Parts Of Missing Malaysian Plane Possibly Burned In Garbage Clean-Up

Réunion Island, east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, has become the focal point of global scrutiny as a suspected a Boeing 777 flaperon, a tattered suitcase and now a door have emerged from the sea. They’re suspected clues in the search for MH370, but has more evidence been unknowingly burned in a trash fire?… » 8/02/15 9:13am 2 minutes ago

Nonsense At The Museum: "The Turbine Went From 0 to 60 Seconds."

You walk through a museum and you stop at an interesting exhibit. “Hey, there’s one of those Chrysler Turbine Cars. Let’s read the sign and see what we can learn.” If you are at the Gilmore Museum near Kalamazoo, this sign is what you will be reading. And what you “learn” will be wrong. » 8/02/15 9:05am 10 minutes ago

There Have Been Four High Profile Airplane Crashes In One Day

No less than four high-profile aviation incidents, three in the UK and one in Colombia, have rocked the aviation world within the last 24 hours. These included the loss of a shadowy Colombian Air Force CASA 235, an Embraer private jet with three of the Bin Laden family on board, a Folland Gnat performing at a huge car… » 8/01/15 4:17pm Yesterday 4:17pm

Watch A B-1B Refuel And Thank The Tanker With A Gorgeous Burner Break

Swing-wings, a sleek and flowing fuselage, and four big GE-F101 turbofans pointing out the back: the B-1B’s silhouette is ominous to say the least. That silhouette is exactly what a tanker crew saw after refueling the “Bone” from their KC-135R Stratotanker, as seen in the video below.… » 8/01/15 3:01pm Yesterday 3:01pm

The McLaren MP4-12C's Doors Are Assholes

In case you haven’t looked at a calendar in a few years, it’s 2015. This means that exotic supercars that were $250k in 2012 have now depreciated down to about $155k. They are great buys if you have the cash and, with the 12C, enjoy looking like a moron while trying to open a car door that doesn’t have handles. » 8/01/15 2:42pm Yesterday 2:42pm

Only Watching The Battle For First Is Missing The Point

Here’s a shot of one of the looniest on-track battles I’ve seen on a race track in a long, long time. It was from last weekend’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Lime Rock, and these Caymans were going at it like their lives depended on it. Neither car was going for the win. No, this was the battle for … » 8/01/15 2:31pm Yesterday 2:31pm

Lifestyles Of The Rich But Not Necessarily Famous

One of the best track days at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) since the track was built was the one held by Corsa Vita. As usual, when they showed up at COTA, I drove back into the pit lane area, loitered, picked my nose, looked confused and wandered around aimlessly. In the process of doing so, I came across some… » 8/01/15 1:36pm Yesterday 1:36pm

Learn How A Titan Missile Is Fired In This Video 

At the height of the Cold War, the United States and Soviet Union had thousands of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles trained on one another. In this video, we get a tour of a Titan missile silo, and learn exactly what would happen when the order came down to launch an attack. http://io9.com/watch-lord-kel... » 8/01/15 12:32pm Yesterday 12:32pm

A car and drones spinning around in a circle is a fantastic light show

Here’s a really cool video that’s a little bit trippy and a lot of bit fun. A car and a fleet of quadcopter drones are outfitted with lights and then made to dance and spin and move around while a camera captures them. It’s light painting but with a car and drones as the paintbrush. » 8/01/15 10:27am Yesterday 10:27am

Being a combat engineer in the army is really bad ass

Being an engineer isn’t usually associated with being a bad ass. In fact, it’s probably one of the gigs furthest from badassery! But here’s a job description that’s totally bad ass: you and your team go into combat zones and build or demolish things while people are shooting at you and looking to kill you. That’s a… » 8/01/15 10:16am Yesterday 10:16am

How We'll Find Out If the Discovered Plane Wreckage Is Part of MH370

It’s been nearly a year and a half since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared and investigators finally have their first big lead in the search. A piece of an aircraft’s wing—a flaperon, to be specific—washed up on Réunion Island, east of Madagascar, some 3000 miles away from where investigators were looking. But… » 8/01/15 10:14am Yesterday 10:14am

We're At Mid-Ohio For The Honda Indy 200

And by “we” I mean me, specifically. I’m here at the legendary Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course all weekend to cover the Honda Indy 200. This is not only the first time I’ve covered an IndyCar race, but the first time I’ve ever been to one, period. I’m pretty excited to be here. » 8/01/15 9:32am Yesterday 9:32am
