Aurora Wins DARPA VTOL X-Plane Experimental Plane Challenge

If there’s one aviation development that fascinates the military, it would be the ability to take-off vertically like helicopters do and travel at speeds like conventional aircraft. While this has been done, it was never wildly efficient. So, how do you make it even more ‘efficient’? Well, this is the challenge set out by DARPA, …

Bold Hypersonic Concept Jets Will Fly From London To New York In 30 Mins

Technology has advanced leaps and bounds, but one thing mankind hasn’t progress quite as much is air travel’s speeds. The fact remains that, unless teleportation becomes a reality, air travel will remain the preferred and fastest mode of transport between cities and countries which still takes hours on ends.

Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin Successfully Relaunched A Reusable Rocket

Commercial aircrafts don’t get dumped after traveling to somewhere and so, why should space-going rocket be any different? Yes. We are talking about reusable rockets that will (hopefully), in near future, make suborbital space flight and space cargo delivery more cost effective. The idea is being explored by both SpaceX and Blue Origin. While SpaceX …

Drone With Flamethrower Roasts Holiday Turkey Like A Boss

It doesn’t take a genius to know that a drone and a flamethrower combined is not a good news. Even so, you don’t expect a teen who had the history of retrofitting a handgun onto a drone to back off from such delightful project, don’t you? Yup. We are referring to 19 year old Austin …

$700,000 Personal Aircraft Looks Like A Flying Craft From The Future

Forget about flying cars. They are not going to happen anytime soon. So, now your best bet would be splurging on a Bugatti that will get you from point A to point B faster, but at the mercy of the traffic, or get yourself a private jet that lets you travel farther in a significantly …
