OK... we really can’t wait to see this... The Yak-110, an innovative aerobatic airplane created by attaching two Yak-55s together and adding a jet engine in addition to the two radial engines, is slated to appear and perform at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 for the first time ever. The primary builder of the Yak-110, Dell Coller, EAA 683852, said he believes Oshkosh is the perfect place to bring his new experimental airplane. “I can’t think of a better place to bring this airplane in its first year,” Dell said. “I think everybody who attends the show is really into experimental airplanes, obviously with it being the Experimental Aircraft Association.

Now, the carrier has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to acquire up to 36 additional A380 aircraft. The agreement was signed Thursday morning at the airline’s headquarters. The commitment is for 20 A380s and an option for 16 more with deliveries to start in 2020, valued at $16 billion at latest list prices. The FAA has been hit with another l

Odd Behavior Of Star Reveals Lonely Black Hole Hiding In Giant Star Cluster

Discovery Made Using ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile

Astronomers using ESO’s MUSE instrument on the Very Large Telescope in Chile have discovered a star in the cluster NGC 3201 that is behaving very strangely. It appears to be orbiting an invisible black hole with about four times the mass of the Sun — the first such inactive stellar-mass black hole found in a globular cluster and the first found by directly detecting its gravitational pull. This important discovery impacts on our understanding of the formation of these star clusters, black holes, and the origins of gravitational wave events.
