    I don't believe Edward Teller was correct in that statement, unless he's referring to what the end users of applied technologies are experiencing.

    Me 262 went supersonic in 1945 !

    Thanks for stating the obvious.

    Me 262 went supersonic in 1945 !

    It has been discussed in some circles whether the 262 ever did break the sound barrier. In light of what a few surviving 262 pilots have claimed to have happened, it seems likely that it did in some cases break the sound barrier but the airframes that did either crashed from failing to recover...

    Came across some Stan Meyers documentation...

    ...and would like to share it with you. These documents are mostly in english but some in japanese and at least one in spanish. I find the Stan Meyers patent documents most interesting, and in 'The Birth of New Technology' Stan give a overall explanation of how his hydrogen fuel cell work...

    Synergy Aircraft

    Thanks John for opening up for a new way of thinking in aircraft design. The truly novel part of your innovation is not the aircraft as such nor the technologies applied in the design, but the approach and attitude to design configuration and optimization. I believe the most important aspect of...

    A 4 engine jet as homebuilt ?

    If I was on a Pentagon budget for a personal jet, that looks like something of the sort I would build! :gig:

    A 4 engine jet as homebuilt ?

    The more I think of this the more I like it. It could be relatively easily tested in 1/2 or 2/3 scale RC using the same engine as the full scale but two or possibly three instead of four. How feasible it would be to use RC turbines on a full scale machine I do not know, never flown RC jet. I...

    A 4 engine jet as homebuilt ?

    Not that I have much experience in that area, but I belive smuggling wouldn't be a issue with such a small craft. That is, the payload is insignificantly small that it would not be worth it. In Sweden we have a 250 kts TAS limit below 10k and if you show up with something that routinely break...

    Could Cold Fusion power a aircraft?

    This is interesting, I've not tried it though but what do you think? It would seem some people are using it with good results. Home - Alternative Gas Solutions

    Could Cold Fusion power a aircraft?

    No I won't, your arrogance is your problem. Live with it it's your decision and chosen way of life if you conduct yourself in that manner. Since you already know it all... why are we having this discussion? You seem to have the answers to everything so it would appear pointless to continue...

    Could Cold Fusion power a aircraft?

    This is interesting. Positioned to take off in Japan for sure, after the recent nuclear power situation. Or do you sceptics think this is fake as well? Autoreply I believe you missed the part where I said... "This is all according to Rossi of course." That sentence means that I'm not...

    Could Cold Fusion power a aircraft?

    Ok, in all honesty you don't know the particulars of what they are doing so let's not call anyone a liar until we know for sure. It may be that they have in fact discovered something very new, which is not in line with our current or previous knowledge. After all, it is a possibility so I think...

    Could Cold Fusion power a aircraft?

    In the lab Rossi and his team has produced with this device up to 400 times more output power than input. The input being only from what's already inside the box in the form of fuel, no external input is needed but for control purposes. The problem they had with such a high output/input ratio...

    are triple tandem wings the future ?

    The point with 3LS is that all surfaces work in the same direction. Using a stabilizer to counteract the main wing is counter productive, it creates negative lift which also has to be compensated for by the main wing. Which in turn means a slightly bigger wing and a slightly bigger...

    Could Cold Fusion power a aircraft?

    I agree, but consider Geordani Bruno as a example. He said some ~415 years ago that the universe is infinite and populated by thousands of galaxies. For that claim he was burned at the stake in Rome by the Catholic Church after years of imprisonment. So howcome we know of and remember Copernicus...
