The National Archives’ Cartographic Branch holds ship engineering drawings for a majority of vessels commissioned by the United States Navy dating from the 1790s through the Korean War era.These drawings mostly consist of inboard and outboard profiles, deck plans, and sections, although additional general arrangement drawings exist for some ships.Record Group 19: Records of the Bureau of Ships, 1940 - 1966 The majority of ship plans held by the Cartographic Branch can be found within Record Group (RG) 19.Established in 1940, the Bureau of Ships was responsible for the construction and maintenance of the ships of the US Navy.The Bureau of Ships absorbed the previous Bureau of Engineering and the Bureau of Construction & Repair, so this record group also includes many ship plans dating earlier than 1940.Includes bibliographical references (pages 351-362) and index Introducton: Engineering the Elements -- Ch. How It All Fits Together: The architecture of molecules -- Ch. Bringing Down the Barriers: Getting chemical reactions to go -- Ch. Philip Bail, an editor for the prestigious magazine Nature, lets the lay reader into the world of modern chemistry Here chemists make molecules dance to laser light and they find new uses for the improbable buckminsterfullerene molecules - 60-atom carbon soccerballs, dubbed "buckyballs"--Which seem to have applications for everything from lubrication to medicine to electronics The book is not intended as an introduction to chemistry, but as an accessible survey of recent developments throughout many of the major fields allied with chemistry: from research in traditional areas such as crystallography and spectroscopy to entirely new fields of study such as molecular electronics, artificial enzymes, and "smart" polymer gels Advances in molecular design and control are allowing chemists to perform engineering at the molecular scale - a burgeoning field known as nanotechnology - as well as to slice selected molecular bonds with lasers, devise molecular magnets and lightweight plastic batteries, and to envision truly "micro" computers whose circuits will be constructed from individual molecules Ball invites readers to look behind the headlines of scientific breakthroughs for a deeper understanding of the unfolding world of research and experimental chemistry. Chemists have created super-conducting ceramics for brain scanners, designed liquid crystal flat screens for televisions and watch displays, and made fabrics that change color while you wear them They have fashioned metals from plastics, drugs from crude oil, and have pinpointed the chemical pollutants affecting our atmosphere and are now searching for remedies for the imperiled planet.
