    Spurred on by President John F. Kennedy's 1961 speech, which challenged America to place a man on the Moon before the end of the decade, NASA and its industrial contractors succeeded in doing so in July 1969. Delivering three astronauts to the vicinity of the Moon was challenge enough in those early days of the Space Age, but landing a crew on the lunar surface, supporting their science and explor...

    As a note to an original presentation ("Modified nodal analysis: an essential addition to electrical circuit theory and analysis", see ibid., vol.11, no.3, p.84-92, 2002), this paper adds a further, final comment on the efficacy of modified nodal analysis (MNA) in handling multi-phase, coupled impedance networks typical of which are multi-conductor transmission lines and cables in which the electr...

    Whereas the 19th century was the century of the steam engine and the 20th century was the century of the internal combustion engine, it is likely that the 21st century will be the century of the fuel cell. Full cells are now on the verge of being introduced commercially, revolutionising the way we presently produce power. Fuel cells can use hydrogen as a fuel, offering the prospect of supplying th...

  • Clean-up time! PCB-filled transformers: environmental threat and commercial opportunity

    Publication Year: 2002 , Page(s): 227 - 230

    Transformer oils based on polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were widely used in industry up until the late 1970s, when it became apparent that PCBs build up in the environment and have the potential to be harmful. Bans on their use followed, so that many owners of electrical equipment containing PCBs face the immense task of replacing their units in time to meet national deadlines for phasing out t...

  • Early X-ray equipment: a view from the South

    Publication Year: 2002 , Page(s): 231 - 242
    Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (948 KB)  

    The history of X-ray equipment starts at about the same time as Marconi's work on wireless telegraphy and is interwoven with the development of the thermionic valve and filament lamps. This article starts with brief biographical notes on its discoverer, W. C. Rontgen, followed by accounts of its early use, particularly during the South African War (1899-1902). It traces the early evolution of X-ra... View full abstract»

  • Electricity: a sideways look

    Publication Year: 2002 , Page(s): 243 - 247

    From ancient times electricity in its various manifestations has been a subject of myth, mysticism and misunderstanding. Now comprehended by science, controlled and applied by engineers (if sometimes misused), its emergence in literature as a metaphor for vital attributes continues. View full abstract»
