Inside the Lunar lander.

The Lunar Module was the first manned spacecraft specifically built to deliver men to the Moon.

This two-stage spacecraft was built by the Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation to ferry two astronauts and scientific equipment to the surface of the Moon. The 6.7-metre (22-foot) tall craft had an aluminium frame with titanium fittings and was covered with layers of aluminised Kapton and aluminised Mylar to provide thermal protection against micrometeoroids.

The Apollo Command Module carried it into lunar orbit, and two of the three crew transferred to it and used the descent engine to land on the Moon. After deploying scientific

Modern materials — flooring — is a composition of four layers. Each performs a strictly defined function. The lower, the core layer is most often made of pine or spruce plywood. Perpendicular to the fibers is an average, the stabilizing layer made of the multilayer timber, or glulam softwood fiber board of high density. Perpendicular layer provides strength and stability of wood flooring, as well as its high resistance to changes in temperature and humidity. The middle layer of specially arranged grooves and ridges or interlocking connection. With their help, strips collected into a single unit.

The direction of the fibers of the upper, active layer, or a shirt, perpendicular and parallel to the lower average. This layer gredstavlyaet a veneer thickness of about 0.5 mm or strip (lamellae) 2,2-6 mm thick, made of more expensive types of wood: oak, ash, beech, cherry, pear, maple and so on. N. The harder wood the longer it resists wear. To describe the degree of hardness using the Brinell scale. In accordance with it the durability of oak can be characterized indirectly numbers 2,9-3,7. But the most lasting is exotic wood Jatoba, whose hardness is in the range 7-7,7.

INSIDE MOUSEY

How a mild-mannered computer mouse becomes a fast, freewheeling photon-hog.

Analog (non-optical) mice pick up movements of the ball with two axles that turn gear-like wheels. The teeth rotate between IR emitters and recep¬tors that capture the flickering shadows to read horizontal and vertical directions and speeds. Reverse-biasing the diode emitters turnsthem into Mousey’s “eyes.”

Mousey’s bumper (from one of its buttons) empties a capacitor-full of current across a relay, temporarily crossing the motors’volt¬ages and throwing Mousey into reverse.

Randy Sargent’s Herbie (below) was the first LM386-based bot. It finished last in the 1996 Robothon’s line-following race, but went on
