NASA awards space taxi contract to Boeing and SpaceX

ingediend
NASA has awarded the highly-anticipated space taxi contract to Boeing and SpaceX, a move which will end the agency’s reliance on Russian technology to transport U.S. astronauts to the International Space Station. The Commercial Crew Transportation Capability contract aims to restore an American capability to launch astronauts from U.S. soil to the International Space Station by the end of 2017. Since the end of the Space Shuttle program in 2011, American astronauts have been transported to space… (www.foxnews.com) Meer...

MH370 search: 'Object of interest' found on Western Australian coast

ingediend
Australian officials say an "object of interest" in the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane has been found, but Malaysia authorities said it was too early to tell if it is a real lead. Australian Transport Safety Bureau Chief Commissioner Martin Dolan described the object as appearing to be sheet metal with rivets, and said it was recovered on the coast of Western Australia. "It's sufficiently interesting for us to take a look at the photographs," he said. "We… (edition.cnn.com) Meer...

Malaysian Airliner (MH17) Downed by ‘High-Energy Objects From Outside the Aircraft,’ Dutch Investigators Say

ingediend
PARIS — Dutch investigators reported Tuesday that the Malaysian airliner that crashed in eastern Ukraine in July was penetrated by what they called “high-energy objects from outside the aircraft,” a finding consistent with theories that it was brought down by a missile. The objects struck the cockpit and front fuselage, the investigators reported, suggesting the missile came from the east, meaning it was fired from eastern Ukraine or western Russia. The investigators did not identify the source… (www.nytimes.com) Meer...

Flight 370: Underwater drones find nothing after scouring half of search area

ingediend
The underwater drone scanning for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 finished its seventh mission Sunday, having covered about half its intended territory without finding any sign of the missing plane. This has been the case for 44 days now, which seems like an eternity for the relatives of the 239 passengers and crew on board, still hoping for a miracle or, at least, closure. The Bluefin-21 drone started its eighth mission soon after the previous one ended Sunday morning, surveying the bottom of the… (edition.cnn.com) Meer...

VIDEO: Breathtaking Boeing 747 Cockpit Scenes

Every now and again, we come across a video that so perfectly captures the magic of aviation, we can’t help but share it. Today, we came across a three minute video capturing moments inside a Boeing 747-400. We couldn’t discern, for sure, what carrier it is or if it encompasses a single flight or clips from multiple. It does look like it starts off in Anchorage, however. (www.liveleak.com) Meer...

Confessions of a TSA Agent

I hated it from the beginning. It was a job that had me patting down the crotches of children, the elderly and even infants as part of the post-9/11 airport security show. Once, in 2008, I had to confiscate a bottle of alcohol from a group of Marines coming home from Afghanistan. It was celebration champagne intended for one of the men in the group—a young, decorated soldier. He was in a wheelchair, both legs lost to an I.E.D., and it fell to me to tell this kid who would never walk again that… (www.politico.com) Meer...

What are These Giant Concrete Arrows Across the American Landscape?

ingediend
 
In the 1920s, America began coast-to-coast Airmail service, but the pioneer pilots had trouble navigating the route, since navigation charts of the day were fugazi and you couldn't exactly pull over to ask a farmer for directions. And traveling at night, when it would have been most efficient, or in bad weather was impossible. To solve this Congress then funded these gi-normous arrow-shaped Airmail Beacons, some up to 70 feet long, to trace a route across the country. (www.core77.com) Meer...
