A Calculator To Reach For The Stars
Check out this GE space propulsion calculator. It’s a two-faced circular slide rule that was produced by the company’s Flight Propulsion Laboratory in Cincinnati.
We don’t know when it was made, but the front calculator let a user dial in or solve for beam power, propellant consumption, specific impulse, exhaust velocity or thrust. In that last variable, the engineer had a choice of ion, magnetohydrodynamic, plasma jet, chemical or nuclear propulsion.
The back allowed the user to solve for planetary data like satellite orbital and escape velocities, gravitational pull and revolution period. Instructions and a diagram of the solar system came on a sleeve that held the calculator.
We found these in the International Slide Rule Museum, which says it’s the world’s largest free digital repository of all things concerning slide rules and other math artifacts. Go check them out, they have lots of interesting objects.
The easiest way to create some eye-catching content, easy to understand and highly shareable is by means of infographics. Everyone is using them – from top-managers to business owners and even college students.
It’s a great way to show some stats or ideas, but not so great when it comes to designing them. The downside is that it takes a lot of time and patience creating one from scratch, and not so many options to choose from on the web.
That’s why we’ve prepared another super premium set of design goodies for you to use in your works.
You will get:
- Thousands of graphs, charts, diagrams, icons and other elements divided in 11 of the most used categories in the world such as: travel, financial, medical, communication, industrial, etc.
- Editable .Ai and .EPS files.
- All elements can be easily customized and are perfect for both beginners and pros.
- An extended, multi use license, allowing you to use them in an unlimited number of personal or commercial projects.

This is the kind of deal you shouldn’t mis. Get it now!
Apple is currently testing versions of iOS 7 internally that include the AirDrop WiFi-direct file sharing tool from the Mac, according to people familiar with the software. Like with the Flickr and Vimeo integration that we previously reported on, it is very simple for Apple to remove any single feature from the new operating system ahead of the mid-June unveiling.
Additionally, Apple has scrapped AirDrop late in software development from iOS before. Last year, we reported that Apple was developing an AirDrop tool to take advantage of the new WiFi hardware inside of Apple’s latest iOS devices. Because Apple has postponed the feature before, we believe it is possible that the feature could be pushed back again…
Sources say that the AirDrop functionality is currently integrated into the standard iOS share menu. AirDrop will work between two iOS devices and potentially between an iOS device and a Mac. The feature will make it easier than ever to transfer, for example, a photograph or document from one person’s iPhone to another person’s iPad.
While iCloud synchronization works well for sharing photos and documents between two iOS devices owned by the same person, the AirDrop feature will allow seamless individual file exchanges between iOS devices belonging to different people. Apple launched this functionality between Mac computers in 2011 with OS X Lion.
Notably, this potential addition will increase feature parity between Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android operating systems. Android has included peer-to-peer file sharing for multiple releases of the software, but the implementation can be confusing due to fragmentation. For example, Samsung has its own unique fork of peer-to-peer file sharing while Google’s stock Android builds include its own implementation. AirDrop for iOS will be seamless in that it will work the same way on all of Apple’s supported products.
