HOTCHKISS Type PL 25 (1955)

A l’origine de la marque, il y a Benjamin-Berkeley Hotchkiss né aux Etats-Unis en 1828 et qui immigra en France en 1867. Armurier par vocation, il crée en 1875 à Saint-Denis (Seine-St-Denis) une manufacture d’armes légères et devient très vite fournisseur de l’armée. C’est Hotchkiss qui fabriquera entre autres la mitrailleuse 8 mm équipant le char Renault FT 17. La guerre finie, il s’intéresse très vite à l’automobile (voitures, utilitaires et véhicules industriels) avec des fortunes diverses.

Son premier utilitaire sort en 1936. Il est équipé d’un moteur de 2,3 litres de cylindrée (86 x 99,5 mm) à soupapes en tête. Sa fabrication reprend à la fin de la guerre et se poursuit jusqu’en 1951, année de sortie d’un nouveau modèle, le PL 20, de deux tonnes de charge utile, équipé d’une cabine entièrement métallique style US. Moteur inchangé.

Son successeur sera, en 1952, le PL 25. Ce véhicule, d’une charge utile de 2,5 tonnes, fut largement diffusé en France et sa ligne typique est encore présente dans la mémoire des usagers de la route des années 55/70. II bénéficiait d’une réputation de robustesse tout à fait justifiée. La série s’arrêta en 1964.

L’exemplaire de la Fondation est de 1940. Restauré de mai à octobre 1989, il est en parfait état de marche.

Like Planet Can Sustain Life

Gliese 581g is the wholesale jerseys china first world discovered beyond Earth that’s the right size and location for life.

« Personally, given the ubiquity and propensity of life to flourish wherever it can, I would say that the chances for life on this planet are 100 percent. I have almost no doubt about it, » Steven Vogt, professor of astronomy and astrophysics at the University of California Santa Cruz, told Discovery News.

The discovery caps an 11 year effort to tease out information from instruments on ground based telescopes that measure minute variations in starlight caused by the gravitational tugs of orbiting planets.

Planet G the sixth member in Gliese 581’s family orbits right in the middle of that system’s habitable region, where temperatures would be suitable for liquid water to pool on the planet’s surface.

« Everything we know about life is that it absolutely requires liquid water, » he added. « The planet has to be the right distance from the star so it’s not too hot, not too cold and then it has to wholesale nba jerseys china have surface gravity so that it can hold on to a substantial atmosphere and allow the water to pool. »

With a mass three times larger than Earth’s, the newly discovered world has the muscle to hold atmosphere. Plus, it has the gift of time. Not only is its wholesale cheap jerseys parent star especially long lived, the planet is tidally locked to its sun similar to how the moon keeps the same side pointed wholesale jerseys at Earth so that half the world is in perpetual light and the other half in permanent darkness.
