This lies in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean. Scientists believe that this happens due to very strong electromagnetic waves that forces ships and aircraft beneath the sea and pulls it down very deep onto the surface of the ocean. Even signals are lost in this process and hence no strong evidence has come till now even though scientists across…

VTOL-Future planes

VTOL-Future planes

Have you heard Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) technology? This is the future of planes, helicopters and fighter jets that can land and take off vertically. This is just like standing and sitting on a fixed place. This is especially useful where runways are not very long or where airports and helipads are built in hilly areas like Hong Kong, Bhutan and few other countries. There is very little space in these areas and planes have to hover in the sky for a long time before final take off….

Now Planes can Land on Circular Runways

Now Planes can Land on Circular Runways

Planes have to wait for long time before landing at airports in case the runway is not free or another flight has to land. The flight is in queue wasting lot of energy, fuel and time and making noise pollution. Now the concept of circular runways is underway where planes can land at any point reducing wastage of time, efforts and fuel and will also reduce noise pollution and frustration. This will be done keeping in mind the wind direction. This concept will become reality only Dutch scientist Henk Hesselink…
