  • Instprogcompcont_082007101905.pdf

    A number of considerations are necessary in instrumentation programming, many of which are either not applicable or applicable to a lesser degree in other types of programming. This paper discusses these problems in general terms and illustrates how they have been dealt with specifically. The latter is done by describing the programming and operation of a data reduction system.

  • Carbburnnuclat_120808095217.pdf

    "Carbon-Burning Nucleosyntesis at Constant Temperature" is part of the Orange Aid preprint Series in Nuclear Astrophysics, August 1968. The abstract states "Syntesis of elements during thermonuclear burning of carbon is examined at a series of temperatures (T=0.6, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2, 1.4) and for several initial compositions. Recent eperimental results (Ptterson, Winkler, and Zaidins 1968) for the 12C+!@C reaction are used. A general method for numerical solution of nuclear-reaction networkds is described. At the higher temperatures in the range now thought to be appropriate for carbon burning in stars,

    Ashworth and Gill are witnesses for the defendant, Abner Tate. Ashworth's deposition is first. He answers questions regarding Elizabeth Routt and her husbands, particularly of her character and what others said and thought of her. He includes at the end that he has heard of her destroying the lives of her husbands, stealing cotton by way of her slaves, and was accused of having one of her slaves shoot Abner Tate. Thomas O. Gill's deposition follows. He is asked about Elizabeth Routt and her husbands as well, including her character and what others said and thought of her. Gill also confirms hearing of the "great many charges alleged against her." Gill is then cross examined by the plantiff's, Elizabeth Routt, counsel. He is asked whether the charges against her character are of his knowledge or the publics'. Gill names those whom he heard the information from and admits that the charges were rumors rather than facts. He also details the pamphlet written by Abner Tate that he received from an unknown sender. He was also asked about the sicknesses of Routt's husbands and the attending physicians which he was unable to answer.

  • Listacadthessinc1961_091907132623.pdf

    This preliminary listing of academic theses of interest to historians and social scientists is made available for general information, critical comments and related suggestions. The NASA Historical Advisory Committee suggested that such a listing might provide useful perspective on contemporary scholarship. Mr. Charles Atkins, a member of our Summer Seminar on "History, Social Science and Space" and graduate student in Political Science at M.I.T., kindly undertook this task. The NASA Historical Staff is also sponsoring preparation of a bibliography of bibliographies on the history of aeronautics and astronautics, and is undertaking a list of research resources available for academic scholarship. These will be available sometime this fall. Eugene M. Emme, NASA Historian.; NNH-61.; FOREWORD: This listing represents a first attempt to compile academic theses of relevance to the history of aeronautics and astronautics. It has been estimated that almost 70,000 doctoral dissertations have been completed in American universities since 1961, so this select compilation must be regarded as preliminary. In accord with the desire of the Historical Staff of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to assist scholarly research, it is hoped that this list may be suggestive. It will, hopefully, stimulate a response which will permit additions to this listing of interest to historians and other scholars concerned with science, technology, and public policy in the twentieth century.

    Michael Bacato was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1927. When he started high school at the age of 14, Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese. When he graduated high school, he enlisted in the Navy in 1945 so he wouldn't have to go into the Army. He stayed in the Navy for two years. In the Navy, Michael was on a crew of the Destroyer. When he got discharged from the Navy, he then started college in 1948. To help pay for college, he started working with the merch marines selling out oil tanks. He finished this in 1951. Michael started out in college at New York University, and soon after he almost had to go back to the Navy because North Korea invaded South Korea. To avoid going back, he joined the ROTC at NYU with the airforce. In 1952, he entered the extended active duty with the United States airforce as a second lieutenant. He went to Keesler Airforce Base for training, and he spent two years there. There, he became a Radar Officer. After his training, Michael then started to become interested with Von Braun, and the development of rockets in Huntsville, AL. He then finally made a decision to leave the airforce, and he moved to Huntsville to work. He went into the Mechanical Engineering Design group. One of the first projects he was assigned to was the life support system, working with two monkeys. He then was offered a job in the Bioengineering group, which he liked much better, so he decided to stay with this group. His last program he worked on was on the Hubble Telescope, where he had the opportunity to work with Buzz Aldron.
