Slowmotion Landings

Pilot Dynan Plane Spotting

Pilot Dynan Plane Spotting

Now this is something you defiantly don’t see everyday, aircraft landing in slowmotion.  Pilot Dynan has become one of the professional plane spotters on the planet and it started with the love of aircraft.  With the positioning of multiple camera  angles at various airports, he captures a unique view of aviation.  Also he gets his audience involved by challenging you to guess the sound of the aircraft in a segment at the end of every video. So let’s go fly with Pilot Dynan and experience some of his HD world of aviation.

From Pilot Dynan:   Footage from Copenhagen Kastup, (planes) 0:00 Icelandair / Boeing 757-300, 0:24 – SAS / Boeing 737-700, 0:40 – SAS / Airbus A340-300, 1:07 – Emirates / Boeing 777-300.  Camera: Sony SLT a57 with a Sigma 150-500mm Lens + Sigma 2X Converter (=1000mm)  Tripod: Manfrotto 546B with a 504HD head.

Globe Backyard TV- Europe and Friends

New series “Globe Backyard TV”. We’re going to have some fun, with all the stuff coming out it’s like a can of worms.  I remember Alan Simpson making a comment, if you can’t go along with what politicians and or officials are saying “stick your finger down your throat and give ’em the “Green Weenie”, meaning FU!  So sit back and enjoy some old Tube action.

World’s First 3D Printed Metal Gun

3D-Printed-Metal-Gun-Components-Disassembled-Low-Res

Introducing metal 3D printing to the world as a viable solution for fully functional firearm prototypes.  Usability, durability and accuracy of DMLS as a functioning prototype or product, and this gun is a successful demonstration of each of those attributes.  Its chamber sees pressure above 20,000 psi every time it is fired proving the material integrity provided by DMLS technology. The small components needed for the 1911 series gun proves DMLS can meet tolerances and accuracy.  We’re changing people’s perspective about what 3D Printing can do and showing the technology is at a place where we can do this kind of thing and succeed.   This technology is capable of fully functioning assemblies at full-scale.

In the video you will notice the slide to hesitate mid return to battery, started with a lighter pound recoil spring and have since changed to the recommended 16 lb spring.   Also polished the surface where the back of the bullet meets the slide.  Tomorrows 500 round test should tell us if we have corrected this – please check back!

This is the future and science leads the way, first a metal gun, then engine parts, airplane parts and space which already NASA is installing a 3D printer on the ISS to help improve part availability instead of waiting for the next launch.  The future is here today and like I’ve said Pod, science does not care wait times we live in only truth and this has just changed manufacturing where life will be more affordable.  Our existence will be more pleasurable, you gotta love science.

DMLS Technology

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) process.  Solid Concepts provides this additive manufacturing and 3D printing technology to produce metal prototypes and production parts in only hours.   DMLS service utilizes a wide variety of metal and alloy materials to create strong durable parts from 3D CAD data without the need of tooling.

3-D Printing on Station

Made in Space

Made in Space

Public Affairs Officer Lori Meggs interviews Niki Werkheiser, 3-D print project manager at Marshall Space Flight Center, about how the new technology may be used on the International Space Station. The printer would be the first 3-D printer in microgravity. The first printer is a demonstration test and will be installed inside the Microgravity Science Glovebox.
Tools and space parts can be printed for use on the station eliminating the need to manufacture and deliver the gear for launch aboard a cargo spacecraft. Flight controllers could upload a CAD file to the space station for printing complex parts. A crew member could then assemble the newly printed parts to build tools, repair broken gear and even assemble nano-satellites.

During future long-term missions beyond low-Earth orbit a crew will not have the benefit of deliveries from a resupply craft. The new 3-D printing technology could benefit a potential mission to an asteroid or Mars.

World’s largest solar plant

170,000 heliostats

170,000 heliostats Ivanpah Solar Power Facility

OK looks like the solar industry has reach a tipping point meaning making it more affordable to put to work.  With the tax advantages  Wal-Mart Stores, Kohl’s, Safeway and Whole Foods Market have installed solar panels on roofs of their stores to generate electricity on a large-scale.  Also Goldman Sachs has been purchasing large amounts of land out in the desert of Nevada so far 40,000 acres.  Not long ago this land was selling for $500.00 per acre now today that same land can see a bid for $10,000.  This is why utility companies, silicon valley start-ups, European and Israeli energy firms… all are pushing hard to buy up available Western land.  This is going to be huge for the economy once all this gets rolling.  The thing here though is 85% of the land in Nevada is Federal Land, this is an expensive, labor-intensive game that requires millions of dollars (preferably tens of millions), mountains of paper work and dedicated scouts to eyeball all the potential sites.  That’s why industry experts at Emerging Energy Research of Cambridge, Mass., think “Big Solar” could become a $45 billion market over the next decade or so.

So let’s have a look, a massive solar project in the Mojave Desert will hook up to the power grid and could start supplying electricity to homes by the end of the year.  The plant has 170,000 heliostats, each with the capacity to power one home.  Some good news for a change, one of these heliostats reflects 95% of the sun’s energy, now we’re cooking and what better place to do the baking then the desert.  See Pod science will forever move us forward, one question though;  could we cook some bankers up there?
