Rocket Engine

A rocket engine, or simply "rocket", is a jet engine[1] that uses only stored propellant mass for forming its high speed propulsive jet. Rocket engines are reaction engines and obtain thrust in accordance with Newton's third law. Since they need no external material to form their jet, rocket engines can be used for spacecraft propulsion as well as terrestrial uses, such as missiles. Most rocket engines are internal combustion engines, although non-combusting forms also exist.

Space Car

SPACE CAR: The Blueprint of Omni-Directional Magnetic Levitation Car by Jose L. Guardo Jr (DON) Chief Maglev Architect MAGLEV VISION CORP.and CEO of SPACEBAR TECH SPACE CAR: The Blueprint of Omni-Directional Magnetic Levitation Car is an OPEN SOURCE CODE for those who want to build a Maglev Car using materials and technologies readily available in the market to date. Here you will learn the basic principle of spin stabilized magnetic suspension, Halbach or Stetler Array, Rotary Magnetic Disc, Guardo Levitation Field, Guardo Tubular Shaped Motor, SEMA Motor, Lenz Law and Superconductivity.

Dragonfly UMR-1

Devising yet another ingenious way for people to accidentally kill themselves (or as the British euphemistically call it "death by misadventure"-damn you, British, and your clever way with words!), Trek Aerospace is working on a line of personal Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) aircraft, including the Dragonfly UMR-1, and our personal fave, the Springtail EFV-4A (pictured above). Let's just hope they can build one that goes more than 18 inches off the ground.

Space Elevator

A space elevator space transportation system. The main component would be a cable anchored to the surface and extending into space. The design would permit vehicles to travel along the cable from a planetary surface, such as the Earth's, directly into space or orbit, without the use of large rockets. An Earth-based space elevator would consist of a cable with one end attached to the surface near the equator and the other end in space beyond geostationary orbit (35,800 km altitude). The competing forces of gravity, which is stronger at the lower end, and the outward/upward centrifugal force, which is stronger at the upper end, would result in the cable being held up, under tension, and stationary over a single position on Earth.

MC-130J Commando II and CV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft

MC-130J Commando II and CV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft The introduction to service of the CV-22 at RAF Mildenhall resurrects a vertical lift capability not seen here since the retirement of the MH-53 Pave Low helicopter. The CV- 22 has the capability to take off, hover and land vertically when required but also the speed and agility of a conventional turboprop aircraft in forward flight enabling it to operate over greater distances compared to a helicopter.

Magnetic Levitation

We have always thought of airplanes as the fastest mode of transportation. As it travels thousands of miles in an hour we do not mind the flight delays and also the risk in flying. There is no other alternative to planes that can travel such a great distance in a minimum amount of time. Buses, cars, boats and even conventional trains seem to be too slow in comparison to planes. Now a new transportation mode has occurred that can clearly compete with planes in both speed and safety. 

They are called MAGLEV trains. The full form and the basic working principle of MAGLEV are called Magnetic Levitation. The principle of magnetic levitation is that a vehicle can be suspended and propelled on a guidance track made with magnets. The vehicle on top of the track may be propelled with the help of a linear induction motor. Although the vehicle does not use steel wheels on a steel rail they are still referred to as trains as by definition they are a long chain of vehicles which travel in the same direction. This is the definition of a MAGLEV Train.(The Patent documents for "Magnetic Levitation" is in "Related Patents-Page")
