  Summary of the Rosary of Arnold de Villa Nova
Quicksilver is the matter and element of all metals alike; all of them when melted are converted thereto, and it also combines with them; at the same time, in some it is more and in some less pure, on account of its corruptive external sulphur.
The latter the quicksilver retains, nor can it ever be taken away, as being homogeneous with it: the former it spurns and rejects, and exposes to the action of the fire, which consumes it.
And as quicksilver prevents combustion, so it is the cause of metallic fusibility, and it is that by means of which the tincture pervades the metals, since it receives the homogeneous tinctural influence in all its smallest parts.

 Operation Fortitude - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Operation Fortitude was the collective codename for a number of the deception operations used by the Allied forces during World War II prior to and following the Normandy landings.
It was conceivably one of the largest and most successful deception operations of the 20th century.
This was vital to the success of the Allied plan since it forced the Germans to keep most of their reserves bottled up waiting for an attack on Calais which never came, thereby allowing the Allies to maintain and build upon their marginal foothold in Normandy.

Quicksilver possesses the superhuman ability to run, think and react at great speed; he has often claimed that the rest of the world seems to move, and think, in slow motion, which is what has led to his impatient, arrogant temper.
In the TV animated series ''X-Men: Evolution'' Quicksilver (voiced by Richard Ian Cox) had a prominent role as the manipulator and driving force of the Brotherhood - composed of him, Avalanche, Blob, Toad, and, later, his sister the Scarlet Witch - who was one of the few people who could scare him.
In this series Quicksilver was aware of his father from the beginning, and acted as his liaison to the Brotherhood when Mystique was in control.

 A Tract of Great Price
Quicksilver is the mother of all metals, on account of its coldness and moistness; and if it be once purified and cleansed of all foreign matter it cannot be mixed any more with grossness of any kind neither can it be changed back into an imperfect metal.
The sulphur and quicksilver of the Sages are one and the same thing, which is first of the nature of quicksilver, or moist and watery and is then by constant coction transmuted into the nature of sulphur, which may Most justly be described as dry and igneous.
The quicksilver of the Sages has no power to transmute imperfect metals, until it has absorbed the essential qualities of gold and silver; for in itself it is no metal at all, and if it is to impart the spirit, the colour, and the hardness of gold and silver, it must first receive them itself.

 SILVER - LoveToKnow Article on SILVER   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
Amalgamation is based on the property of quicksilver to extract the silver from finely-pulverized ore and collect it in the form of an amalgam.
When the rock has been separated from the amalgam by a washing operation, the quicksilver is recovered by distillation in an iron retort, and the remaining crude retortsilver melted into bars and shipped to a refinery, which removes the impurities, the leading one of which is copper.
The loss in quicksilver is small, as there is no chemical loss inherent in the process; the yield is relatively high, but the bullion is liable to be low-trade, on account of copper being precipitated and amalgamated.

 Nuclear testing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Frigate Bird - on May 6, 1962, a UGM-27 Polaris A-1 missile with a live 600 kt W47 warhead was launched from the USS Ethan Allen (SSBN-608); it flew 1900 km, re-entered the atmosphere, and detonated at an altitude of 3.4 km over the South Pacific.
The test was part of Operation Dominic I.
Planned as a method to dispel doubts about whether the USA's nuclear missiles would actually function in practice, it had less effect than was hoped, as the stockpile warhead was substantially modified prior to testing, and the missile tested was a relatively low-flying SLBM and not a high-flying ICBM.

 Summary of the Rosary of Arnold de Villa Nova
Quicksilver in its essence is a compound of very subtle, white, sulphureous earth, with bright water, so as to make up one substance, which finds no rest upon a plane surface.
Quicksilver is the matter and element of all metals alike; all of them when melted are converted thereto, and it also combines with them; at the same time, in some it is more and in some less pure, on account of its corruptive external sulphur.
It is quicksilver, then, which perfects bodies, and saves them from combustion, because the more bodies are of the nature of quicksilver, the less are they liable to combustion.

 ByDanJohnson.com - Sport II S on Floats
But some credit goes to the Quicksilver 2S, which, like its older wire-braced siblings, is one of the easiest landing aircraft in ultralight aviation.
One clear benefit to the Quicksilver 2S struts is their more rigid support of the trailing edge that yields a crisper aileron response.
In addition to its squeaky-clean flight characteristics, the Quicksilver MX series may be the most thoroughly tested ultralights ever, a combination of professional-grade engineering and thousands upon thousands of hours in the hands of all kinds of ultralight pilots.

 Review | Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson
To write it down in a vast Encyclopedia that will be a sort of machine, not only for finding old operations on those numbers -- and to employ all of this in a great project of bringing religious conflict to an end, and raising Vagabonds up out of squalor and liberating their potential energy.
To those early Royal Society gearheads, quicksilver was "the pure living essence of God's power and presence in the world." Newton, Hooke and Leibniz are all hackers, trying to crack the code of knowledge.
Quicksilver is actually three books bound in one volume: Book the First follows Daniel Waterhouse, Newton's college roommate, and his associations with the Royal Society.

 The Deception Plan - Operation Fortitude   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
This aimed to suggest that the Allied plan was for a limited invasion sailing from Scotland to liberate southern Norway, followed by main landings across the Dover Straits to liberate the rest of Europe.
Operation Fortitude North involved the display of a build-up of dummy aircraft on Scottish airfields - there were more than enough real ships in the Scottish ports not to need dummies.
The idea was to simulate the assembly of an invasion fleet in East Anglia and its gradual move down the coast to Dover and Folkestone in readiness for the final assault on Calais.

 WWII - Europe - D-Day - G-Z
The lack of direct references to the Ultra material, which was used to check on the success of these operations, is a major void in the Masterman's presentation.
However, his lack of access to Allied records, the absence of knowledge of Ultra and of the work of the XX Committee, the presence of errors and gaps in the story, and the lack of documentation reduce the book's utility.
Surveillant 2.1: Operation Quicksilver was "devised in 1943 and involved building dummy landing craft and mooring them in various rivers and harbors on the coast, giving the impression to enemy reconnaissance planes that there was a build-up of belligerent forces in those areas."

 Quicksilver World Water Speed Record Challenge - Introducing "Quicksilver"
Now, Nigel Macknight's Quicksilver team aims to break Australia's hold on the Record and return it to Britain, where so much water-speed history has been made.
To achieve such astronomical speeds, water conditions must be near-calm and the boat itself must overcome water resistance by rising clear of the water's surface and skimming across it.
With Quicksilver, the philosophy is to use modern technology in design, construction and operation to increase safety margins substantially beyond what has been feasible in the past.
