative among others on the fifth working day after they note any party was non-compliant. Ten days after the first free and fair election, all measures would be terminated. During the suspension, frozen funds would also be released.

Resolution 1022 was adopted by 14 votes to none and one abstention from Russia.
