Canadian Aerospace History - continued from Netletter nr 47 - supplied by Vesta In order to develop the capabilities of its space industry, Canada undertook in the mid-1970s to provide a Remote Manipulator Arm (CANADARM) for the US space shuttle. The arm was successfully deployed during the second flight of the space shuttle Columbia in 1981, and gained world recognition for the technological capability of Spar Aerospace and the NRC. The Modern Industry has a hierarchy of 3 tiers of capabilities and products. In the first tier are the principal companies with integrated design and production capability for complete aircraft and engines. The second-tier companies manufacture components and subsystems for the principal companies in Canada and abroad. The third tier comprises machine shops, heat treatment shops, foundries, forges and other companies whose business is predominantly the aerospace industry. All aerospace companies must ensure a very high quality and reliability of products, and as a result the companies have a high cost structure specific to aerospace. They tend not to serve general markets, other than nuclear engineering, which has somewhat similar quality and reliability demands. -=o0o=- .

John Dahlgren sends us the following - The World According to Student Bloopers By Richard Lederer St. Paul's School One of the fringe benefits of being an English or History teacher is receiving the occasional jewel of a student blooper in an essay. I have pasted together the following "history" of the world from certifiably genuine student bloopers collected by teachers throughout the United States, from eighth grade through college level. Read carefully, and you will learn a lot. The inhabitants of ancient Egypt were called mummies. They lived in the Sarah Dessert and traveled by Camelot. The climate of the Sarah is such that the inhabitants have to live elsewhere, so certain areas of the dessert are cultivated by irritation. The Egyptians built the Pyramids in the shape of a huge triangular cube. The Pramids are a range of mountains between France and Spain. The Bible is full of interesting caricatures. In the first book of the Bible, Guinesses, Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. One of their children, Cain, once asked, "Am I my brother's son?" God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac on Mount Montezuma. Jacob, son of Isaac, stole his brother's birth mark. Jacob was a patriarch who brought up his twelve sons to be patriarchs, but they did not take to it. One of Jacob's sons, Joseph, gave refuse to the Israelites. Pharaoh forced the Hebrew slaves to make bread without straw. Moses led them to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread, which is bread made without any ingredients. Afterwards, Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandments. David was a Hebrew king skilled at playing the liar. He fought with the Philatelists, a race of people who lived in Biblical times. Solomon, one of David's sons, had 500 wives and 500 porcupines.
