That required the Super Hornet to effectively satisfy the mission sets of three aircraft. Boeing was responsible for ensuring that the airframe could handle that challenge, and succeeded in most cases. What Boeing was not contracted to solve, however, was how to ensure aircrew maintained proficiency in the required mission sets. Exacerbating the issue are the resource and hour limitations that fleet squadrons are currently experiencing. Hazard Reports (HAZREPs) and Safety Investigation Reports (SIRs)…

Unfortunately, after about 56 hours into their flight, an oxygen tank crippled due to an explosion inside of it.

    Radiocarbon dating was invented similarly with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Furthermore, due to the long duration of time elapse, it was hard to date the time when the scrolls were produced. Although the hot and dry climate of the Dead Sea prevented it from rotting severely, it was still difficult to exclude the containments included in the fragments and scrolls. As a result, the process of processing the samples was intricate. At the first part of the process, the scientists tried to…

(Page 37, ‘’On the yellow paper Toby had printed in red ink ‘PRAKING MISTEAK’ and signed his name ‘TOBY’ in a childish-looking hand.’’) The fact that…

    • 3 Pages

    If scientists know the original amount of 14C in a creature when it died, they can measure the current amount and then calculate how many half-lives have passed. There is MUCH more, but it's freaking boring, so I think you get the jist of it. Anywhoo, Dr. Willard Libby, the founder of the carbon-14 dating method, assumed the ratio to be constant. His reasoning was based on his belief in evolution, which "assumes" the earth MUST be billions of years old. Assumptions in the scientific community…

A fast lens refers to the maximum aperture of the lens or the amount of light that your lens will let in. This is usually designated by an “f-number” – for example f/2.8.
