But people are still being executed.

1863—Constantine Stanislavsky, theatrical director, actor, is born.
Stanislavsky invents a new acting method, which involves actor psychologically putting him(her)self in place of his character.

In 1902 one of the first wind tunnels is created under his direction, and in 1904 the first European Institute of Aerodynamics is established also under his direction. In 1920 Institute of Red Air Forces Engineers is set up, which becomes Zhukovsky Air-Force Engineer Academy in 1922.
