The Crown has claimed regulatory control of every means of conveyance, stifling the free travel of individuals and their property. This is an intolerable act. Superior transportation technologies already exist, but are suppressed by regulations.
'Welcome to the moon': How Odysseus 'aced the landing of a lifetime' as it touched down on the lunar surface following a nail-biting 73-minute descent - marking the first time the US has reached the moon in more than 50 years
Yamaha previously announced it would show its prototype hydrogen-combustion outboard motor at the 2024 Miami International Boat Show, and it's gone the extra mile in bringing a prototype boat and fuel delivery system to go along with it.
The US is taking another stab at landing a privately owned and operated spacecraft on the Moon. At 1:05 am EST today, the Odysseus lander lifted off atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 29A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Aurora Flight Sciences has updated the design of its Liberty Lifter seaborne military heavy-lift transport – a highly efficient X-plane the company is developing for DARPA that achieves bulk lift by using wing-in-ground effect.
Louis Rossmann interviews Chace Barber, going for a deep dive into the inspiring world of Edison Motors! We uncover the journey of a pioneering company that's not just producing electric trucks but also championing the right to repair and tech freed
Tim Lum is part of Opener's Early Access program where the company partners with early adopters of the aircraft to gather data about the ownership experience. BlackFly is built to comply with the FAA Part 103 ultralight category, which means no pilot
Carbon fiber (CF) is an amazing material that provides a lot of strength for very little weight, making it very useful for a lot of applications, ranging from rods in CoreXY 3D printers to model- and full-sized rockets.
In a continuing pursuit to create a new generation of airplane flight, i've shifted away from dedicated ionic thrusters, and toward something much more integrated. Now may be the time for ionic thrust airfoils - wings which create thrust themselves,
A novel Wave Rotor (WR) topping cycle is proposed that promises to deliver similar thrust as NERVA class NTP propulsion, but with Isp in the 1400-2000 second range. Coupled with an NEP cycle, the duty cycle Isp can further be increased (1800-4000 sec
A nuclear fission fragment rocket engine (FFRE) that is exponentially more propellent efficient than rocket engines currently used to power today's space vehicles and could eventually achieve very high specific impulse (>100,000 sec) at high power
Both Ford and Rivian are using Tesla's off-roading failures to promote their own vehicles' capabilities. A couple of weeks ago, we showcased a clip of a Tesla Cybertruck tackling some light off-road trail.
A nuclear fission fragment rocket engine (FFRE) that is exponentially more propellent efficient than rocket engines currently used to power today's space vehicles and could eventually achieve very high...
"Outside of Nikola, you're just not seeing large commercial development in North America." Nikola is the front-runner so far in the hydrogen-truck field, but traditional manufacturers including Kenworth, Hyundai Motor and Volvo Trucks are also
The NT Times had a recent article discussing laser nuclear fusion. Nextbigfuture has spoken with all of the nuclear fusion companies listed in the NY Times article as they all attended the 2023 International Conference on Inertial Fusion Sciences and
The SP80 and Syroco teams have both got their remarkable boats on the water. Looking like a pair of alien spaceships, and pulled by ultra-fast kites instead of sails on masts, both these machines are built to reach terrifying, unprecedented speeds.
After 15 years of development and prototype testing, CycloTech has presented its first concept aircraft. The CruiseUp is a unique-looking personal two-seat eVTOL air car designed for cross-town hops – and it'd probably stop better than any other eV
Replacing fossil fuel with hydrogen seems like an ideal solution to make transportation environmentally friendly and to provide a backup for intermittent energy sources like solar and wind. But how environmentally friendly is hydrogen really? And how
Sea Launch was a launch provider who offered launched to geostationary orbit from a floating launch platform in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. This enabled them to deliver satellites closer to the target orbit than any of their competitors, using r
In huge news for zero-emissions aviation, Chinese company CATL is set to go to mass production on a "condensed battery" it says can squeeze in more than twice as much energy as a Tesla Model Y battery, by weight – while being safe enough to fly wit
An RDE is theoretically more efficient than conventional deflagrative combustion by as much as 25%. The concept has been known for some time but is finally making progress due to new materials/modeling.
