million Google Lunar X Prize 6-2317:
To win the $20 million Google Lunar X Prize, a private company must land
on the moon, have its spacecraft travel 500 meters across the lunar surface,
and transmit high-definition video back to Earth. It looks like a company
by the name of MoonEx might actually do it. The magic secret to make the
project all happen is a rocket engine they designed call the Rutherford
engine. Does the name Ernest Rutherford sound familiar? He's was a New
Zealand-born British physicist who came to be known as the father of nuclear
physics. One of his students was a person by the name of Niels Bohr who
used to argue with Einstein about quantum physics.

Inside Boeing's massive new factory to build the composite wings for the
new 777X, a machine will lay up fiber composite tape for the upper a right
wing skin for one of the jets giant wings.The machine can rapidly lay up
20 tape strips of this composite one layer at a time. It's
a lot like plywood, but a lot more complex. The building, which represents
a billion dollar investment by Boeing into its Puget Sound base, was commissioned
just a year ago. Over the last 13 months, it has been turned into a
functioning factory, complete with machines, to get the 777X program up
and running. Next door is Boeing's main Everett factory where the first
777X will be assembled next year.The first flight is slated for 2019 and
first delivery to airlines in 2020.

Crazy weather this year is setting records all over the place. Pop-up thunderstorms
can change or delay a flight with the best made plans. I read an article
a while ago and the writer said that every flight is a new experience.
With a little wind and turbulence, that saying is bound to come true. The
tankers and cargo planes shooting touch and go's at Pease can add another
Sometimes the ride to the airport can be a new experience... what does
435 hp sound like?
