Civic astronomy : Albany's Dudley Observatory, 1852-2002 by George Wise( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The founding of the Dudley Observatory at Albany, N.Y., in 1852 was a milestone in humanity's age-old quest to understand the heavens. As the best equipped astronomical observatory in the U.S. led by the first American to hold a Ph. D. in astronomy, Benjamin Apthorp Gould Jr., the observatory helped pioneer world-class astronomy in America. It also proclaimed Albany's status as a major national center of culture, knowledge and affluence. This book explores the story of the Dudley Observatory as a 150 year long episode in civic astronomy. The story ranges from a bitter civic controversy to a venture into space, from the banks of the Hudson River to the highlands of Argentina. It is a unique glimpse at a path not taken, a way of doing science once promising, now vanished. As discoveries by the Dudley Observatory's astronomers, especially its second director Lewis Boss, made significant contributions to the modern vision of our Milky Way galaxy as a rotating spiral of more than a million stars, the advance of astronomy left that little observatory behind

Exploring engineering : an introduction for freshman [i.e. freshmen] to engineering and to the design process by P. G Kosky( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Engineers solve problems, and work on emerging challenges in a wide range of areas important to improving quality of life; areas like sustainable energy, access to clean water, and improved communications and health care technologies. Kosky et. al. explore the world of engineering by introducing the reader to what engineers do, the fundamental principles that form the basis of their work, and how they apply that knowledge within a structured design process. The three part organization of the text reinforces these areas, making this an ideal introduction for anyone interested in exploring the various fields of engineering and learning how engineers work to solve problems. NEW: Additional discussions on what engineers do, and the distinctions among engineers, technicians, and managers (Chapter 1) NEW: Re-organized and updated chapters in Part II to more closely align with specific engineering disciplines NEW: New chapters on emerging fields of engineering, including Bioengineering and Green Energy Engineering NEW: Discussions of Design for Six Sigma integrated into Part III on the design process An Engineering Ethics Decision Matrix is introduced in Chapter 1 and used throughout the book to pose ethical challenges and explore ethical decision-making in an engineering context Lists of "Top Engineering Achievements" and "Top Engineering Challenges" help put the material in context and show engineering as a vibrant discipline involved in solving societal problems

Oral history interview with H. M. Mott-Smith by Harold Meade Mott-Smith( )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deals mainly with his career at General Electric Company in Schenectady, NY. Early interest in science leads to first (summer) job at age 15, with Irving Langmuir at G.E.; comments on Langmuir's work. Undergraduate studies at Cornell University interupted by military service, 1918; switches from chemistry to physics at Cornell in 1919. Returns to G.E. in 1921; collaborations with Langmuir on, among other work, mercury arc rectifiers (plasma), space charge equations (leading to a Langmuir patent for the thyratron) hydrogen-welding (R. W. Wood). Comments on Langmuir as a scientist and as a co-worker (Katie Blodgett); ideas far ahead of his time: the linear acelerator, the neutron. Comments on Whitney as head of the Lab and on other members of the staff, such as Coolidge (who succeeded Whitney as Head), John Payne and Dewey Simonds (vacuum tube work). Work atmosphere at G.E.; outside activities. Leaves G.E. for Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule, Zurich, in pursuit of doctoral degree

Oral history interview with Charles E. Reed by Charles E Reed( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Charles Reed begins the interview with a discussion of his family background and early education. Reed grew up in Findlay, Ohio, and credits his high school teachers with fostering his interest in the sciences. He attended Case School of Applied Science, earning his B.S. in chemistry in 1934. At Case, he was influenced greatly by Professor Carl Prutton, and Reed decided to continue on to graduate school. There, Reed wanted to pursue both chemistry and chemical engineering, and he combined his interests at MIT, where he earned his D. Sc. in chemical engineering in 1937. His thesis focused on colloid chemistry, which led to his later fascination with polymer chemistry. Upon receiving his doctorate, Reed became an assistant professor at MIT. While there, he also began to consult for various companies. In 1942, he accepted a permanent position with General Electric Company, where he spent the rest of his career. His first work involved organosilicon polymers and the scaling up of processes. When G.E. decided to set up a chemical engineering department, Reed was selected as the manager. Through the years, Reed gradually moved up the management ladder, becoming senior vice-president of corporate technology in 1971. During his time at G.E., he helped scale up the silicone processes and worked on phenolic laminates, the commercial development of synthetic diamonds, and the development of both polycarbonates and polyphenylene oxide. Reed concludes the interview with his thoughts on the future of G.E. and his experience as a member of one of its Sector Boards
