    convection oven

  • A cooking device that heats food by the circulation of hot air
  • Convection ovens or fan ovens or turbo ovens augment a traditional oven by circulating heated air using a fan. The fan motor is in a separate enclosure, to protect it from overheating and melting any plastic components including wire insulation.
  • This oven has a fan built into it that circulates the air and cooks the food more evenly than conventional ovens. It does not require preheating and uses conventional cookware.
  • An oven with fans that move the hot air around to give more even heat.


  • kitchen appliance that cooks food by passing an electromagnetic wave through it; heat results from the absorption of energy by the water molecules in the food
  • An electromagnetic wave with a wavelength in the range 0.001–0.3 m, shorter than that of a normal radio wave but longer than those of infrared radiation. Microwaves are used in radar, in communications, and for heating in microwave ovens and in various industrial processes
  • cook or heat in a microwave oven; “You can microwave the leftovers”
  • a short electromagnetic wave (longer than infrared but shorter than radio waves); used for radar and microwave ovens and for transmitting telephone, facsimile, video and data


  • In Greek and Roman mythology, Apollo (in Greek, ???????—Apollon or ???????—Apellon), is one of the most important and diverse of the Olympian deities.
  • The Apollo was made by the Chicago Recording Scale Co, of Waukegan, Illinois, from 1906 to 1907. The only model by that manufacturer was a five-seater with a Roi-des-Belges body. Power came from a water-cooled four cylinder engine by way of a three-speed transmission and shaft drive.
  • A god, son of Zeus and Leto and brother of Artemis. He is associated with music, poetic inspiration, archery, prophecy, medicine, pastoral life, and in later poetry with the sun; the sanctuary at Delphi was dedicated to him
  • The American space program for landing astronauts on the moon. Apollo 8 was the first mission to orbit the moon (1968), Apollo 11 was the first to land astronauts (July 20, 1969), and five further landings took place up to 1972
  • (Greek mythology) Greek god of light; god of prophecy and poetry and music and healing; son of Zeus and Leto; twin brother of Artemis

apollo microwave convection oven – How Apollo

How Apollo Flew to the Moon (Springer Praxis Books / Space Exploration)
How Apollo Flew to the Moon (Springer Praxis Books / Space Exploration)
Between 1968 and 1972, twenty four daring men journeyed from Earth to the Moon. This fascinating book traces what was a massive accomplishment right from the early launches through manned orbital spaceflights, detailing each step. Out of the battlefields of World War II came the gifted German engineers and designers who developed the V-2 rocket, which evolved into the powerful Saturn V booster that propelled men to the Moon. David Woods tells this exciting story, starting from America’s postwar astronautical research facilities. The techniques and procedures developed have been recognised as an example of human exploration at its greatest, demonstrating a peak of technological excellence.

Apollo 16 SIM Bay Camera 245mm Direct Negative
This 245mm film roll is huge, and our largest hallway was not long enough, allowing only half of it to be unrolled.

“1972 APOLLO 16 245mm PANCHROMATIC NEGATIVE B/W FILM ROLL. Complete on metal reel in original metal protective case with NASA label on top. Shot from the SIMBAY camera (film type 2420/2422), this roll shows lunar surface as seen from Command Module. Film magazines had to be retrieved via EVA by Astronaut Ken Mattingly on the return trip to Earth.” (Regency Superior)

NASA Apollo 11: An Insight into the Hardware from the First Manned Mission to Land on the Moon
On July 20, 1969, US astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. The Apollo 11 mission that carried him and his two fellow astronauts on their epic journey marked the successful culmination of a quest that, ironically, had begun in Nazi Germany thirty years before. This is the story of the Apollo 11 mission and the ‘space hardware’ that made it all possible. Author Chris Riley looks at the evolution and design of the mighty Saturn V rocket, the Command and Service Modules, and the Lunar Module. He also describes the space suits worn by the crew, with their special life support systems. Launch procedures are described, ‘flying’ the Saturn V, navigation, course correction ‘burns’, orbital rendezvous techniques, flying the LEM, moon landing, moon walk, take-off from the moon, and earth re-entry procedure. Includes performance data, fuels, biographies of Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins, Gene Kranz and Werner von Braun. Detailed appendices cover all of the Apollo missions, with full details of crews, spacecraft names and logos, mission priorities, moon landing sites, and the Lunar Rover.
