Pure Awesome
« on: January 21, 2007, 10:26:37 AM »
I didn't think it was real when I first saw it.

In the category of truth is more awesome than fiction, chances are, neither will you :-p

It's a methane-oxygen rocket engine being developed for NASA, for use on the CEV to bring it back from the moon.  Interactions between the supersonic exhaust and the air create the 'shock diamonds'.

That's a beautiful ray-gun. It's pleasant how hard work of sciencests can produce results that turn out to be suprisingly nice also from the aestethic point of view.

Now we just need to fix it onto one of those walker mechs they're playing with in Japan ... an arm mount should be fine ... and we'll be getting somewhere.

I think I saw a story during the week that they'd successfully tested a mach 10 scram jet in Oz. Also pretty neat.
