We're sure coming on strong to the second century mark of powered flight.

*Do you think anything will change for the better?
*About when do you see these changes?
*What are you doing by then?
*How about which country is likely to be/stay on top?
*How long will NASA focus on space?
(to me it isn't the last frontier.)

The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

The future of Aerospace is low cost space propulsion systems. With that you will see private enterprises in space, and then you will see new and better ways to explore the far reaches of outer space.

As for in the atmosphere, low emission jet engines, high technology navigation systems (point to point), and sonic speed, long range, jumbo aircraft.


As you can see almost all of these things depend on engines.

>>*Do you think anything will change for the better?<<
Yes

>>*About when do you see these changes?<<
Privatization of space in 20 years at least.

>>*What are you doing by then?<<
Hopefully working on the space systems.

>>*How about which country is likely to be/stay on top?<<
Obviously the USA.

>>*How long will NASA focus on space?

Even with private companies, you will still need government funded research.

I've read articles that various aero-space companies including NASA are trying to create and make supersonic flights more of an everyday practicality. Their working with designs on how to either silence the sonic boom (the major concern) and other technical problems I not to sure how to explain. I have heard that Boeing is working on the new 787. Their toying with the idea of a flying wing (like the B2) for commerical use. Their shooting for an 800 PAX capacity with the range of or greater than the up-to-date 747. But these are only near projects for our planet. I have a slight wonder if sooner or later that commerial space flight to and from the Moon or Mars might be a reality.

Ziggy,

Do you have any info about the 787 project? I've seen some tech studies, i.e about cruciform planforms which are likely to be used, but nothing detailed about the plane. It's supposed to be a transsonic plane, right? Heard something about M0.98 cruise speed...
