“Sometimes it’s the very people who no one imagines anything of who do the things no one can imagine.” –Christopher Morcom to Alan Turing in The Imitation Game
With 159,000,000,000,000,000,000 (quintillion) possible codes that can be input into the Nazis’ Enigma machine, breaking the ever-changing code to decipher military messages seems impossible. The Germans change the encryption code every 24-hours at midnight. Desperate to crack the Enigma code, the British government hires an arrogant, intelligent, but socially inept mathematics professor, Alan Turing, to join the team of code-breakers. After an agonizing struggle, the brilliant Turing builds a machine he names Christopher that cracks the Enigma code.
Historians estimate that breaking the Enigma code shortened the war by more than two years and saved over 14 million lives. After such success, one would expect to see the brilliant Alan Turing honored for his service. Instead, he was criminalized. Based on a true story.
Due to the weather, 4-H Club Day has been postponed. It is rescheduled for March 7, 2015, at Kingman Elementary & Middle School.
