1/20 Good afternoon. I’m Antony Firth and I’m going to tweet about ‘Steel on the Seabed’. I’ll be referencing work with @HistoricEngland @HE_Maritime @honor_frost @SouterNT @HeritageFundNE @citizan @IoSIFCA @tynetotees @ukchp. Many thanks to all & to organisers of #SWOS20! Image
2/20 By ‘Steel on the Seabed’ I mean #shipwrecks from the period c. 1850-1950 – a period of numerous radical transformations in ships but also in the communities whose lives they touched. These historic steel artefacts within the marine environment still reverberate. #SWOS20
3/20 In 1832 before most were even built, Lyell surmised ‘It is probable that a greater number of monuments of the skill and industry of man [sic] will be collected together in the bed of the ocean than will exist at any other time on the surface of the continents’. #SWOS20 Image

For #INWED20, I'm highlighting NASA Aerospace Engineer, LaTunia Pack-Melton. Her work in aerodynamics and flow control will undoubtedly #ShapeTheWorld for future flight. Thread 1/10 #blackinSTEM #WomeninSTEM
LaTunia is an aerospace engineering graduate of Mississippi State University. Her career at NASA Langley Research Center spans more than 2 decades to-date, starting as a Research Engineer around 1998* and becoming a Senior Research Scientist in 2017* (*years approximate) 2/10
During that time, LaTunia has worked in the Flow Physics & Control Branch of NASA LaRC, pushing the boundaries in flow control research and development. Flow control has the potential to adjust the flow around aircraft wing and empennage, to reduce drag and fuel burn 3/10
