Have a Precious New Year!

Precious

“Radar Won the war, the bomb ended it.”

“During the fall of 1940, Edward “Taffy” Bowen, considered one of Britain’s top defense pioneers, traveled to Washington, D.C., in a covert operation known as the Tizard Mission. His goal: to convice the U.S. government to assist in the development of a highly classified technological device Britain considered its most closely guarded secret—the resonate cavity magnetron. With this new device, aircraft would be able to distinguish rising U-boat periscopes from waves on the darkest of nights, or identify enemy aircraft through heavy cloud cover–vital components to winning the war.”

Murderers

That is a weird way to start the new year…
