U.S. army and Air strength pilots appear to be fairly keen on it, flooring crews like its effortless maintainability, and with modelers it kind of feels to be a well-liked topic.

Its operational features, really its nice variety and persistence on in simple terms its inner gas, made it a great performer that gained it the compliment and affection of everybody who used to be attached with it. but it didn't turn into the headline grabber that the F-4s did whilst combating the MiGs, or that the F-105s did of their prolonged bombing compaigns over North Vietnam.

Part ONE chapter ONE ca. 100,000-300 BCE: Prehistoric Chemist to Chemical Philosopher—the Seeds There are those who envision prehistoric peoples as grunting, stooping, quasi-humans with hair in unusual places, so there are no doubt those who would take exception to the title with which this chapter begins. Prehistoric implies before written record. If we define science as the systematic recording and interpretation of observed phenomena, then prehistory is prescience—“prehistoric chemist” is an erudite oxymoron—and we are forced to jump to the first millennium BCE for our story to begin.

The organic end of the ethanol molecule, consisting of carbon and hydrogen, mixes well with plant materials, which are also organic. The alcohol end of the ethanol molecule, consisting of oxygen and hydrogen, mixes well with water, which also contains oxygen and hydrogen, in the familiar ratio H2O. Organic materials mixed with the ethanol could be made into aqueous solutions, and the extracts so obtained could have been stored, as today, in solid, liquid, or powdered form. The physician also used vegetable oils and animal fats as extractants and salves.

This set the tone for future Greek schools of thought: explanations for natural phenomena based on observational reasoning rather than transcendental inspiration. Following Thales, his pupil Anaximander (in the mid-500s BCE), proposed that the basic material of all things was something he called apeiron. Anaximander did not have an exact description for the material, but he claimed that worlds formed and disappeared as bubbles in this apeiron. He theorized that our solar system came into being when a mass of apeiron broke away from the infinite in a rotary motion that caused the heavy materials to concentrate at the center and the edges to condense into the heavenly bodies.
