Have a Precious New Year!
“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.”
That is a weird way to start the new year…
