Sport Floor Effect Airplane: Seagleider - US Company builds emission-free Ecranoplan
Italy unveils plan for new floor at the Colosseum
Work on a wooden, retractable floor at the Roman landmark is expected to be finished by 2023. At present, the 2,000-year-old monument has no floor. It was removed by archaeologists in the 19th Century, exposing the underground network of tunnels where gladiators and animals were held before the Roman blood sports began.Mr Franceschini said the "extraordinary" new floor would allow visitors to "see the majesty of the Colosseum" from its centre.
with 290 km / h Fly over the waves fly: So the Seaglider islands and coastal cities should connect and the whole thing without fossil fuels.
is really CO2-free flying is a big challenge. Even with trucks and cars, taking the batteries leads to a noticeable increase in weight, with an aircraft that is much more. A solution are ekranoplane, so-called soil effect aircraft. Such a model, the Seagleider, the US company has introduced Regent. There are already pre-orders for $ 465 million.
shortly over the waves
A floor effect airplane rises only just above the ground and "rides" on a kind of rotating air wave, which generates it with its stub wings. This pillow between the ground and aircraft causes a ekrano plan to spend a lot of less energy than a real aircraft. In the USSR, most of the Ecranoplane were built. First for the medical and courier service along the big streams, later very large military ekrano plane were built. With them the soil effect was used to transport a very high payload on missiles.
Overnight Energy: EPA takes major step to battle climate change
MONDAY AGAIN. Welcome to Overnight Energy, your source for the day's energy and environment news. Please send tips and comments to Rachel Frazin at firstname.lastname@example.org . Follow her on Twitter: @RachelFrazin . Reach Zack Budryk at email@example.com or follow him on Twitter: @BudrykZack . Signup for our newsletter and others HERE. Today we're looking at the EPA's latest move on greenhouse gases, the chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee's request on tailpipe emissions, and a lawsuit over a federal permit for pipeline construction.
Today's plans aim, above all, to achieve high speed on the water without being subject to the restrictions on aviation. The disadvantage of the Ekranoplan is that it can only be used over flat undeveloped terrain, in practice the water or ice surfaces are. A ekranoplan therefore makes booting and ferry competition as aircraft.
Fast entry into the E-Age
of the Seagleider can start from a normal pier, then scrumps like a ship on the open water and accelerates there. He should reach a top speed of 290 km / h. The range with today's battery technology is 290 kilometers, but it is likely to increase in the advances of battery technology.
The company wants to operate specifically between large hinges like Boston and New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco and also serve shorter and lucrative routes such as New York City to the Hamptons or between the islands of Hawaii. Compared to a ferry, the Seaglider would be much faster and he does not need an airfield and no aircraft. The noise pollution is also low, close to the destination, the Seaguilder can move into boot mode.
Germany unveils more ambitious carbon emission reduction plan after court ruling
German officials announced a higher target for carbon emission reductions Wednesday after a constitutional court ruled a 2019 emissions law was inefficient.Chancellor Angela Merkel's government will now target a reduction of 65 percent by the end of the decade and 88 percent by 2040, Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said, according to Reuters. The government has also moved up its target for nearly net-zero emissions five years, from 2050 to 2045. The 2019 emissions law at issue set a target of cutting emissions 55 percent by 2019 compared to 1990 levels.
in Russia regularly introduces designs of larger ekranoplane, which can quickly bring big loads across the sea. A desirable customer would be the Russian military, but so far there was no order. The really big market for Ekranoplane would, however, would be the island world of the Pacific, there is already a small water taxi being built. The Airfish 8 ("") is based on research on Dr. med. Alexander Lippisch.
Lippisch is now largely unknown, but belongs to the large aircraft designers of the 20th century. He is considered a "father" of the Delta leaf. In World War II, the missile interceptor Knesserschmitt Me 163 "Komet" was based on his "Project X". After the Second World War, the record aircraft convair XF-92, the Jäger Convair F-106 and the supersonic strategic Bomber Convair B-58 from his designs.
The Seaglider is unique in that it is purely electrically powered as the first model.
