Pilot Joe Walker and the X-1A, California, USA, 1955. Cowboy Joe (NACA High-Speed Flight Station test pilot Joseph Walker) and his steed (Bell Aircraft Corporation X-1A). A happy Joe was photographed at Edwards Air Force Base. The X-1A was flown six times by Bell Aircraft Company pilot Jean "Skip" Ziegler in 1953. Air Force test pilots Major Charles "Chuck" Yeager and Major Arthur "Kit" Murray made 18 flights between November 21, 1953 and August 26, 1954. The X-1A was then turned over to the NACA. Joe Walker piloted the first NACA flight on July 20, 1955. Walker attemped a second flight on August 8, 1955, but an explosion damaged the aircraft just before launch.

Professor Tyndall, 1864, (1946). Creator: George Richmond

Professor Tyndall, 1864, (1946). Portrait of Professor John Tyndall (1820-1893), Irish-born physicist and mountaineer. Tyndall was appointed Professor of Natural Philosophy at the Royal Institution, London, in 1854 and became President of British Association for the Advancement of Science in 1874. Some of his most notable work was carried out in the fields of heat radiation and acoustics. A keen mountaineer, he combined the pastime with studies of glacial motion in the Swiss Alps. Towards the end of his life Tyndall's health was poor and he died in 1893 from an accidental overdose of chloral hydrate, an imsomnia cure widely misused in the late 19th century. From "British Mountaineers", by F. S. Smythe. [Collins, London, 1946]
