I propose to analyze “Talking About Science.”. How is it best done? Why is it that a subject presented by A is a thrilling account which leaves a deep impression, whereas the very same material presented by B is dull and boring and produces no impression whatever? How should we present our branch of science to fellow scientists who work in quite another field? How can we present science to those who have little or no scientific background, as is often the case with men of high ability who are important in affairs of state? How can we make the nonscientist understand why the study of science means so much to us, a passion they sometimes find very difficult to under-stand? The gap between C.P. Snow`s two cultures in not so much due to a lack of understanding as to a lack of desire to understand. There are philistines as regards science as well as regards the arts....

This guide decomposes the technical study process in to two stages: Work definition and Work Execution. Work Definition is composed of customer tasking, prior work evaluation study guide preparation, work tasking. The study guide preparation activities focus on understanding the problem and restating the customer`s tasking in a manner that can be demonstrably answered by the technical study. The work planning and work tasking activities translate the study guide into specific work assignments for the different members of the study team…

Consider a two-dimensional Cartesian coordinate scheme 0xy, and a channel bounded by the walls y = 0 and y = -h. Assume that there is a continuous body (representing a ship cross section) immersed in the channel of form y = Y(x), as in Fig. 1, such that the flow in the channel can only pass underneath the body. Without the presence of the body, the complex potential for the flow in the channel could have been expressed in the form φ = V( x +C0 ) say, where C0 is constant throughout the channel. When the body is immersed, the flow is locally affected, but in the limits x ~ ± ∞ the flow retains its channel characteristics….

Donald Blount is recognized around the world for his contributions to high-speed marine vehicles of various types for more than 50 years. A highlight of his career has been the revolutionary high-speed craft, DESTRIERO, which holds the combined east- and west-bound Atlantic crossing elapsed time record and the fastest east-bound crossing record for which its development history has been presented in numerous forums. An in-depth look at his career beyond this singular achievement will be shared in honor of his numerous contributions to the marine industry during his lifetime of bringing science and technology to the waterfront…
