Dreamed up by Swiss engineers, the AirYacht is not only similar in name but also in function to the Lazzarini Studio’s Air Yacht – it seems that air transport is capturing the imagination of more and more designers who see it as one of the best forms of environmentally friendly travel.
Not much is known about the concept at the moment, but it is more than likely that the Mach 5+ machine will be used not only for space industry, but also for military purposes. Guy Norris, editor-in-chief of Aviation Week, caught a model of Boeing’s all-new hypersonic aircraft at the AIAA SciTech show in San Diego recently.
Zuri started developing its hybrid aircraft in 2017, and a few months ago it finally took to the skies. A number of companies are working to revolutionise transport. Not just electric cars and flying cars, but also flying vehicles that can get from one point to another in a more efficient and environmentally friendly way than today.
If the special means of transport become safe enough and get the necessary permits, we can get from A to B in a flying saucer-like vehicle in no time, alongside the rocket backpack, flying motorbike and flying car.
According to NASA, the ice crystals in the contrails have the same structure as naturally occurring clouds, so they can remain trapped in the atmosphere for up to several hours, affecting the surface temperature, again in a similar way to classical clouds.
According to many researchers, we are in the midst of a sixth extinction wave, where we are either taking drastic steps to save the planet (or rather ourselves), or we are about to pass the point of no return.
