NASA's Chicken Gun

Scientists at NASA built a gun specifically to launch
 standard 4 pound dead chickens at the windshields of
 airliners, military jets and the space shuttle, all traveling
 at maximum velocity. The idea is to simulate the frequent
 incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength
 of the windshields.

 British engineers heard about the gun and were eager
 to test it on the windshields of their new high speed trains.
 Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the British
 engineers.
 
 When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as
 the chicken hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof
 shield, smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control
 console, snapped the engineer's back-rest in two, and
 embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin, like an arrow
 shot from a bow.
 
 The horrified Brits sent NASA the disastrous results
 of the experiment, along with the designs of the
 windshield and begged the U.S. . scientists for suggestions.
 
 NASA responded with a one-line memo --
 
 
 
 
 

"Defrost the chicken." (True Story)

Other Chicken Stories

Blue Peacock, renamed from Blue Bunny and originally dubbed Brown Bunny, was the codename of a British tactical nuclear weapon project in the 1950s—dubbed the chicken-powered nuclear bomb.

The goal of the project was to store a number of ten-kiloton nuclear mines in Germany, to be placed on the North German Plain and, in the event of Soviet invasion from the east, detonated by wire or an eight-day timer.

To: "...not only destroy facilities and installations over a large area, but...deny occupation of the area to an enemy for an appreciable time due to contamination..."

One technical problem was that buried objects—especially during winter—can get very cold, and it was possible the mine would not have worked after some days underground, due to the electronics being too cold to operate properly. One particularly remarkable proposal suggested that live chickens should be included in the mechanism. The chickens would be sealed inside the casing, with a supply of food and water; they would remain alive for a week or so. The body heat given off by the chickens would, it seems, have been sufficient to keep all the relevant components at a working temperature.

This proposal was sufficiently outlandish that it was taken as an April Fool's Day joke when the Blue Peacock file was declassified on April 1, 2004.

"It does seem like an April Fool's Day Joke but it most certainly is not. The Civil Service does not do jokes."
