  • Geoffrey Nathaniel Joseph Pyke (9 November 1893 – 21 February 1948) was an English journalist, educationalist, and later an inventor whose clever, but unorthodox, ideas could be difficult to implement. In lifestyle and appearance, he fitted the common stereotype of a scientist-engineer-inventor or in British slang, a "boffin". Pyke came to public attention when he escaped from internment in Germany during World War I. He had travelled to Germany under a false passport, he was soon arrested and interned. Pyke is particularly remembered for his innovative proposals for weapons of war, most especially the material pykrete and the proposed construction of the ship Habakkuk from it. (en)

  • Fu un educatore e successivamente un inventore le cui idee, brillanti ma non ortodosse, erano difficili da sviluppare. Nel suo modo di vivere e nell'aspetto era simile allo stereotipo comune di uno scienziato-ingegnere-inventore. È ricordato in particolare per le sue proposte innovative di armamenti, più in particolare per il pykrete, un materiale di ghiaccio e polpa di legno, e per la sua proposta di costruire una portaerei con tale materiale (Progetto Habakkuk) (it)
