SONIC BOOMS! Supersonic SonicBAT Research Will Rumble Space Coast In August

Supersonic research will rumble Space Coast in August

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. - The Space Coast could experience more than 30 sonic booms in August as NASA conducts a two-week investigation into how turbulence affects the rumbling created as aircraft fly faster than the speed of sound, the space agency said Monday. Researchers from NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center and Langley Research Center in Virginia will conduct a series of tests as part of the Sonic Booms in Atmospheric Turbulence flights, or SonicBAT, at Kennedy Space Center starting Monday, Aug. 21. The project will help researchers understand how atmospheric turbulence can influence the sonic booms residents often hear after SpaceX lands its Falcon 9 boosters at Cape Canaveral or when the Space Shuttle would return to Earth. SonicBAT is in its second round of environment testing, last summer the NASA group tested supersonic flights in the desert near Edwards Air Force Base in California. Now the team is hoping to use Florida’s humid atmosphere to continue its investigation. "Turbulence can make sonic booms quieter, or it can make them louder,” Ed Haering, SonicBAT's principal investigator said. “Last summer we tested in the hot, dry climate of Edwards Air Force Base. We know that humidity can make sonic booms louder, so we need to test some place wetter, and Kennedy fits that bill.” Source

SMOKE OF SATAN ON BOARD! Smell of Sulfur In Cockpit Forces Spirit Airlines Flight To Land!

Jet lands in Fort Lauderdale as pilots smell ‘unidentifiable odor’ in the cockpit
As a Spirit Airlines flight from Guatemala City landed in Fort Lauderdale Monday afternoon, the pilot reported an “unidentifiable odor” in the plane’s cockpit, officials said.  Despite media reports of smoke on board, Spirit spokesman Paul Berry said “it was just an odor.”  “No smoke was ever seen,” he said. “Everybody was fine.”  There were 148 passengers aboard Flight 244, which landed at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport at its scheduled time of 4:30 p.m. No one was injured, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport spokesman Greg Meyer said.

Space Fantasy #33: Jeff Bezos' Vision: 'A Trillion Humans In The Solar System'!

Jeff Bezos' Vision: 'A Trillion Humans in the Solar System'  Bezos said the Apollo program was inspirational, helping to fuel his desire and passion to make a difference in space exploration.

"I have won this lottery," Bezos said. "It's a gigantic lottery, and it's called Amazon.com. And I'm using my lottery winnings to push us a little further into space."

Bezos said he is not in the camp of the "Plan B argument" for the colonization of space — that one day Earth is going to be destroyed or uninhabitable, so we better have another place to live.

"I hate that idea … I find it very unmotivating," Bezos said. "We have sent robotic probes now to every planet in this solar system, and believe me, this [Earth] is the best one."

While we should and will colonize space (via the harnessing of solar energy and asteroid resources), Bezos said, there's also a need to avoid stagnation here on Earth by putting control…

Nice Airport: easyJet Employee Punches Complaining Passenger In The Face!

Nice Airport, an employee punches a passenger holding a baby in the face for complaining about easyJet flight delay  The event took place at the end of a day of stress for more than 150 passengers. They had been due to travel on flight #U22122 from Nice-Cote d’Azur airport at 11am. The airline says it “was delayed departing Nice due to a technical issue with the aircraft”. The original aircraft had arrived from Luton slightly behind schedule. Then there was a fuelling issue, which required another aircraft to be flown out to Nice. So instead of arriving at Luton noon, passengers were obliged to spend the entire day at Nice airport. Witnesses said that the apparent victim of the assault had complained about the lack of baby food and places for passengers with special assistance needs to sit.Anna McCrum: “absolute chaos – member of staff just punched a passenger in the face at Nice airport. Waited for 12 hours for this.” Air Live >>>>>
