Saying "asylum seekers don't contribute to the system" is wrong. If they're integrated correctly they do contribute, and that doesn't cost that much to do. Plenty of jobs nobody in advanced countries want to do, that these people will take up. You also have doctors and engineers among asyl...Jump to post
We're talking about a Concorde like aircraft, which had economy seats (of the day, so not horrible pitch). If you install huge seats/beds in it, the economics that already don't work, fly out of the window !Jump to post
The seat is up for auction, we'll see how much it will end up at. I would take it if it would be a tiny amount of my wealth, otherwise no, I would wait for more. I also heard on the evening news here about "going to orbit", which is distinctly not what is going on here, quite the opposite ...Jump to post
All of the above will probably be necessary, especially if the alternative isn't considered : making less children.Jump to post
The thing that's wrong is the failure to account for climate impact. It'd be nice if we had made more progress on this in the last few decades, but the political support wasn't there, and now we're up against a serious clock. We need to rapidly decarbonize the entire world economy. And when thinkin...Jump to post
Jeff Bezos and brother to fly to space in Blue Origin flight
The colorized footage stuff has been made in France for about a decade, the last one I saw covered the 1940 invasion. I knew of the exodus away from the invading armies and towards the south of France of course, but what I didn't know, not taught in school, was that at first there were orders to att...Jump to post

One can't have 4x fuel burn per seat mile, comparable floor space, small fleet operating economics, and charge comparable prices to 787 J today. That just doesn't work. CRJ-200 seating for J prices? Not for me. It wouldn't be 4x the fuel burn per seat mile. It would be 4x the fuel burn, but only fo...Jump to post

But the thing is that Boom has a prototype ready to start flying soon, they went ahead of the curve with the prototype with that they will get feedback for the construction of Overture, people said the same thing with the Boeing 747, and look it's flying today. Boom is far, far away from having a &...Jump to post

This is no different than 'on call' employees not being paid for days they are expected to remain near the office or have their phone on. Surely they're compensated for that in some way ? The laws on that are complex and are different in almost every state, which is why on-call schedules are avoide...Jump to post
The first Boeing aircraft was made of wood, linen, cables, and was basically a copy of another plane.
You could say Boom are copying Concorde I guess, but doing so is a bit more challenging than a small seaplane flying at 65kn.
Also the Boeing Model 1 was actually a failure and didn't sell.
I find the highest end devices too expensive for what they do. But I'm not spending hours on my phone every day, so that might play a role. I can't really afford them (I could, but that would mean cutting something else) but even if I could, I would only buy them for the convenience of "I buy t...Jump to post

If Boom were able to build an ER version eventually, UA could fly EWR-HNL-SYD and other eastern Australian routes with HNL being the ideal tech stop or scissors hub location from the east coast of the US to the east coast of Australia plus New Zealand. https://simpleflying.com/united-airlines-boom-...Jump to post
Limit CO2 by mandating grown fuel. Bans are cludgy at best. As an aviation fan and an engineer, I look for solutions, not "just stop" or heavy taxes. e.g., how will electric aircraft be allowed under this ban? When those aircraft are available, why not allow them? Lightsaber "Grown f...Jump to post
I don't think a single one of these will end up in United. If any of them are certified. The contract is full of requirements and loopholes, very easy for United to get out of.

Knowing how many there were at any one time, on average, is interesting, knowing how many there were across millions of years, not so much.
How many humans by that account ? How many apes ?
If we could know the number from fossils and deduct the average population, sure, but doing it the other way ?
That person seems right wing/extreme right.
