NASA Concept Plane Designed to Fly Sideways - Core77 - 0 views

  •  
    "The "Supersonic bi-directional flying wing" has wings of alternating length at each compass point and therefore can solve both situations, by taking off in one orientation, then essentially flying sideways when it's time to go supersonic. I'd like to see video of how this happens in motion, but from what I can see in the stills, it looks like the dual engines up top determine the direction of flight, and that the rest of the plane rotates around them.

  •

And to think...these are the Noble Creatures that Monsanto and other giant pesticide makers are destroying with neonicotinoid pesticides with the full approval of the Environmental Protection Agency. GMO crops sprayed with glyphosate and other deadly pesticides are killing these beautiful bees, bats, hummingbirds and so many other insects. Can't we just figure out a Monsantocide and save these beauties?"
