    What New York City Would Look Like on Other
    Gear  |  Pic  
    Artist Nickolay Lamm has created a series of illustrations with the help of Marilyn Vogel that depict New York City would look like on other planets. She has a Ph.D. in Astrobiology, worked at NASA Ames for five years, and now teaches science at the university level. The below is on Mars.
    "The Red Planet has a cold, thin carbon dioxide atmosphere about 100 times thinner than our own. The atmospheric lack of density is actually a major stumbling block to getting objects to the surface, since parachutes are insufficient. The oxidizing chemistry on Mars means that immigrants would see a very rusted Statue of Liberty if they were ever to stumble upon such a sight. Fine dust particles would also quickly cover New York during one of the planet’s frequent dust storms."
    Aftre more, you can see New York City on Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

    John McGinnis trying to reinvent the personal airplane with the help of his father, son, and a rotating crew of about two dozen volunteers. He calls the plane Synergy. McGinnis says Synergy could be cheaper, quieter, and, at more than 40 mpg, three times as fuel-efficient.
    Synergy’s wings bend upward and into a box shape for minimum drag and maximum efficiency. The top half of each wing swoops behind the body to function as a tail while providing greater in-flight stability. The double-box tail design also makes gliding easier by counteracting tornado-like vortices at the wings’ tips. And instead of a front-mounted propeller, an impeller placed behind the bullet-shaped body quiets noise while adding thrust.
    1) A 200hp turbodiesel engine expels heat below the impeller, adding thrust.
    2) Large wings allow slower takeoffs and landings.
    3) Box tails create airflow patterns that reduce drag and increase flight stability.
    4) An autopilot computer can land Synergy at a nearby runway during an emergency; a ballistic parachute can also be deployed.

    Watch the video of Synergy after more.
