The jack was one of the world’s first turbines and engineers have been using the same principle inside jet engines and power plants ever since. Since high heat can make turbines more efficient, the hot sections of modern turbines operate at temperatures above 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit, much higher than Leonardo’s design and near the melting point of steel...Read More....
