Diabolical ironclad beetles can get squished under 39,000 times their weight and survive. Scientists figured out how.

A diabolical ironclad beetle, or Phloeodes diabolicus. David Kisailus/University of California, Irvine The diabolical ironclad beetle can withstand forces up to 39,000 times its body weight. They can do that, researchers discovered, thanks to hardened casings on each wing that interlock and support the beetle's exoskeleton. By mimicking the interlocking nature of these protective layers, scientists could build better planes and armored vehicles.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more ...

Reaction Engines’ Mach 5 engine is just the tip of the new aerospace boom

Imagine a hypersonic passenger aircraft that would cut the journey time between London and New York to around two hours. At Mach 5, or five times the speed of sound, the aircraft would complete a trip across the Atlantic in around 120 minutes. Mach 5 is more than twice as fast as the cruising speed of Concorde and over 50% faster than the SR-71 Blackbird – the world’s fastest jet-engine powered aircraft. A flight across the Pacific would take roughly three hours. Flight times from London to Sydn...
