The history of the jet engine has everything: genius, tragedy, heroism, a world war, the individual against the state, and an idea that would change the world.Frank Whittle has always maintained that he was hampered by a lack of government support.At the very moment when, in 1943, when his invention was unveiled to the world, his society, the Power of Jets, was nationalized.Whittle again of the brilliance, charm and charisma, helped him to recruit key support from the British government and the RAF, which gave him the green light to build an aircraft engine at a time when making little sense.Here’s a story about how technology can push technology to its limits – and the effect it can have on the people involved.
