#21 - "Tooth and Gear"

#22 was the Green Revolution - and that is just what Milt, Elaine, Mike, Peyton, Joani, and Michelle thought.

"Tooth and Gear"

Not exactly sure what these teeth were supposed to be driving but they looked impressive! The original color of the machine had been invaded by someone trying to cover over the orange. These beasts of construction were the kings of the site. This shot comes to via the Haul of Fame.

Greatest Inventions of All Time!
Recently I came across an article about the greatest inventions as determined by a large group of scientists, philosophers, educators, and other professions. Their task was to create a list of "the Greatest Inventions of All Time." Conveniently, the final list numbered fifty! so, I'm starting with #50 and working my way down to Numero Uno in December.

Fear not as I will offer you some hints as to what the invention was.

Gave humans new power for destruction and creation. . .

#21 is either a reaction or a decay process in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts. The process often produces free neutrons and game protons and releases a very large amount of energy even by the energetic standards of radioactive decay.

This process of heavy elements was discovered on December 17, 1938 by German Otto Hahn and his assistant Fritz Strassmann, and explained theoretically in January 1939. 

I realize these clues are not very helpful so if you still need help, go to the bottom of this week's blog for multiple choices. . .
