Simpson researching anaesthetics, 1840s Featured 1 May 2007 Image

Simpson researching anaesthetics, 1840s

Sir James Young Simpson (1811-1870), Scottish doctor. This historical artwork shows Simpson's butler walking in on Simpson, who is suffering from the effects of a recent experiment. Simpson was passionate about alleviating pain, and always experimented with new anaesthetic agents, often on himself. He was the first person to use ether during childbirth on 19th January 1847 and in November 1847 he discovered the anaesthetic properties of chloroform. Opponents claimed that a painful labour was a biological and religious necessity, but the clamour died down in 1853 after Queen Victoria used chloroform during childbirth

Royal Navy Survey Vessel HMS Scott Featured 1 May 2007 Image

Royal Navy Survey Vessel HMS Scott

Pictured is the Royal Navy Survey Vessel HMS Scott.
The ship is fitted with a modern multi-beam sonar suite which permits mapping of the ocean floor worldwide. HMS Scott is fully lean-manned with a complement of only 63, made possible by moving toward commercial manning practices like the use of fixed fire fighting equipment and extensive machinery and safety surveillance technology. The ship has a three watch crew rotation system with 42 personnel embarked at any one time, enabling the ship to operate abroad for extended periods.
HMS Scott was constructed by Appledore Shipbuilders Ltd. in North Devon and launched by Mrs. Portillo on 13 October 1996
