Science and Technology, SR-71 Blackbird

The SR-71, unofficially known as the "Blackbird," is a long-range, advanced, strategic reconnaissance aircraft developed from the Lockheed A-12 and YF-12A aircraft.

The first flight of an SR-71 took place on December 22, 1964, and the first SR-71 to enter service was delivered to the 4200th (later, 9th) Strategic Reconnaissance Wing at Beale Air Force Base, Calif., in January 1966.

The Air Force retired its fleet of SR-71s on Jan. 26, 1990, because of a decreasing defense budget and high costs of operation. The Air Force returned the SR-71 to the active Air Force inventory in 1995 and began flying operational missions in January 1997.

The aircraft were permanently retired a few years later. Throughout its nearly 24-year career, the SR-71 remained the world's fastest and highest-flying operational aircraft. From 80,000 feet it could survey 100,000 square miles of Earth's surface per hour. On July 28, 1976, an SR-71 set two world records for its class: an absolute speed record of 2,193.167 miles per hour and an absolute altitude record of 85,068.997 feet.
SR-71 Blackbird, Edwards Air Force Base web siteThe Lockheed SR-71 remains one of the most exotic and mysterious aircraft of all time. Its mighty J58 engines, with a thrust equivalent to 45 diesel locomotives,
enable it to cruise for prolonged periods above Mach 3 and at altitudes in excess of 80,000 feet. Here one of the Blackbirds banks gently in its home skies over California's Mojave Desert. Note the Lockheed "Skunk Works" logo on its vertical stabilizer.

Isaac Newton was born in 1643 in Woolsthorpe, England. His father was a wealthy, uneducated farmer who died three months before Newton was born. Newton's mother remarried and he was left in the care of his grandmother. He attended Free Grammar school. Though Newton did not excel in school, he did earn the opportunity to attend Trinity College Cambridge where he wanted to study law.

His mother refused to pay for his education so while at college he worked as a servant to pay his way. Newton also kept a journal where he was able to express his ideas on various topics. He became interested in mathematics after buying a book at a fair and not understanding the math concepts it contained. Newton graduated with a bachelors degree in 1665.

The further pursuit of an education was interrupted by the plague. Trinity College was closed due to the highly contagious, deadly disease. Newton went home. It was during this time that Newton started to pursue his own ideas on math, physics, optics and astronomy. By 1666 he had completed his early work on his three laws of motion. The university reopened and Newton took a fellowship in order to obtain his masters degree. FULL TEXT

Science and Technology, Synthetic Aperture Radars

SAR Interferometry results for the 1992 Landers, CA earthquake.The Southern California Integrated GPS Network (SCIGN) is a group of connected GPS receivers which are used to monitor the build-up of strain along the two tectonic plates which are touching in southern California.
This is done by measuring very small movements at faults that aren't usually noticeable.

Synthetic Aperture Radars (SAR) produce all-weather, day and night, high quality pictures of the Earth's surface. By combining two or more pictures of the same area, it's possible to make maps that are highly detailed and show useful information about an area. This technique is called SAR interferometry. SAR interferometry has been applied to the study of earthquakes, volcanoes, glacier flow, landslides, and other geologic events. NASA's Role in Investigating Continental Drift

Ramadan

Presidential Message: Ramadan, 2006, White House
Presidential Message: Ramadan, 2006 Ramadan 2006

I send greetings to the many Muslims observing Ramadan in America and around the world.

Ramadan is the holiest time of the Muslim year and an important holiday when Muslims take time for prayer, fasting, and personal sacrifice. According to Islamic teachings, this month represents when God delivered His word to the prophet Muhammad in the form of the Qur'an. Ramadan is also an opportunity to gather with friends and family and show thanks for God's blessings through works of charity.

Ramadan and the upcoming holiday seasons are a good time to remember the common values that bind us together. Our society is enriched by our Muslim citizens whose commitment to faith reminds us of the gift of religious freedom in our country.

Laura and I send our best wishes for a blessed Ramadan. Ramadan Mubarak.

Cray X-MP From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Cray X-MP was a supercomputer designed, built and sold by Cray Research. The company's first parallel vector processor machine and a fourth generation super, it was the 1982 successor to the 1976 Cray-1, and the world's fastest computer 1983–1985. The principal designer was Steve Chen.

The X-MP shared the "horseshoe" design of the earlier machine and looked almost identical on the outside. The processors ran on a 9.5 nanosecond (105 MHz) clock (compared to 12.5 ns for the Cray-1A), delivering a theoretical peak speed of 200 megaflops per processor and 400 megaflops for the original two processor 1982 machine. Other improvements over the Cray-1 included: better chaining support and shared memory access with multiple memory ports per processor.

Rosh Hashanah (Rosh ha Shanah)



Rosh hashanah: "The New Year." The origin of this festival is given in Leviticus xxiii. 23—25: "And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first of the, month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work." And also in Numbers xxix. 1: "And in the seventh month, on the first of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you."

Though not one of the three great festivals, on each of which the male population of Israel was to appear before the Lord; it is, nevertheless, considered as one of the first among the principal holidays, has as such been celebrated by the Israelites since the giving of the law, and is known by the name of Rosh hashanah, or " new year."

Yom Kippur clip art

Jews Praying in the Synagogue on Yom Kippur or Jews pray, is a painting by Maurycy Gottlieb of 1878, depicting Ashkenazi Jews praying in the synagogue on Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement. Traditional elements shown include tallitot, kippot, the Torah, and the segregation of men and women in the synagogue. The artist has painted himself (to the right of the seated rabbi, looking outwards) among the people of his hometown of Drohobych.

UNIVAC 1108 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The UNIVAC 1108 was the second member of Sperry Rand's UNIVAC 1100 series of computers, introduced in 1964. Integrated circuits replaced the thin film memory that the UNIVAC 1107 used for register storage. Smaller and faster cores were used for main memory.

In addition to faster components, two significant design improvements were incorporated: base registers and additional hardware instructions. The two 18-bit base registers (one for instruction storage and one for data storage) permitted dynamic relocation: as a program got swapped in and out of main memory, its instructions and data could be placed anywhere each time it got reloaded.

The additional hardware instructions included double precision arithmetic, double word load, store, and comparison instructions. The processor could have up to 16 input/output channels for peripherals.

Americans are a diverse people, yet we are bound by common principles that teach us what it means to be American citizens. During National Hispanic Heritage Month, we recognize the many contributions of Hispanic Americans to our country. Through hard work, faith in God, and a deep love of family, Hispanic Americans have pursued their dreams and contributed to the strength and vitality of our Nation.
They have enriched the American experience and excelled in business, law, politics, education, community service, the arts, science, and many other fields.

Hispanic entrepreneurs are also helping build a better, more hopeful future for all by creating jobs across our country. The number of Hispanic-owned businesses is growing at three times the national rate, and increasing numbers of Hispanic Americans own their own homes. We continue to benefit from a rich Hispanic culture and we are a stronger country because of the talent and creativity of the many Hispanic Americans who have shaped our society.

Throughout our history, Hispanic Americans have also shown their devotion to our country in their military service. Citizens of Hispanic descent have fought in every war since our founding and have taken their rightful place as heroes in our Nation's history. Today, Americans of Hispanic descent are serving in our Armed Forces with courage and honor, and their efforts are helping make America more secure and bringing freedom to people around the world.

As we celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, we applaud the accomplishments of Hispanic Americans and recognize the contributions they make to our great land. To honor the achievements of Hispanic Americans, the Congress, by Public Law 100-402, as amended, has authorized and requested the President to issue annually a proclamation designating September 15 through October 15 as "National Hispanic Heritage Month."

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 15 through October 15, 2006, as National Hispanic Heritage Month. I call upon public officials, educators, librarians, and all the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fourteenth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand six, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-first.

GEORGE W. BUSH
