Who am I?

I was born in England in the very early 20th century. I tried to join the RAF in 1923, but they wouldn't have me because I was too small. I tried again after a spot of bodybuilding, but was told I could not have a second chance. So I tried again under an assumed name and got in!

I reached the rank of Air Commodore.

I and a German engineer worked independently on the same idea. But I'm the 'Daddy'.

Does this idea have anything to do with engines?

It  certainly does C4M.

Sorry for the flying visit, but I must cut & thrust to close a conference this afternoon. Me thinks C4M has cracked it anyway.

I emigrating to the U.S. in 1976. I was appointed as Research Professor at the United States Naval Academy from 1977–1979.

I made my home in Columbia, Maryland.

Who am I?

I was born in Poland in 1945. As a child I was very ill, and nearly died.
In 1965, I enrolled in the University of Jenna, but after a few years I was imprisoned due to my political beliefs.
One of my trademarks is a direct reference to an oil painting by Rembrandt. I am flamboyant, and known for creating controversy wherever  I go.
I am best known for being able to ‘halt time’.
 ;D

Nope not an architect. I am not quite as famous or well-known as the other scientists who have been on here,but nevertheless my contribution to science is very notable, especially the teaching of anatomy. I am problably better known for my controversy than my contibution to science.
I am still alive, and I have had several TV shows centered around my work.

Ok that might help out a bit more... I like keeping you all in suspenders. Ir is that suspense??
