Adorable science is adorable.
Walter S. McAfee is the African American mathematician and physicist who first calculated the speed of the moon. McAfee participated in Project Diana in the 1940s - a U.S. Army program, created to determine whether a high frequency radio signal could penetrate the earth’s outer atmosphere. To test this, scientists wanted to bounce a radar signal off the moon and back to earth. But the moon was a swiftly moving target, impossible to hit without knowing its exact speed. McAfee made the necessary calculations, and on January 10, 1946, the team sent a radar pulse through a special 40-feet square antenna towards the moon. Two and a half seconds later, they received a faint signal, proving that transmissions from earth could cross the vast distances of outer space. Official news of this scientific breakthrough did not include McAfee’s name, nor was there any recognition of the essential role he played. But Americans could not have walked on the moon had it not been for Walter S. McAfee and his calculations.
first like a muhf*cka.
"Papa, what did the ’80s sound like?"
I just laughed so hard I almost puked.
I am so glad I know you, and that people make things like this.
This is humanity’s most important achievement.
someone make a fucking hardcore techno remix of this shit with a sick bass line and synths, DO IT
The harmonies. The fade out. The fact that it has easily been twenty years since I’ve heard or seen this kind of printer, or the words “dot matrix” and it wasn’t referring to Spaceballs.
