Airplane will Now Be Able To Fold It Wings While Flying With The Help Of Nasa's New Design

The National Aeronautics Space Agency (NASA) is trying to invent a foldable wing aircraft after being inspired from  incredible nosedive  of the hawk  when it folds its wings. NASA doesn’t want to have controlled dives, but there are many other benefits to this unique design, such as increasing the efficiency and capabilities of the aircraft. NASA name  the design Spanwise Adaptive Wing (SAW). Until now, articulating wings on aircraft was done to optimize parking area and to make them fit into smaller hangars. the articulated  wings also helps  for easier movement within  the airport infrastructure. But NASA wants to use smaller and adjustable wing ends along with more precise specifics  articulation and control with the ability  of changing position dynamically to create the perfect balance between lift and yaw control that is  needed during different flight conditions. One use of this concept idea will be in supersonic aircraft. When the aircraft is flying at very high speeds, it  crea…
Mercedes-Benz has just revealed its first luxury pickup truck, and it has literally broken the internet courtesy it’s stylishly rugged design and exceptionally powerful engine all coming under the trusted and envied name of Mercedes.
The first model which is a green truck is made for off-road and heavy duty stuff. The other white truck is made to be more of a high-end luxury model with a gorgeous wooden interior.

This Russian Nuclear Weapon Is 2000 Times Stronger Than The Bomb That Hit Hiroshima

It looks like another cold war is on the horizons with the battle in Syria and Iraq getting worse each day and in the process, expanding the cleavage between the world powers. It has also triggered,increased the insecurity between the enemies fighting or covertly secretly supporting the fighters in Syria and Iraq, triggering over the top defensive measures against each other and a serious concern for another arms race.

And supporting this argument is the recent news of the Russian army announcing a massive new nuclear weapon. The new nuclear bomb comes with RS-28 Sarmat missile which has the ability of travelling at a speed of 4.3 miles per second while carrying over 40 megatons of nuke explosives. For its destructive capabilities, NATO termed the missile “Satan 2”. The weapon is considered to be capable of devastating an area of the size of France and iit is also  2,000 times more power than the bombs that ravaged Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. The missile is reported to have a range o…

Iran New Suicide Drone

Iran unveiled its ‘suicide drone’  on Wednesday. The news was announced by the elite Revolutionary Guards saying that the Iranian suicide drone  was capable of delivering explosives to both the sea and the land targets. The Iranian military will primarily use the new suicide drone for it  maritime surveillance. The Tasnim news agency, considered pro-Guards, reported that the suicide drone cannot carry missiles:

The suicide drone has not been designed to be armed with missiles, but it can carry heavy payloads of explosives for combat missions to launch suicide attacks. flying at a high drifting speed near the surface of the water, the aircraft can collide with the target and destroy it, either a vessel or an onshore command center.

The Iranian suicide drone can fly as low as half a meter above the water and can attain a speed of 250 kilometers per hour. The drone can go as high as 900 meters.
The news release only included images of the unmanned aerial vehicle on the ground. No video or pi…

This Gadget Can Allow You To Walk Up Vertically With Its Manually Powered Elevator

Vertiwalk is a small compact manual lift that can take you to the upper storey without having to navigate the treacherous staircases. This manual gadget   can move you to the upper floor using only 10% of the energy that you are suppose to use in climbing the stairs.

 Vertiwalk is a pulley-operated elevator powered by your upper and lower limbs. The engineers who design this manual lift believe that it will come in handy as the migration towards highly-populated cities , and the cities keep expanding. Vertiwalk is a hybrid between stairs and elevator. The Dutch designers have designed the pulley-operated manual lift at the Rombout Frieling Lab in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Estimates predicted that more than two billion people will migrate towards the cities in the next 25 years. With the house rent price on a  perpetual rise, the people have no option but to make the most of whatever space is available to them. The riders propel themselves up manually using their arms and legs. The users of …

Intel has started manufacturing their own commercial and professional drones.called the Falcon 8+, and it vows to better than all its competitors!         Credit : Intel
Falcon 8+ commercial drone is created  for industrial inspection, surveying and mapping and is an upgrade on the previous AscTec Falcon 8 drone. It is a V-form octocopter entailing high stediness, accurate  GPS and state of the art flight control electronics and components. This helps the drone achieve the best weight-to-payload ratio, with an empty weight of 1.1 kg and a maximum payload of 0.8 kg making it ideal for some of the most intense field applications.
It predecessor, t Falcon 8 already had amazing gadgets such as Intel’s RealSense cameras and the company’s 3D-mapping technology to avoid collision . Building on this,  Falcon 8+ has added on Intel’s latest water-resistant ground Cockpit system, that allows the drone better control and fortit…

2016 Physics Nobel Prize Goes To British Trio For Study Of Exotic Matter

This year Nobel Prize in Physics went to three British physicists who worked at US universities on revealing the secrets of exotic matter. The three laureates will divide the 8 million Swedish Krona prize (US $931,000) among them in accordance to their contributions. A half of this money will go to David Thouless of the University of Washington, and the other half will be divided between Duncan Haldane of Princeton University and Michael Kosterlitz of Brown University.
The Nobel Foundation issued a statement this Tuesday on their website,  “This year’s laureates opened the door on an unknown world where matter can assume strange states. They have used advanced mathematical methods to study unusual phases, or states, of matter, such as superconductors, superfluids or thin magnetic films.” What Did The Physicists Work On? At the beginning of the 1970s, Kosterlitz and Thouless nullified the theory at that time which stated that superconductivity is not possible in extremely thin layers. Thes…
