Hindenburg Disaster

The Hindenburg disaster took place on 6 May 1937 as the German rigid airship Hindenburg caught fire and was destroyed within one minute while attempting to dock with its mooring mast at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station, which is located adjacent to the borough of Lakehurst in Manchester Township, New Jersey. Of the 97 people on board, 35 people died in addition to one fatality on the ground. The disaster was the subject of spectacular newsreel coverage, photographs, and Herbert Morrison's recorded radio eyewitness report from the landing field, which was broadcast the next day. The actual cause of the fire remains unknown, although a variety of theories have been put forward for both the cause of ignition and the initial fuel for the ensuing fire.

The disaster drove people away from hydrogen airships and is still said that it was one of the worst hydrogen disasters ever recorded.

Jo & Clement's Visit

On Tuesday 2ND June 2009 Some students from SIFE At the university of Waikao It was a very interesting session. Some of the things they talked about were to do with how we effect the globe and how we can do beter to try to protect it. these are some of the notes I recorded:(1) Sustainability has become a complex term that can be applied to almost every system on Earth, particularly the many different levels of biological organization, such as; wetlands, prairies and forests and is expressed in human organization concepts, such as; eco-municipalities, sustainable cities, and human activities and disciplines, such as; sustainable agriculture, sustainable architecture and renewable energy. (2)For humans to live sustainably, the Earth's resources must be used at a rate at which they can be replenished. However, there is now clear scientific evidence that humanity is living unsustainably, and that an unprecedented collective effort is needed to return human use of natural resources to within sustainable limits. They also did some amazing stuf about how we could through out 1/2 of the rubish we could usally throw away WOW!!!!!!!!!!!
