More > questions, questions which, for the writer as an engineer, needed answers. Fundamentally the question was how the conclusion that office fires were responsible for the building’s collapse was reached, when: - No one apparently witnessed burning debris entering WTC7 floors through its windows. - Fires didn’t burn long enough and hot enough for the integrity of steelwork to be compromised. - Steelwork debris was not analysed to determine temperatures reached because it was disposed of prematurely. - No-one witnessed the collapse initiating event and subsequent progression of collapse (no-one, unsurprisingly, was inside the building at the time) yet detailed conclusions were drawn as to the sequence of structural failure events that lead to total collapse and was therefore due to office fires.< Less

Former Brexit minister and MP, David Jones, has criticised the EU for threatening to kick Britain off the Galileo satellite programme after Brexit, in spite its £1bn contribution.... More > Notwithstanding advanced plans for a rocket by new company, Skyrora, to launch a satellite, this will effectively leave the UK ‘out of space’. In 1960 the Conservative government cancelled the mid-range Blue Streak rocket, and in 1971 cancelled the smaller Black Arrow rocket although it had successfully launched Prospero, a 100kg satellite, into orbit. It had been ‘kept alive’ by PM Wilson through the 1960s in the expectation of becoming a big contender for space work in the future. The demise of Black Arrow has been shrouded in mystery, but this booklet resulting from exhaustive research, reveals the truth – for PM Edward Heath, Black Arrow was a bargaining chip to get President Pompidou to remove France’s veto over joining the Common Market and leaving the French Ariane programme without its British rival.< Less

More > Abraham’s 12 year old daughter Madeleine, but he was soon off on a great adventure. In 1654 Nicolas arrived in Montreal, teaming up with Des Grosseilliers, who, with Pierre Radisson, were joint founders of the great Hudson Bay Company. That summer they set off together, travelling by land and the river systems, to the western wilderness and Great Lakes region, in search of adventure and wealth. Two years later, in 1656, being given up for lost, there was great jubilation when they returned to Quebec with 50 canoe loads of furs. Furs were the mainstay of the fragile economy, but resistance to incursion from ferocious Iroquoi tribes-people had caused a virtual halt in trading, and the colony’s future was in doubt. So their great success was viewed as the salvation of New France, at least for the immediate future.< Less
