Blue Origin’s rocket makes historic landing back to earth

00 “I can assure you here in mission control in West Texas, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house,” Jeff Bezos described the scene after the successful landing of the rocket, New Shepard. “It was one of the greatest moments of my life, and my teammates here at Blue Origin I could see feel the exact same way.” Space rockets currently tend to be one-trick ponies, launched up into space, breaking barriers and then falling back…

New Copenhagen Gate is a cutting-edge bridge unlike anything you have ever seen

New Copenhagen Gate is a cutting-edge bridge unlike anything you have ever seen

00 Biking over bridges is difficult, while fighting the forces of incline and gravity you are also struggling to avoid pedestrians and other bikers. Fighting to keep your cadence may also be hard with the tiny distraction of being suspended above 213 feet above water. That’s what the new Copenhagen Gate aims to revive after a tumultuous construction halt. <img class=”img-responsive lazy” itemprop=”image” src=”http://interestingengineering.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/CopehagenGateway_WHOR.jpg” alt=”CopehagenGateway_WHOR” /> <img class=”img-responsive lazy” itemprop=”image” src=”http://interestingengineering.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Overview_WHOR.jpg” alt=”Overview_WHOR” /> The project was…

NASA’s Space Launch System Passes Design Review

NASA’s Space Launch System Passes Design Review

00 Remember the Space Race? Long gone are the days when American power and ingenuity spared nothing to beat any and all to the moon and beyond. Back in 2011, after spending slightly more than three and half years of service time in space, the U.S. Space Shuttle fleet was grounded for good. Since then, NASA has had to rely on the Russians to get astronauts up to the International Space Station. In the near…

Someone just made Thor’s Hammer and he’s the only one who can lift it

00 Allen Pan of the Sufficiently Advanced YouTube channel decided it was time to build a Thor’s hammer for himself. The first question that will come to your mind is perhaps this; is he the only one who can lift it? And the answer is yes! He took his hammer to the streets and challenged others to lift it from the ground. No one could successfully lift the hammer and the crowd watched in awe as Allen lifted…

Check out the 10 fastest aircraft of all time

Check out the 10 fastest aircraft of all time

00 Jet airliners like an Airbus A320 or a Boeing 777, can fly at speeds that reach over 900 km/h. And that is really REALLY fast, so much that these aircraft cross countries and even continents in just a few hours. But there are certain aircraft that can fly at a much faster speeds. However, these flights are reserved only to the military and special government operations, and they can fly at over 7,000 km/h! Extremely high speeds,…

DARPA’s new helicopter model can land on almost any surface

DARPA’s new helicopter model can land on almost any surface

00 DARPA has done it again. DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, are famously known for their research on humanoid robots or perhaps real-life Terminators. In fact, earlier this year, they organized their famous annual robot competition, the DARPA Robotics Challenge. This time it is not about humanoid robots but rather, it is a helicopter that utilizes an interesting piece of technology referred to as the adaptive robotic landing gear. Helicopters are convenient, which…

New HD camera waterproof drone is aiming to revolutionize underwater photography

New HD camera waterproof drone is aiming to revolutionize underwater photography

00 Up until now, little progress has been made in terms of underwater photography. If it is possible to obtain good quality images underwater, it is also important to remember that this type of technology is still not accessible to many people due to its high cost. But with a new drone that is absolutely blowing up on Kickstarter – reaching more than 10 times it’s $50,000 goal – it seems that this is about to change….
