    Navigational science during the dark days
    From: Annaig Labornez

    Sirs,

    Recently, I became aware of the thesis written by Robert Genty, in tituled "Methode nouvelle de navigation astronomique". www.numdam.org/issue/these_1944_263_1_0.pdf.

    The paper intercrosses  many recent topics discussed on the forum and it might interest many readers.

    It also enlights the situation of the science in France during the second world war ( the last observations mentioned by the autor took place in the observatoire de Paris by the end of april 1944.

    It shows the willing to perform some applied science (may be scientists were unable to do something else because of the collapse of scientifics networks due to the continental blocade). Military implications, au nez et à la barbe , of the German occupants are obvious

    Best regards
