The Astronic Nighthawk

Post by koimaster » July 10th 2021, 10:42pm

In 1964, Pyotr Ufimtsev, a Soviet mathematician, showed that the strength of the radar return from an object is related to its edge configuration rather than its size, considering a certain angle of edge and shape together with gravity; the legendary Stealth F-117 Nighthawk was developed by DARPA of the U.S. Department of Defense in 1974 to challenge both radar signals and gravity. In 1801, French-Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet invented the tourbillon to challenge the effect of gravity on a timepiece. Both the Nighthawk and the tourbillon represent the ideal combination of precise technology, engineering and mechanics.

Maybe that is why it is named Astronic.

Ive known a few girls like that.
