In 1934 a 13-year old girl did the calculations to show that a Spitfire would need 8 cannons
instead of the planned number of 4, to enable it to shoot down a German bomber attack.
RAF said that her "important contribution to our later success in the Battle of Britain was
vital to this country's survival.
Does it mean that the Taliban are right that we should never allow girls to get an education?
Discuss.

Britain peaked with Newton and all the other great geniuses after that have been German or French.
It's no surprise that even a little girl can do better than actual scientists in the UK.

The spitfire's 8 gun a-wing design was a failure in combat and it was replaced by the 4 gun e wing shortly before the spitfire's carburetor issue was fixed.

they go to universities there you moron, they just dont allow mixed education because they are not degenerates like the west who think university is a place for orgies and sodomy

Yeah that fits in with the big genetic trend, britain peaked in the mid victorian era.

it was traditional to give repetitive computations to women. same reason NASA employed females. they were human calculators. they weren't performing anything intellectual, just number crunching. not to say they can't do anything intellectual, but in the western world in 1934 they certainly didn't allow it.

All problems created by women can be dealt with via the following:

>She was only 13 when she helped her father Frederick to calculate how many guns the new generation of Spitfires and Hurricanes would need to bring down enemy aircraft.[1] The pair used calculating machines, which were rudimentary computers, at the kitchen table of their London home.[2] The new plane was to have four guns that fired 1,200 bullets a minute and many thought that this would be more than enough. Her dad was not so sure. In June and July 1934 they worked at night to create the evidence that her dad's boss needed to underwrite a large change in the design. They realised that 256 bullets would be required in two seconds to bring down an enemy bomber at the increased speeds of the new aircraft and for this eight guns were required.
Holy shit she was literally just helping her dad at the kitchen table with a calculator
I fucking can't decide who's more stupid, the tranny who made this bait thread or the incel chuds that can't be arsed to look up her name
>>
>>13746265
how do you calculations to figure out the amount of cannons required to shoot down another plan? this makes no sense. Maybe if you do simulations or something which a 13 year old cant do with math. Also why wouldnt they max out the amount of canons originally if it actually increases deadliness?
>>
>>13748717
They had an estimate of how many rounds do you need to put into a bomber to bring it down. What is the accuracy of a gun at various ranges.
Now given the speed of the fighter how many guns do you need to have to have enough rounds on target in a single pass.
Something like that.

>>13746265
And the 13-year old girl's name? Albert Einstein.

Well she was wrong because it turned down 8 .303 machine guns were still not enough and they ended up equipping later models with 2 20mm cannon and 2 .50cal machine guns

Faraday? Maxwell? Hawking?

But some of the greatest scientists have been Hungarian. It is said the John von Neumann was the most intelligent person ever to have lived.

nice b8
have a Crick mention

those guys really give credit to smart dudes, a nice initial motivator
