1970 Pacific Junction

” A four-week Pacific cruise this spring by the U.S. Navy research study vessel DeSteiguer has produced additional evidence that the earths crust consists of discrete drifting plates. The voyage supplies an example of theory successfully anticipating truth: if three oceanic plates ought to wander apart, a wedge-shaped location would appear on the seafloor with its apex at the triple juncture. The McKenzie-Morgan hypothesis was released jointly in 1968; it led among W. Jason Morgans Princeton associates, Kenneth S. Deffeyes, to compute the size and shape of the triple-juncture wedge to be expected in the Gal√°pagos area. Deffeyes then led the DeSteiguer exploration and collected the information that proved the correctness of the hypothesis.”

Malaria Control

The application is made with knapsack pump sprayers or by ways of automatic drip cans. Of course, the expensiveness of the oil is an element to reckon with, however one little Southern lumbering town made reliable its control operations at a per capita cost of $1.23.

1870

” In our practice as patent solicitors we have actually regularly been hired to prepare applications for female inventors; and we can state to those who are unbelievers in regard to the power of women to accomplish, as a class, anything higher than a pound-cake or a piece of embroidery, that the developments made by ladies, and for which they obtain patents through our firm, are usually found to be in their practical character, and in their adjustment and choice of ways to effect a guaranteed purpose, totally equivalent to the inventions made by guys.”

Modern Timepieces

” In the Waltham Watch Factory, simple hand machines, with which a few of the parts of the watch had been produced, were here brought together, and hundreds of brand-new ones, at many numerous countless dollars expense, were developed, and all interwoven, as it were, into one vast mechanical organism. A single steam engine disperses its power by ways of driving shafts through an entire nest of similar working rooms, and the outcome is the production of watches at the rate of one every three minutes, and with an uniformity and excellence which have at when and permanently old-fashioned all previous approaches of their production.”

How We Make Things

1982: By the time this September issue was published, computers, which emerged in the 1940s, were common in many workplaces.Humans, for a long time, have actually been preparing for future needs by making things. From the founding of this publication in 1845 and for the next century, the efforts of physics and chemistry– with aid from the brand-new management sciences– developed more and much better machines and energy sources, increased the amount of items made and the cravings for raw products. Maybe sooner or later we will harness the power of nature and utilize chemical bonds and biological materials to do our labor for us.
