    I watched a BBC documentary detailing how Russians took german rocket engineers from Berlin to Moscow and forced them to transfer the technology. Later, the russian engineers like Korolev took over and built stronger russian rockets which are to this day superior to the american rocket engines.

    Here is him in 1955 explaining the entire project sxb. This guy was ahead of his time. Also, he is quoted as saying : "I keep aiming at the stars but keep hitting London" :ftw9nwa::ftw9nwa:

    Apparently, he used Hitler and America to achieve his dreams. His aim was to the stars growing up and did all he could to achieve that dream including working for the Nazis. He chose to surrender to the Americans with his blueprints hoping they would treat him better and the fact that America was a racist Country anyway. Hitler himself saw America as a good example for its two system, one for the whites and one for the nonwhites. He had fans including Henry Ford, the founder of the Ford cars. All german scientists were granted citizenship and the US state department hid majority of the files collected on nazi officers in world war2 at the UN. They stole the documents so german officers would go free for lack of evidence. The government blamed rogue state deprtment workers who were sympatheitc to the Nazis.

    Wallahi I had to laugh at the inticrate details of the miniature models and rockets and the high level of confidence with which he layed out his plan.
    You can see he had 100% conviction that his blueprints would work out :win:
    The video production seems ahead of its time, almost had a star wars feeling to it. :dwill:
    We need a Somali version of this!

    They may have remastered the film bro.

    Braun's conviction came from proven methods based on Isaac Newton's theories. If Von wavered, he knew he had no chance to get the funding he needed. The US army had its own program, so it was competition.

    Yeah it is really convoluted how some sympathizers were persecuted while perpetrators could somehow escape or even be prominent social, political and scientific figures. Weird..
    But I can fathom that von Braun was not really a full-fledged Nazi
    I see, brother. He knew his stuff, no doubt about that. I just found the sum of his accent, the overly detailed models and his delivery somewhat comedic, not making fun of his ideas.
    Imagine if his rotating space station with the artificial gravity was orbiting the earth instead of the ISS :banderas:

    Along those lines of chemistry and the talk of condensation and vaporization which started all these conversations, we use an array of gases for work.

    SF6 - Sulfur Hexafluoride. In industry, this gas is used for insulation of high voltage wires, switches and transfomers. This gas has an interesting property, so read up on it if you are a science junky and love chemistry.

    CF4 - TetraFluoromethane. It has many uses. Refrigerant. We use it for dissolving organic materials in the production of some devices.

    NH3 - Ammonia. We use it for cleaning some material in the device making for its chemical properties..

    GaAS: Gallium Arsenide for making solar cells and other devices at experimental level.

    Do you think in our life time , in the next 30-40 years humans will land on Mars?

    I can't tell, tbh. Am not really familiar with what the limitations are.
    A google search yielded this, not sure if it is accurate:
    -we don't have powerful enough engines to launch rockets that can carry all the fuel, supplies etc. needed
    -price too high for a single national economy to shoulder
    - unpredictable physiological and psychological strain on the astronauts considering a ca. 8 months long journey
    I picked only a few considerations made in this article
    https://spacecentre.co.uk/blog-post/arent-mars-yet/

    What do you think? It would be awesome to witness the Mars-landing, ngl! :denzelnigga:

    I have read the same things you have most likely on this issue saxib. Limitations on fuel technology and detriments to human health are the main factors for which the trip seems impossible now. There are many unknowns when it comes to health in outer space and danger lurks around as soon as people leave Earth's orbit.

    It reminds me how Allah told mankind and the demons they can travel and ascend to the heavens if they wanted to but wouldn't reach beyond certain limits without extra ordinary power.

    The more science progresses, the more we learn earth and its protective space are meant to support life without troubles. The sheer amount of energy, supplies and effort required to go to the closest planet explains all.

    btw, Wiilyam Ina Sheekh Zubeer,

    Germany is at the top in engineering designs. If education is free unlike the US, you should try to study something worth while. Americans have respect for german engineering.

    Sorry for the late reply and long text. Had to type up bits and pieces whenever I had time and this rambling is the result of my "ruminations" :dead:

    "O company of jinn and mankind, if you are able to pass beyond the regions of the heavens and the earth, then pass. You will not pass except by authority [from Allah]." (55:33)

    Love the above verse that you mentioned and find inspiration in it, because if we interpret it that way, it can be seen as the first time that something like space travel is even deemed to be possible with the limitation that we need the permission, authority or power given by Allah (SWT).
    To put it into context, the first somewhat successful attempt at "aviation" we know of was by the Andalusian scholar Ibn Firnas in the 9th century. Whether the account of his attempt to fly is substantiated or not, it still shows the admirable spirit our predecessors were guided by.
    Hopefully the Muslim ethos of optimism in science and knowledge coupled with the beauty and ethics of our faith will return across the Muslim world, in sha Allah.

    "We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness?" (41:53)

    In the end it should be sufficient for us believers that Allah (SWT) is a witness over all things but it is in our nature that human curiosity will always get the best of our attention and encourage us to focus on a growth in knowledge.
    More so than necessity, curiosity is the essence of what is driving an endeavour like the exploration of space, interestingly enough the Mars rover collecting the samples is also called Curiosity.

    We have to see science in the light of studying the signs that Allah (SWT) has placed in his creation for us to observe, benefit from and be humble.

    Anyway, we as the diaspora can help Somalia by catalysing a shift in mindset towards education and not only through what exactly our professions are.

    Virtually any skill, degree, apprenticeship or vocational training, really any expertise is desperately needed.
    In order to achieve progress, the best course of action is to acquire an applicable skillset and tangible know-how and teach our brothers and sisters back home the beneficial knowledge we acquired, instead of them relying on foreign workers and experts.

    A lot is already happening to that end but we could multiply or even exponentiate the rate at which things are moving forward.
    Think of SYL in the 60s, some of the members were educated in Europe and elsewhere, but apart from that and more importantly they developed a new political culture after the colonial era and generated momentum at the grassroots and look how Somalia became Africa's first democracy.
    Compare that to how many young Somalis are trained and educated in the diaspora. The potential is infinte!
    Today it seems we have too many politicians, when we need more apolitical pioneers, who are willing to sacrifice on behalf of the next generation and teach them what will enable them to become our future leaders.
    That is the plan, in sha Allah and it is the reason why the initiative behind this thread is laudable. :salute:

    The only time I get to truly practise is when I take my Africa sabbaticals

    No grandparents to converse with , they all dead RIp

    You may insult us diaspora Somalis but your country wouldn’t exist without us ! When we master Somali language , the country is ours again lol.

    I got the coffee and boiled eggs breakfast out of the way. Ready for my project per the engineer's request.



    Install this or mount it on an equipment that uses it.

    Rebuild this below and make it work like new since It started making a grinding noise. Bought the repairs from London, Edwards Company.

    In case you are curious about what these machines are and do, they are called pumps. Instead of water or liquid, they pump gas out of a chamber to mimmic space. A confined small chamber that is hooked on to these.

    NASA uses I think these kinds of pumps to some degree to create space-like chamber where astronauts train and float.

    Remember vacuum in space means there is no matter(material stuff is made of). The idea for engineers at my place is to work on something without unwanted "matter" to interact with their work. Except they introduce their own gas they want to use to effect certain outcome and in pure environment.

    Anyways, a quick google for Vacuum in space.

    Hope any casual reader of this learned something new or refreshed their high school physics.

    My degree is interdisciplinary. It covers in studies some of the ME/EE requirements but with extra subjects specific to the two majors it offered. Process engineer or Technician. I did both. It is applied science degree.

    I don't like to interact with people at higher levels and kiss up or snitch on other workers, so I applied work with the technical divisions always at hi-tech companies and work within a group of men each with their own responsibilities. Separate from every group in the plant/company.

    I couldn't have imagined how this would work out years ago but got lucky. Allah is most kind sxb.

    What are these somali words:


    Horaad
    Nugaal
    Halhays


    I need to know waxa loola jeedo. To those who speak classic somali please.


    I heard the first one in a poem I listened to once:


    Horaadka aan wada nuugniyo, naaska hari waayay


    And Nugaal is region of Somalia but never knew what the word meant.

    Halhays, am looking for its equivalent english. Moto? What is the diference between Halyhays and Halqabsi.


    @riyaale @Tameable Qumayo @IftiinOfLife @astorecalledkmart and Ayubi. Share your knowledge.
