Supersonic Flying Wing Nabs $100,000 from NASA

Supersonic Flying Wing Nabs $100,000 from NASA | Cool Science! | Scoop.it
A futuristic aircraft resembling a flying ninja star can turn 90 degrees in midair to go into supersonic mode.

 

The unusual "flying wing" concept has won $100,000 in NASA funding to trying becoming a reality for future passenger jet travel.

 

The supersonic, bidirectional flying wing idea comes from a team headed by Ge-Chen Zha, an aerospace engineer at Florida State University. He said the fuel-efficient aircraft could reach supersonic speeds without the thunderclap sound produced by a sonic boom — a major factor that previously limited where the supersonic Concorde passenger jet could fly over populated land masses.

 

Comment: It's a couple of decades off into the future yet, but still ... a neat idea!

Maria Drohan's curator insight, October 8, 2013 11:49 AM

I loved this article, it was very interesting. I found it very interesting reading about the characteristics of music that are also very important and effective in music therapy such as the tempo, rhythm and volume of the music. This can be carefully controlled in order to maximize a huge positive effect that music can have on the brain weather conscious or unconscious.

Evacuated Tube Transport Technologies (ET3)™ :: Create the Future Design Contest | Cool Science! | Scoop.it
Transportation is the master key to survival. A new mode of transportation (independent of diminishing fossil energy) is necessary to achieving an environmentally sustainable yet thriving economy in an urbanized world.

WHAT: ET3™ is literally ‘Space Travel on Earth,’ a global transportation system that is silent, low cost, fast, secure, safe, and environmentally friendly.

 

ET3 utilizes automobile sized capsules weighing 400lb empty that carry 6 persons or 800 lbs of cargo.

 

The magnetically levitated capsules operate in two-way networks of 5' diameter tubes. Air is permanently removed from the sealed tubes to eliminate drag force...
