Scientists remotely control live turtles

Scientists remotely control live turtles:

Researchers have been able to non-invasively control the walking paths of red-eared slider...
Last year, much to the delight of squeamish people everywhere, scientists were successfully able to remotely control the paths traveled by live cockroaches. They did so by wirelessly stimulating the insects’ antennae and cerci sensory organs. Now, a group of scientists from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have reported success in controlling the paths of walking turtles. Fortunately for the reptiles, the KAIST researchers’ methods were considerably less invasive than those used on the cockroaches.

ECNAM REVEALS THE ‘ASTORE’ NEXT-GENERATION LIGHT SPORT AIRCRAFT AT AERO 2013, FRIEDRICHSHAFEN.

The Tecnam Astore is an all new two seat, low wing aeroplane that offers superlative performance and value.  

 

Combining beautiful Italian styling, the latest technological innovations, higher standards of comfort and very low purchase and operating costs, the Tecnam Astore has been developed by Tecnam's renowned Head of Aircraft Design, Professor Luigi Pascale.

 

For 65 years Tecnam has built its reputation through the development of innovative, stylish and affordable aeroplanes for all aspects of General Aviation flying. What could be more fitting in this special anniversary year than for Professor Pascale to name his latest creation in honour of his first production aircraft, The P48 Astore.

 

The Tecnam 'Astore' design affords the pilot the smoothest and most pleasurable flight with innovations such as an Apple iPad® mini supplied with each aircraft as standard. The Levil G Mini, using its WiFi connection, provides a full Primary Flight Display on the iPad® mini using compatible third party applications such as Air Navigation Pro or similar.  Additionally, the pre-installed dedicated app will compute the actual Weight and Balance, provide checklists and include all the Pilot Operating Handbook sections. Everything at the piots fingertips!

 

Tecnam's passion to make the flying experience as enjoyable as possible includes a new ergonomically designed interior allowing for enhanced all round visibility, control and switches that can be easily reached and the use of softer materials affording a more comfortable flight.

 

Low operating costs are assured through Tecnam's close association with Rotax. All of this results in a remarkably efficient aeroplane, with customers being offered a choice of how they want their Tecnam Astore' powered, be it with the Rotax 912ULS, the all new 912iS or the Rotax 914 engine. Operators may choose both MOGAS and AVGAS to fuel their Astore.

 

"We have built our reputation at Tecnam on producing aeroplanes that offer outstanding value, beauty and efficiency" said Paolo Pascale, Tecnam's Managing Director. "What better way to celebrate Tecnam's 65th anniversary than by offering our customers the very best next-generation LSA, the Tecnam Astore, designed to make flying a Tecnam aeroplane a most enjoyable flying experience".

Boeing’s original 787 battery testing pointed to overcharging as main concern | Components content from ATWOnline

Extensive testing on lithium ion batteries
during the 787 certification process led
Boeing to believe that "significant
overcharging" was the only occurrence that
would cause the batteries to vent fire,
according to a senior Boeing executive.
Testifying Tuesday in Washington DC at a
US National Transportation Safety Board
(NTSB) hearing, Boeing VP and 787 chief
project engineer Mike Sinnett said testing
done in 2006 and 2007 "used what was the
state of the art at the time" to determine
what could potentially cause the battery to
fail and vent fire. Using a "nail penetration
test" to intentionally cause damage to the
lithium ion battery, "the only time we were
able to make a [battery] cell vent with fire
was significant overcharging," Sinnett said
