  • Dark Roasted : American Supersonic Airliners: Race for a Dream
    It all started in 1952 with small-scale studies of SST designs by Boeing, but things heated up significantly when in 1962 the governments of Britain and France decided to join efforts in the creation of a supersonic "Concorde" airplane. The intrepid Russians also came up with the Tu-144 (no less capable, but plagued by accidents). The American government nearly panicked and responded with its own program SCAT (Supersonic Commercial Air Transport) in 1963, which got endorsement from President Kennedy himself. The race for dominating supersonic airways was on. (At that time it was believed that all future commercial aircraft would be supersonic). The goal was to produce a commercial aircraft capable of carrying 250 passengers (twice as many as the Concorde) a

  • Inflight Safety - Summary
    I first entered the aviation industry in 1983 when I joined British Airways as Cabin Crew. During my induction course, I was taught safety drills and procedures and basic surival principles, subjects which were refreshed annually thereafter. I flew for seven years on both shorthaul and longhaul routes, on Tridents, TriStars (L10-11s) and Boeing 737s, 747s & 757s. In all that time, on all those aircraft, I never had anything even remotely approaching an emergency - but I was always prepared, just in case!

  • Making the sky searchable
    In other words, their computer program will make night sky searchable. The team is organizing and mixing images coming from astronomical databases with images coming from 'all kinds of cameras, amateur telescopes, large ground-based telescopes, and space telescopes such as the Hubble Space Telescope.' This specialized search engine is still in beta-version, but is available to both professional and amateur astronomers.

  • Sentient Developments: Astrosociobiology article on Wikipedia deleted
    Astrosociobiology Astrosociobiology (also referred to as exosociobiology, extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI), and xenosociology) is the speculative scientific study of extraterrestrial civilizations and their possible social characteristics and developmental tendencies. The field involves the convergence of astrobiology, sociobiology and evolutionary biology. Hypothesized comparisons between human civilizations and those of extraterrestrials are frequently posited, placing the human situation in the same context as other extraterrestrial intelligences. Whenever possible, astrosociobiologists describe only those social characteristics that are thought to be common (or highly probable) to all civilizations. Since no extraterrestrial civilizations have ever b

    # What is this site about? Our on-line system is a detailed sky map. We generate the map automatically using our database with the positions and basic characteristics of space objects. You can get more details from Getting Started. # Could I see the real photographies of the sky? Yes. A Click on SDSS button at the left upper corner (SDSS) generates a real high resolution Sky Survey image of the area that you have been browsing. Another way to look at different sky images is to go to Astro Photo. # What is SDSS? Simply put, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) is the most ambitious astronomical survey ever undertaken. When completed, it will provide detailed optical images covering more than a quarter of the sky, and a 3-dimensional map of about a million gal

    This utility permits the user to convert latitude and longitude between decimal degrees and degrees, minutes, and seconds. For convenience, a link is included to the National Geodetic Survey's NADCON program, which allows conversions between the NAD83 / WGS84 coordinate system and the older NAD27 coordinate system. NAD27 coordinates are presently used for broadcast authorizations and applications. This utility requires that Javascript be enabled to perform the calculations. The older non-Javascript version remains available.
    This program may be used to convertlatitude and longitude coordinates in degrees - minutes - seconds to decimal degrees.or to convert decimal degrees to degrees - minutes - seconds.

  • Eric's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Idea: steampunk star wars
    Inspired by this neat little project, I decided I wanted to reimagine the Star Wars universe in a steampunk context. I know, whenever anyone reimagines anything, they either make it a) adult and edgy (99%) or b) steampunk (1%), so I'm not getting any originality points, but it's still a pretty exciting idea for me. Meaning I'll be bored of it in a week and start drawing dogs wearing hats or something.
