Even though most did not think of Benjamin Franklin as a mathematician he truly did have a love for numbers. Adding on to Franklin's love for numbers, was his love for science and inventing. Franklin was not only known for science but also establishing many buildings and starting a very lucrative printing business. Benjamin Franklin was an influential founding father that went to great lengths to try and make himself smarter each
First, the Allies found German spies and told them false information to report. Then, the Allies created a phantom fighting force and gave false information via radio, which they knew the Germans were eavesdropping on. The Allied code-breakers could decipher Germany’s communications, and that is when the Allies knew that their hoax had been a success. Because of this planning, the Allies were well on their way towards victory by the time Germans realized what
If you were given the chance to get surgery to triple your I.Q would you? Well a man named Charlie Gordon took that chance in the science fiction book “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes. Charlie Gordon wanted to be smart like everyone else he only had an I.Q of 68 but all that was about to change. So when he got the chance to triple his own I.Q he took it. Charlie Gordon made a great choice taking the surgery for A.I (Artificial Intelligence) he had rapid progression, had more feelings and his I.Q tripled.
The creation of their own nuclear arsenal allowed Russia to have more leverage when it came to negotiations with the US. This shift started the arms race between the US and Soviet union because previously the US had the only nuclear weapons in the world. This arms race ultimately ended with the Tsar Bomba being detonated as the last show of power from the Soviets. This started the idea of mutually assured destruction and prevented the US from dropping more atomic bombs on other countries. Without the infiltration of spies and KGB operatives in the US manhattan project the speed with which nuclear weapons were made couldn't have been achieved by the Soviet Union.
What do you think is brighter than a thousand suns? Robert J. Oppenheimer is the genius who created the atomic bomb, better known by the slang name: Nuke. Oppenheimer was patriotic and wanted the United States to win World War II. His secret creation was called the Manhattan Project, and it changed the outcome of the war. Though the atomic bomb was successful in winning the war, it’s destructive power destroyed it’s creator.
Thus, Hitler uses his advanced technology to execute his plan on Poland. In preparation, Hitler created the Luftwaffe, or the German Air Force, a newly-developed air force which sees its use first during the Poland Blitzkrieg. According to Modern World History, after deploying the quick aircraft and tanks on Poland on September 1, 1939, Germany successfully wiped out Poland in a month. Shocked, Britain and France together formed the Allied powers and declared war on Germany in September 3, 1939. However, they had to quickly develop new offensive and defensive weapons in order to stop Hitler’s devastating forces.
One of the largest threats to the Allies was an attack on their ship convoys, Putting a huge emphasis on getting Enigma broken. If the Allies could locate in advance where German u-boats would be, they could direct their ships, transporting critical supplies from North America away from the German u-boats. The British soon got ahold of one of the Enigma machines when Commander
Furthermore, this program allowed the British to gain information from the Germans. In the book The Double-Cross System by J.C. Masterman, who himself played a large role in the British MI6, he says, “by means of the double-agent system we actively ran and controlled the German espionage system in this country” (Masterman, Page XI). As can be seen, the British were somewhat arrogant when it came to their intelligence gathering, and in result of that there were times that German agents double crossed them. In spite of that, the British did have a very effective intelligence agency, and their greatest feat was breaking German ciphers on the Enigma machine, which sent out German diplomatic and military communications. After cracking the Enigma machine’s codes, the British were able to use the information that the Germans were sending amongst one another to their advantage, and it helped them to win the war.
The computer is the most wonderful gift of science to the modern man. In this age of science and technology, humanity is witnessing an explosion of knowledge (Lyons, n.d.). Computer a machine that promises to beat man in various fields is one the latest useful inventions word today. The computer can do all the works of man.
The Imitation Game is about a British team of top-secret cryptanalysts who need to break Enigma, a German code machine that rewires it self-daily and stores all of the German’s battle information in World War two. The group leader is Alan Turing, who plans to build a machine to destroy Enigma and win the war for Britain. Both The Imitation Game and The Children of Men share a strong connection. A plot connection from both texts is that they both have to save the world from disaster. In the Imitation Game, Alan and his group have to break Enigma and save Britain from the German invasion.
Codebreakers of World War II By. Kelsey Stiverson P.2 The Codebreakers of World War II were a vital part of the defeat of Hitler and the Nazis during the war. For the most part all code breaking was done at Bletchley Park located in England. Here, they were able to crack German Enigma machines codes.
Initially, we began researching the Enigma code and the creation of the Enigma machine. After we began researching, we found Alan Turing, the codebreaker of Enigma, captured our interest because of his untimely demise and unfinished work. Alan Turing was someone that we felt touched many of today 's discussions and was still relevant, such as his work on the the Turing machine, his Turing test, and his biological pattern recognition. We researched Alan Turing and the vast amount of achievements and accomplishments he attained throughout his career. We read several of his biographies, his notes, and his records.
They mention the agency’s new wiretapping program and the constant suspicion that the agency is hiding something. The “FBI Encyclopedia” and “NSA wiretapping program” explains the suspicion on the NSA since World War II to the present day twenty- first century, while “Rep. Ellison Statement on Allegations of NSA Spying on Muslim-Americans” talks about how the NSA spies on Muslim-Americans when there was no wrong doing. This article uses the position of other nations/ races and how they are affected through these programs. However, all three articles come to a conclusion to make points about the National Security Agency being sneaky with something and their actions going beyond their
During the Red Scare three groups of people were monitored which were Scientist, people who worked in the government, and in Education. Scientists were monitored because they could share information of nuclear weapons with the USSR. In fact, two people did tell the USSR how to make atomic weapons, and they go executed. The Government was also being monitored because they could share military information with the USSR.
