My Exotic Youth

My name comes from my Jersey heritage: my family had lived there for many hundreds of years, This book covers the Mauritius period of my life to about 13 years of age, and the Jersey period to about 16.

Having a British accent, people ask me where I am from and they expect me to say Oh! Im from England, so that they can follow up with I thought so!. Sometimes they say I thought perhaps that the accent is Canadian or Australian. I was raised by British parents in Mauritius, a British colony with French schools, and in Jersey, an island in the English Channel with a long French background but part of the United Kingdom for well over 200 years. My name comes from my Jersey heritage: my family had lived there for many hundreds of years, This book covers the Mauritius period of my life to about 13 years of age, and the Jersey period to about 16. At first it was about filling in the family record for my children and grandchildren, but family stories of hooliganism required me to refute these! Mauritius is a subtropical island where coconut palms grow down to golden beaches with warm blue water, where sugar-cane fields cover the countryside, where small monkeys scuttle along the river valleys, and where bananas, peaches and mangoes grow fresh for the picking a paradise to grow up in. Jersey is a small island quite similar to England in its ways, its flora, and its fauna no bananas or monkeys - but with French names for places and people, and French laws and habits. Being south of England, the climate is milder. Farming of market crops flowers, vegetables, and cattle flourish. Jersey bulls and cows draw huge prices. The adventures I had with my brother and several friends were mostly boyhood fun, but some came close to breaking our necks or breaking the law! While around 10 to 12 years old, we set off on a 10 mile hike through unknown river valleys hoping to reach our favorite beach, and only got home after midnight by the grace of God and a friendly trucker. Later, we clambered among 200 foot cliffs over the ocean to collect birds eggs. We set fire to cliff-top grass and gorse. We drove the car to a beach picnic when none of us was yet 13. Brian became an aeronautical engineer through study for a BSc degree at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, England, supported by a Ministry of Supply 5-year sholarship, then by winning a King George VI Memorial Fellowship to study in the USA for a MAe degree at The Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, NY, USA. He later worked for a PhD degree at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA, USA. His career in the aeronautical industry began as a Lecturer at the College of Aeronautics, Cranfield, near Bletchley, England, and then covered 7 years at the Lockheed Research Laboratories in Palo Alto, CA, and 26 years at Boeing Aerospace Co. in Seattle, WA. He has written many technical papers and, since retiring in 1995, a book on Ultrasound and Eastic Waves. He married Shirley Cawood of Brooklyn, New York and they now live in Seattle and Whidbey Island, WA. They have a son and daughter and three grand children.

"Fifty years after the founding of NASA, from 28 to 29 October 2008, the NASA History Division convened a conference whose purpose was a scholarly analysis of NASA's first 50 years. Over two days at NASA Headquarters, historians and policy analysts discussed NASA's role in aeronautics, human spaceflight, exploration, space science, life science, and Earth science, as well as crosscutting themes ranging from space access to international relations in space and NASA's interaction with the public. The speakers were asked to keep in mind the following questions: What are the lessons learned from the first 50 years? What is NASA's role in American culture and in the history of exploration and discovery? What if there had never been a NASA? Based on the past, does NASA have a future? The results of those papers, elaborated and fully referenced, are found in this 50th anniversary volume."--Introduction.

The airplane ranks as one of history's most ingenious and phenomenal inventions. It has surely been one of the most world changing. How ideas about aerodynamics first came together and how the science and technology evolved to forge the airplane into the revolutionary machine that it became is the epic story told in this six-volume series, The Wind and Beyond: A Documentary Journey through the History of Aerodynamics in America. Following up on Volume I's account of the invention of the airplane and the creation of the original aeronautical research establishment in the United States, Volume II explores the airplane design revolution of the 1920s and 1930s and the quest for improved airfoils. Subsequent volumes cover the aerodynamics of airships, flying boats, rotary-wing aircraft, breaking the sound barrier, and more.
