The Rocket Girls were created as human calculators to support scientists as part of the American space programme. They differed from their colleagues not only in terms of their gender, but also their skin colour – not exactly a minor issue in the USA of the 1950s. Nevertheless, women like Katherine Johnson managed to have impressive careers.

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality in manufacturing and industry

Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are currently in the process of creating permanent change to industrial development, production, and operational processes: from design development in the automotive sector, through to virtual representations of aircraft engines and investigating the effects of clashes during mechanical engineering, AR and VR offer seemingly limitless possibilities. The advantages are obvious: processes can be made more efficient, designs optimised well in advance of development, and complex machines can be maintained more intelligently.

Additive Layer Manufacturing: A Revolution in 3D

3D printers have triggered a new industrial revolution, enabling companies to manufacture complex components more easily and at a lower cost than ever before. At the same time, the process opens up new options for lightweight construction techniques. Car manufacturers, Formula 1, and many other sectors are already making use of this technology, and in the aviation industry, entire engine parts and fuselage sections are made by 3D printing.
