A Court of Inquiry was held and the accident investigation was given to the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough. By using debris recovered from the Elba crash and using a known good airframe to do pressurized hull testing in a water tank, the causes of these accidents were traced to structural failure around the square windows and ADF antenna mounts due to metal fatigue. The Comet fleet was grounded while the lessons learned from these crashes were implemented into the next generation of Comets. Unfortunately for de Havilland, Boeing had taken the findings from the investigation and applied them to jet aircraft still on the drawing board. These improvements in metallurgy and design aided Boeing in dominating the world market in producing commercial jet aircraft that were larger and had longer ranges than the Comet.
Was the Air War in World War I an Experiment? Submitted by: Tyler Barnes Course code: CHC 2D Submitted to: Mr.Fuciarelli Due Date: Tuesday, May 21st,2013 Was an airplane ever thought to be an effective weapon in war or was it just an experiment? The airplane could be the most useless part of World War I. As the Allied forces thought it could be a turning point in the war it became known that the airplane resulted in numerous deaths in World War I. At the beginning of the war numerous pilots died even during recon.
In the 2011 season, the NCAA changed its rules and enforced that there would be new aluminum bats that were similar to wooden bats. The reason for the change is somewhat complex and many years of research has been done to finally lead to this modification. The NCAA made the change in bats is because of a process called BBCOR or “Bat-Ball Coefficient of Restitution” standard. In a nutshell, it measures the bounciness of the ball when it hits the bat. Many people are scratching there heads because this change has led to less homeruns and total runs in general.
With that in mind, America also had missiles in Turkey targeting the Soviet Union. In The fog of war it says “We (America) lucked out from not having a nuclear war”. In the interview it says “we went eyeball to eyeball and they blinked”, referring to the friction between the United States and the Soviet Union. JFK strongly tried to keep America out of war with the Soviet Union. Kennedy asked how many American causality’s there would be if one of the Soviet Union’s missiles would go off in the United States.
The article also says that he wrote a book about the moon landing being fake. The article also talks about how FOX did a program on the moon landing being a hoax. But the main point of the article is to debunk all doubt on the moon landing being a hoax. I think that this is a great source when it comes to making the argument that we did go to the moon. It looks at things from a scientific point of view and you can’t really argue with
After being stripped of the right to build artillery guns according to the Treaty of Versailles, they began to develop missiles, like the V1 and V2, so as to replace the need for long-range combat support. During World War 2, the Germans developed the world's first operational combat fighter Jet, the Messerschmidt 262. This jet, despite being limited in numbers, provided a substantial fear factor amongst the Allied bomber crew headed to German cities. The Germans also developed the first military helicopter, which was used as aerial reconnaissance. Another amazing development was the 'Blitzkrieg' doctrine, which utilized shock troopers and mobile units to strike hard and fast into the enemy's territory; a tactic still used in modern warfare, especially in the 1991 Gulf War.
This may not seem important now, but at the time both countries were conducting top-secret nuclear research and while they did not want to publicly reveal their progress, they did want to project the message to the world that—whatever progress they had made—it was better and farther along than the progress of their enemies. NASA’s space program became the United State’s poster-child of our technological achievement and, as such, it also became a tool of international intimidation and of national defense. When the Challenger Space Shuttle exploded over Cape Canaveral in 1986, it was like a giant sign flashing overhead that the US was not as capable and powerful as previous thought. President Ronald Reagan acted quickly in speaking to the country about the tragedy, but his aim was not simply to reassure the public that everything was okay. In his Challenger speech, President Reagan persuaded the American public to continue to support the space program through his appeal to traditional American values of exploration and discovery, national pride, and national unity.
The Taser became the primary selection of law enforcement because the baton was insufficient of controlling people. Many law enforcement agencies have adopted this tactic over the years and even though there are several lawsuits brought against law enforcement agencies, the Taser serves as the best non-lethal tactic for law enforcement to stabilize people when the Jack Cover in the late 1960’s and 1970’s. It is an acronym for the Tom A. Swift Electronic Rifle. He worked as an aerospace scientist affiliated with NASA when he came up
K-19, the name of a Soviet nuclear submarine, was an example of the latter. Information about said nuclear submarine was withheld from the public for nearly 30 years, not being released until 1990. Once this information was released the movie K-19: The Widowmaker, directed by Kathryn Bigelow, was destined to be released as a tale of heroism. Although the basis of K-19 lies in truth, there are inaccuracies that can be found throughout the film, as with all movie adaptations. The first inaccuracy comes from before the film even begins.
Radio waves are commonly used as a war strategy and were heavily used during World War II. In fact, the proper use of radar could have very well changed the entire course of the war. On December 7th, 1941, operators of a radar plane detector in Oahu, Hawaii, detected the approach of Japanese aircraft. During war situations, radar is used to detect incoming attacks and to accurately aim attacks, providing immediate news about war status. The operators spotting the incoming aircraft mentioned their findings to their superior who quickly dismissed the warning as the operators were inexperienced.
