What is your point? I know the pros and cons of LFRs, as do the engineers who design and seek to build them. The sole point of bringing up the Russian example (which is relatively primitive 60s tech and would be far inferior to a 2010s Western design) was that they can work, and that the Gen4 propos...

Wow. Where do I begin? 1. Engineering wise, there is this: a. corrosion b. toxicity c. terrorism And where will you recruit a ship's crew to operate a piece of untested highly experimental machinery, that from the descriptions I read, makes a Fukushima reactor (GE light water reactors that some eng...

could you provide some source material for said reactor and possibly the article you cut the quote from? I thought the citation links from the Wikipedia article were both dead, but apparently one of them is still working: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0029801813003843?via%3Dihub...

When I have a bit more time, I'm looking to start working on a design for a modern, practical nuclear-powered merchant vessel that can be produced in numbers. I'm starting with a general vision rooted in real-life proposals in the hopes of getting some feedback from the community before I start the ...

While I'm saving most of my Wikipedian jets for an upcoming thread, I thought I'd share this example done for an old friend's AU. This Airbus A340-600 serves with Virgin Angolic, the second-largest airline in the Judaic Kingdom and a member of the sprawling Virgin airline empire. https://s26.postimg...

Koko Southern might be my favorite.

I love the stealth F-16 idea. One could even upgrade a Block 60 F-16F to an "F-16SF Silent Falcon," analogous to the "F-15SE Silent Eagle." Maybe even with a V-tail, if that would work. Anyway, onto something completely different, namely an AU version of the Twin Otter drawing I recently updated. Th...

One thing I'd like to point out about the 320s is that it seems the 320B and C (and probably the 320 and 320Badv as well) lacked a "hump" on the outboard engine pylons, as shown by these photos: 320B: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/06/Boeing_707-321B_Pan_Am_Freer.jpg/640px-B...
