Robert Goddard’s Rocket After Flight
Image by NASA on The Commons
Dr. Robert H. Goddard’s rocket after flight in New Mexico on April 19, 1932. Those carrying the rocket are (left to right): Nils Ljungquist, machinist; most likely Charles Mansur, welder; Goddard’s brother-in-law and machinist Albert Kisk; and Goddard. The rocket had new guiding vanes controlled by a gyroscope which helped stabilization. In 1930, with a grant from the Guggenheim Foundation, Goddard and his crew moved from Massachusetts to Roswell, New Mexico, to conduct research and perform test flights away from the public eye. This rocket was one of many that he launched in Roswell from 1930-1932 and from 1934-1941. Dr. Goddard has been recognized as the father of American rocketry and as one of the pioneers in the theoretical exploration of space. His dream was the conquest of the upper atmosphere and ultimately space through the use of rocket propulsion. When the United States began to prepare for the conquest of space in the 1950’s, American rocket scientists began to recognize the debt owed to the New England professor. They discovered that it was virtually impossible to construct a rocket or launch a satellite without acknowledging the work of Dr. Goddard.

Butthey had peculiar customs and manners; andalthough they were willing to buy as much asthe French traders had to sell, they could notbe prevailed upon to pay their bills: A pirateis not generally the sort of man who cares topay his bills.

Ottoman Public Debt Administration, Istanbul

Osmanlı Devleti’nin dış borçlarını yönetmek amacıyla 1881’de kurulan Düyûn-ı Umûmiye İdaresi ilk olarak İstanbul, Bahçekapı’da bulunan Köprülü Han’da faaliyet gösterdi. Bir süre sonra hanın kapasitesinin yetersiz kalması nedeniyle kurum, mimar Alexandre Vallaury’ye Cağaloğlu’nda yaptırılan görkemli bir binaya taşındı. Dönemin mimarlık eğilimlerine uygun olarak Birinci Ulusal Mimarlık üslubunda tasarlanan bina, Düyûn-ı Umûmiye’nin yetkilerinin kaldırılması üzerine bir dönem boş kaldı. 1933’te Mustafa Kemal Atatürk’ün emriyle İstanbul Lisesi’nin kullanımına verildi. İstanbul Lisesi hâlen aynı binada eğitim-öğretime devam etmektedir.
