Spitfire

Goole Academy

Perhaps the most famous plane of all time in the RAF’s possession is the Supermarine 300, more famously known as the Supermarine Spitfire. Its first flight was 5 March 1936 and after flying it, the test pilot, “Mutt” Summers, reportedly told the designers “Don’t touch anything.”

Moon walks

Goole Academy

The Moon has only been walked on by 12 people; all American males. The first man to set foot on the Moon in 1969 was Neil Armstrong on the Apollo 11 mission, while the last man to walk on the Moon in 1972 was Gene Cernan on the Apollo 17 mission. Since then the Moon has only be visited by unmanned vehicles.

The dark side (of the moon)

Goole Academy

The dark side of the moon is a myth. In reality both sides of the Moon see the same amount of sunlight however only one face of the Moon is ever seen from Earth. This is because the Moon rotates around on its own axis in exactly the same time it takes to orbit the Earth, meaning the same side is always facing the Earth. The side facing away from Earth has only been seen by the human eye from spacecraft.

Quick sand

Goole Academy

Quicksand is essentially ordinary sand with the only difference being that in case of a quicksand, the sand is actually over saturated by water, with no escape route for the water. The presence of excess water reduces the level of friction between two neighboring sand particles.

Shape Memory Polymers:

Goole Academy

Shape Memory Polymers (SMP) are similar to Shape Memory Alloys except the obvious fact they are made from a polymer matrix. They possess much greater recoverable strains than the alloys, but typically under lower forces. Morphing structures has been the area of greatest use to date for SMP’s.

The Collapse of The Quebec Bridge

Goole Academy

The Quebec Bridge collapsed twice in Canada. The first time, it was in 1907, and the second time, it happened in 1916. This disaster is known to have killed as many as 88-89 workers. It was the largest Cantilever bridge in Canada and around the world. When the bridge collapsed in 1907, there were workers who were working on the Cantilever arm, and almost 55 people were reported dead, either because of the falling debris or due to drowning. It was a big disaster for them, and they thought they had learned their lesson. So, they decided to build the bridge again. The second time, the
