First topic message reminder :

May's Photo Challenge

This is our third month of challenges. This month is simply entitled 'Close Up'. You can interpret this in any way you want, this can include macro, but anything close is good. Pictures don't need to be underwater, this is open to our none diving friends too.

The rules are the same, one entry per day, no wider than 640pix and remember we are a family site!



This one was taken out in Cala Blanca at the dive centre as it landed on the whiteboard!

When you say taking apart, do you mean the objects or your garage. Because I do not believe you can see more than 6ft in your office until you meet a very dense pile of outdoor related objects.

I believe that one is the inside of cylinder head arrangement. One is a wierd angle of a dive knife on a shiny surface (you can see the serrations). The allan key thingy looks a bit like the top of a mountain bike headset. No idea what BDM is, but isn't it something rude!!!!

Tidy the garage - don't swear at me.... and I can see more than 6 feet, might on be vertical but I can!

I didn't say I could see them, I just said they were taken from approx 6 feet of my chair. AND they are all dive related. All I will say is Mr Dobbs as a couple almost nearly correct, well one is spot on at least, the other si right, but I need more

The first person that got fed up with getting wet?

All joking apart I don't know the guys name but he worked for NASA if that is the answer you are looking for. As what we know as a dry zip was originally invented for pressure suits as they're able to stabilise a pressurised air even in a partial vaccuum.

NASA did not develop the suit zipper but commissioned it to be made!

BY BDM...In 1958 NASA commissioned
the manufacture of the 6 Pitch for the
Mercury and Gemini programmes.
When confidence in their suit systems had been achieved,
and the suit designs evolved, the Medium Duty zipper went
to the moon in the Apollo systems. We
are currently involved in the next generation of "off-world" clothing
for space tourists.

Bercovitz
- the owner of the UK engineering companies involved
(Swiss Canadian)
Doelter - the machinery
designer (German Rocket Engineer)
Mulka - the zipper
designer and owner of the world patent (German Engineer)

Mr Bercovitz
was
an industrialist who employed Dr Doelter to lead
a team to develop the mass production of a zipper
designed
by Mr Mulka

So you have the B-D-M zipper, with a history going back to
1952. The name commemorates 3 men who struggled against great odds
to make a sealed zipper.
