I thought it could be of interest to some to see some info I just recently bumped into.
Youtube, based I guess on past videos seen, showed me a link to this video, where it is mentioned that the Turbinia's creator, Charles Algernon Parsons, was also an astronomer:
The speaker needs quite obviously a better sweater and is not always crystal clear but he does a good job overall and I found the video to be enjoyable.
So I did a quick search but, besides a Wikipedia page, I did not find much on Charles Algernon Parsons and his telescopes work. The Wikipedia page also referenced to another astronomer in the family, his brother Lawrence Parsons. However, I found this this other video and very interesting video on Sir William Parson, their father. I hope I got the family genealogy right.
I guess this is all well known to many, but I thought to share with those who like me did not know it.
