Report like a Scientist OR Captivate like a Journalist Posted by Dr. About my blog…The Science Fair has become a competitive sport and well-coached kids increase their odds of success.
Porsche has announced plans to stage a special 'Project: Secret!' exhibit at the Porsche Museum, Stuttgart.
Development started in 1984 and the model was slated to feature a rear-mounted 2.0-litre four-cylinder boxer engine with outputs ranging from 118-148bhp. The 'Project: Secret Exhibition!' will run from September 17, 2014 to January 11, 2015 and will feature fourteen never-built studies, unknown concept cars and camouflaged prototypes. The other car that the company will put up on display during the exhibition include the Concept Car Type 965 which was commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Research and Technology in 1978 and 1979. PorscheSE, or simply Porsche in the common mans tongue, is a German automotive manufacturer and controls approximately 50 percent voting rights in Volkswagen AG. During World War II, the United States had a program of voluntary press censorship, coordinated by the Office of Censorship. Jack Raper, Press columnist, has returned to Cleveland following a vacation in New Mexico, where he found the following story.
If you like mysteries and have a keen desire to solve one, here is your opportunity to do a little sleuthing, and if you succeed in learning anything and then making it public you will satisfy the hot curiosity of several hundred thousand New Mexicans. Of course, this is a free country and you can go where you please — if you are willing to sleep in the smoking car aisle or breathe the exhalations of your fellow sardines packed in a bus.
If you have any idea that you can employ a battery of eminent constitutional lawyers and go into court and that eventually the Supreme Court of the United States will decide the case in your favor if the lower courts decide against you, forget about that, too. Not far away are the Indian villages occupied by the finest kind of Indians, intelligent, industrious, friendly, skilled in the production of art objects, many of them graduates of Indian schools. Shortly after the man who thinks he is going to the mystery city of Los Alamos reaches the level on which it is built, he will see, if he looks into the windshield mirror, a man following him on a motorcycle not many feet behind the car and he will be in the same position when the gate is reached. Then you realize that the owner of this strange city is Uncle Sam and you make no kind of protest and answer questions politely. You will be escorted to the office of the man whom you are to meet, escorted by two jeeps, one in front and one behind your car, men in each jeep armed with rifles. When you transact your business you will be carefully escorted out of the city, taking the same route as when you entered. In support of this there are stories of the experiences of automobile drivers in the vicinity of Los Alamos. If you’d rather see it in the original spread, uploaded here is my copy of it from the archives.
If I were a spy thinking about nuclear weapons, I would find that a pretty interesting combination of things, and worth following up on. The action of the newspaper in printing such an article shows a complete lack of responsibility, compliance with national censorship code and cooperation with the Government in keeping an important project secret. Footnote 12: The explosives heard may be related to the implosion studies, which had begun in the summer of 1943. Or they might be related to the gun tests at Anchor Ranch, though I imagine 75mm and 20mm cannon were not as loud as the explosions. We will never know whether Jack Raper or the people he was interviewing in 1944, had Murder in the Air in mind.
I have also heard of such an imaginary weapon from an earlier, and less well-known, example in Wheaton, Illinois. One day a plane about a thousand feet up developed engine trouble and had to make an emergency landing in a nearby paddock. Looking backwards, it seems clear to us what was important – but a spy for the Germans in the US during WWII would not know any of that, and might see no especial relevance to a story about a secret effort in the New Mexico desert, since there were dozens of other secret efforts going on at the same time.
The complexes at Hanford and Oak Ridge did draw attention, separately, and had their own leaks.
As I understand it, the strict compartmentalization of duties seen at Los Alamos is today commonplace in many defense activities. Compartmentalization was a common counter-intelligence practice well before the Manhattan Project; what Groves did differently was to run it at a level that was unusual even for military activity, where tens of thousands of people would be working on something rather directly without much knowledge of what they were doing.

Raper was a frequent speaker and a member of the leftist “Soviet Table” at the CITY CLUB OF CLEVELAND. What I find most interesting is that it would seem that an EMP had been deployed way before Trinity. I rather assume the anecdotes are the kind of rumors that flourish in a vacuum of information mixed with an air of mystery. I’ve often wondered if the bomb would have been built faster with my grandfather since his expertise was in explosives.
I recently came across references to atomic weapons which appeared in American and even German popular media and predate the Cleveland episode. Restricted Data is a blog about nuclear secrecy, past and present, run by Alex Wellerstein, a historian of science at the Stevens Institute of Technology. Getting good, honest advice from someone with business acumen and years of experience is always a welcome event whatever stage of your career you are at.
You can get too carried away with your own enthusiasm for a project and fail to take into consideration the real people who will need or use your product at some point. A laid-back, informal attitude may work well in brainstorming situations and may even lead to innovation; a bit of humour may work in certain situations to resolve or prevent conflict but humour and informality are not typically the right attitude when it comes to good project management. Knowledge is everything and the direct route to becoming an expert in any subject is to ask the right questions of the right people.

Don’t restrict yourself to only one type of solution or cling to what you have done in the past because it worked well when each new project is different.

Designed to highlight some of the company's lesser known projects, the exhibit will feature cars such as the 984 which was envisioned as a small and relatively inexpensive sports car that would appeal to younger buyers.
They even played around with the idea of a convertible and an all-wheel drive variant but the project was shelved in 1987 when the value of the dollar plummeted. The exhibit will also have miniatures from the Porsche archive as well as films showing early testing on the prototypes. Porsche has been operating in India through its distribution channel since 2004 and is now officially present through Volkswagen Group as the importer.
It was, as stated, voluntary: there were no fines or threats attached to it, just stern official rebuke. John Raper, a reporter for the Cleveland Press, while on vacation in New Mexico, somehow stumbled upon one of the biggest, most secret stories of the day. Below I reprint the entirety of the article — it nearly speaks for itself, both in its security violations and its strange rambling nature. It has fine streets, an electric light plant and waterworks with capacity for a city twice as large as Los Alamos, a service department that really services, public library, high, grade, and nursery schools; recreation centers, hospital, apartment houses, cottages, dance hall, an enormous grocery, refrigeration plant, factories and jail.
It has scenery enough for a whole state — peaks and peaks and more peaks, and cliffs and colors that dim the rainbow. If you have gone through all of the preliminary red tape previously and have been notified that you will be admitted, the men at the gate will know all about you and there will be little delay after you show the necessary papers. En route you will notice that the city is fenced in and that mounted soldiers patrol it and you will see scores of buildings. The man who commands the soldiers, who sees that the garbage and rubbish are collected, the streets kept up, the electric light plan and the waterworks functioning and all other metropolitan work operating smoothly is a Col. Oppenheimer and the hundreds of men and women in his laboratories and shops that makes Los Alamos such a carefully guarded city. Oppenheimer may tell the newspapers about what he has done at Los Alamos, there may be another now-it-can-be-told book or the secretary of war may hand out the report made to him. Of course, it also has a healthy dose of confusion, nonsense, and just plain silliness mixed into it.
There are many rumors around town about this project since thousands of construction workers from this vicinity have been employed at Los Alamos, many of our personnel go into town for shopping and weekends, and Dr.
Connell [director of the Los Alamos Ranch School] informed me several months ago that everyone in Santa Fe knew some sort of scientific project was underway at Los Alamos, but that curiosity had died down when no one found out anything more after several months, and they just accepted us without trying to guess what was done. It is hoped that some steps can be taken to deny the paper certain privileges as a result of their disclosure of this project in such an article. Oppenheimer is working on a beam that will cause the motors to stop so that German planes will drop from the skies as thought they were paving blocks. This led to another rumour that the telescope was a new secret weapon for putting the ignition systems of planes out of action.
What I mean is, this article was published in March of ’44 and we were still over a year away from Trinity. Maybe a subject for a future blog post, because there are multiple strands of information that would need to be put together if one wanted to suggest (in a counter-factual way), how could the Manhattan Project have been compromised, if the Axis (or anyone else) were inclined to do so, and had total knowledge of it? So if it became well-known a few years later that Oppenheimer was running a large secret project, how was it that thousands of professional and amateur scientists failed to guess what was going on at Los Alamos? In a sense these are less unlikely given their size and workforce; there were ample rumors surrounding these secret cities were tons of material went in and grams of material came out.
So it was definitely an idea that was in the air, even if the physics doesn’t make any sense (interfering with spark plugs?
It’s interesting too that, if that is the case, it was able to short out an automotive electrical system in the days before electronic ignitions and solid state voltage regulators (both systems at that time involved contact points).
As far as I know, the paper I had published late last year was the first public description of the 216th’s critical role.

Throughout the website, you’ll see many sports-themed analogies because I want to connect science with something that might be more familiar – sports. Press leaks and investigations have been around for quite a long time, and ever since the example of Woodward and Bernstein, this has become the ultimate symbol of journalistic power and access.
It has a population of between 5000 and 6000 persons, not more than probably half a dozen of whom can step outside of the city except by special permission of the city boss. And who knows but that the eminent physicist may deliver an address at the Cleveland City Club or the Rotary Club? But even a ray gun that stopped airplanes, or a chemical weapons plant, might be of interest to enemy spies. Ashbridge, the military head of Los Alamos, sent a copy to Groves a few days after it was published, noting that he had heard that Groves was already aware of it and that it had been shown to Oppenheimer. There were a tremendous number of puzzle pieces out there for an enemy power to notice and put together regarding the bomb effort.

Were we far enough along at this point that if Los Alamos were compromised we’d still get the bomb, slightly delayed? The trick of it, though, was that very few people at either of those two sites even knew that there were other sites, much less where they were. There is, of course, a big difference between having a hunch and really thinking that this was being done and would burst upon the scene in only a few years. The engineers working on the next-generation iPad may only have a part of the project in front of them, but they probably know they’re working on an iPad, as opposed to, say, a cruise missile.
During WORLD WAR II, Raper published a detailed description of the Army’s “Forbidden City” of Los Alamos, more than a year before the bombing of Hiroshima. He tells someone about this, they tell someone else, and so on, in that fashion of gossips, and sooner rather than later it gets embellished, takes on a life of its own, etc. World War II has a chapter, but the idea of defying the voluntary censorship code is not in there. But more important, as the weeks went by, more and more details were added, leaving less certainty.
They are obvious points really but we all need to be reminded of the obvious from time to time. They might think they’re doing a great job formulating ideas but are shocked when others working on the project disagree. When starting out on a complex, new piece of work it is crucial that you seek the help of those who fully understand the situation. He grants permission only in the most exceptional circumstances and under the most rigid conditions. For awhile he thought about getting Raper drafted to the Pacific Theatre — a rather bloodthirsty approach to the problem.
This is arguably the most successful part of Groves’ compartmentalization policy, because it meant it was very hard to put together the full picture of the entire project.
The biggest surprise of the Manhattan Project was not that an atomic bomb could be built, but that the US government was willing to commit to building it by 1945 and not, say, 1950 or later.
I would suspect that situations of Manhattan Project-like compartmentalization, where vast armies toil in completely ignorance as to the purpose of their labor, are quite rare.
From my reading, I believe this can be traced back to Parsons’s insistence that all mention of the ordnance work be omitted from the Smyth report. In essence, these are 5 sound pieces of advice it’s simply a matter of employing them well. Otherwise, you’ll start to come up with solutions before you’ve even worked out everything that you need to know for a successful completion. And while there is something to that, in the sense that American journalists were far more cooperative and acquiescent during the 1940s, it also projects a rosier picture backwards than ever truly existed. We know it was possible to put some of the pieces together, because the Soviets did it, and even a few others did it. Even the Soviets got very little information about Hanford, because their men were not involved with it at all.
To go from literally table-top science in 1939 to industrial-sized reactors and bombs by 1945 is by any measure improbable and astounding (especially since they didn’t really get started on it until late 1942). I can see no other reason for an anecdotal account of these effects on some unknown motorists vehicle.
My grandfather was ACoS to Generals Stilwell, then Wedermeyer in the CBI Theater from 1943-46 and was told by Gen. You can’t change something for the better if you don’t have an in depth knowledge of how the existing status quo works. Workers at Rocky Flats knew they were handling plutonium, for example, and that it was being used in nuclear weapons, even if they did not know the specifics of the weapon designs. Marshall after the war that he had been the original selectee to head the Manhattan Project.
If you forget about the people you are meant to be helping then you have very little chance of making the project a success and that could also blight the good work of others involved. Understandably, he couldn’t accomplish that — but he pulled off just enough that, with a bit of luck, the project stayed more or less below the water line. I am not sure I have heard of too many cases where workers were producing substances whose properties they were ignorant of, for purposes they were ignorant of. Problem was, the Army put off its decision to go ahead with the project for six months, and when they did go ahead, my grandfather had already been assigned to build three TNT plants.

Still, there is some irony in the fact that Oppenheimer would in the postwar take a position as the Director of the Institute for Advanced Study, in the Princeton, New Jersey, and as such effectively become Einstein’s boss. Schweber, Einstein and Oppenheimer: The Meaning of Genius (Harvard University Press, 2010). Henry Smyth once joked to the New Yorker that because he ran two different divisions in the project, he was not allowed by rules to talk to himself. I have even read stories that have said the technology was obvious, though I have no idea what it might have been.
Aside from the fact that no nuclear weapons had been set off by March 1944, the nuclear EMP at ground level is a very short-range effect compared to the blast effects, and if your car was really damaged by an EMP it would not start back up again in 15 minutes.
