Airborne 02.14.20: Airbus Blended Wing, GoFly FlyOff, Boeing Woes

Also: Starliner Problems, NATA Update, NBAA v Congress, Iran Fails, Jerks on Planes

Airbus has revealed MAVERIC (Model Aircraft for Validation and Experimentation of Robust Innovative Controls) its “blended wing body” scale model technological demonstrator. At 6.5 feet long and 10.5 feet wide, with a surface area of about 24 square feet, MAVERIC features a disruptive aircraft design that Airbus says has the potential to reduce fuel consumption by up-to 20 percent compared to current single-aisle aircraft. Launched in 2017, MAVERIC first took to the skies in June 2019. Since then the flight-test campaign has been on-going and will continue until the end of Q2 2020. The culmination of the GoFly global competition ... the GoFly Final Fly Off ... is slated for February 27-29, 2020 at Moffett Federal Airfield at NASA's Ames Research Center, Mountain View, California.

NASA's Webb Will Seek Atmospheres Around Potentially Habitable Exoplanets

Larger, Gas Giant Exoplanets Will Also Fall Under Webb's Gaze

This month marks the third anniversary of the discovery of a remarkable system of seven planets known as TRAPPIST-1. These seven rocky, Earth-size worlds orbit an ultra-cool star 39 light-years from Earth. Three of those planets are in the habitable zone, meaning they are at the right orbital distance to be warm enough for liquid water to exist on their surfaces. After its 2021 launch, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope will observe those worlds with the goal of making the first detailed near-infrared study of the atmosphere of a habitable-zone planet.
