NASA’s X-48C hybrid plane successfully completes first flight

 

Right now your looking at the future design for planes you’ll be riding a decade from now. This new look is supposed to be super efficient and cost-effective. It will be able to save somewhere between 20 to 30 percent of fuel, increase fuel capacity, and provides us with a quieter ride. NASA  and its partner Boeing,  successfully completed the X-48C hybrid plane’s first test flight proving that the design is at least flyable.

Giant Hydrogen Drone gets a Laser Cannon straight from Pentagon

The “Phantom Eye” project is in its last steps. After completing its designing Boeing has been able to produce a prototype. This unmanned giant drone is able to fly to up to 60,000 feet and stay in the air for over four days. It’s also environmentally friendly as it runs on hydrogen. Better yet, the Ministry of Defense has provided Boeing with a multi-million dollar project in providing this aerial vehicle with  a laser cannon. In the near future, America will have its own missile defense system in the sky exhausting only water.
