Day 142 – Why the World Is Round

The world is round so that friendship may encircle it. – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

What Is It?!?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 141)

Yesterday’s picture was part of an airplane engine that we saw at the Tuskegee Airfield in Alabama. We were able to tour the hangar museum, which was full of planes, parachutes, working replicas, old suits that my son and the rest of his classmates got to pose in, and we even saw two planes take off. Spectacular!

  1. IT just looked like ordinary mould.
    The kind of mould you get when you leave a pair of sports shoes in a bag for a year or two, but it was anything but ordinary.
    Miguel Shreckengost was the first to understand it’s potential.
    Miguel had long been an admirer of Howard Florey. Florey was the scientist who developed Penicillin. He understood what Fleming had stumbled over but had failed to recognise.
    Shreckengost did not discover hypercillium but he did develop it into what we know today.
    Without it we would not be able fly.
    Imagine not being able to fly, it seems silly I know. Once upon a time there were no electric vehicles either, but not being able to fly?
    Ridiculous!
