Balance & Control: Brembo Gets Set For 2019 Formula 1 Championship

Brakes are a funny thing. If you think about it, cars, especially performance cars, are about going, not stopping. But brakes actually help you go faster, not just slow you down.

Old Gold: A classic Triumph Trident T150V restomod

The torque of a twin, the top end power of an inline four, and the sound of angry bees. What’s not to like? Rob Glenton of Fremantle, Western Australia has a penchant for old British bikes. So when a solid condition 1973 T150V Trident presented itself, he jumped at the chance to relive his younger years on a classic Triumph triple restomod. “I’ve always liked the triple: they are so different to the twins, and custom examples are very rare. The sound of a bike is as important to me as the...

This Week: Acting Defense Sec — A Former Boeing Exec — Trashed Lockheed In Meetings

President Donald Trump has repeatedly invoked the “crisis” on the southern border as justification for his desired border wall, and has even threatened to declare an emergency — which he says he has an “absolute right” to do — in order to circumvent Congress and build a wall. But that doesn’t mean he can’t fundraise off of it, right? That’s just what Trump’s reelection campaign did ahead of his primetime Oval Office speech to the American people Tuesday night, emailing supporters: “We need to...

This two-wheeler literally has helicopter-engines because why not…

“Over the top” is a phrase that comes to mind when one looks at the TMC Dumont for the very first time. There’s nothing conventional about the bike. It features two massive 36-inch wide hubless wheels on either end of its edgy, characteristic body that features… wait for it… a helicopter engine. Sitting rather visible on the Dumont’s body is a 300-horsepower Rolls-Royce helicopter engine that literally puts the ‘chopper’ in this chopper!With looks that could proverbially kill, and an engine th...

Introducing the SR-71 Blackbird: Still the Fastest Plane on Earth (Even in Retirement)

Capable of cruising at speeds in excess of Mach 3.2, the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird was the fastest air-breathing manned aircraft to ever to see operational service. But even though its performance has never been matched, the SR-71 was retired as the Cold War drew to a close.

SpaceX to retry launch in first U.S. national security space mission

Billionaire Elon Musk's SpaceX is scheduled on Saturday to launch a long-delayed U.S. military navigation satellite, which if successful would mark the rocket company's first national security space mission for the United States. A Falcon 9 rocket carrying a roughly $500 million GPS satellite built by Lockheed Martin Corp was due to blast off from Florida's Cape Canaveral around 9 a.m. (1400 GMT), privately held SpaceX said. A successful launch - SpaceX's fourth attempt in a week after technic...

10 flying objects people have mistaken for alien spaceships

Many things that are reported as UFOs turn out not to be extraterrestrial at all.  The Lockheed F-117 and the SR-71 Blackbird jets both had designs that looked otherworldly.  A natural phenomenon called ball lightning has also led witnesses to think they'd seen something alien. Mundane objects such as paper lanterns and party balloons have been reported as UFOs. It's a familiar and intriguing story: A strange craft appears in the sky, performs seemingly otherworldly aerobatics, baffles onl...

George H.W. Bush and the Quest for a Realistic Foreign Policy

George H.W. Bush’s death, like that of John McCain, has brought forth glowing tributes that are veiled critiques of our current president.  In response, some commentators on the left have pointed to Bush’s flaws and failures – from his rejection of the 1964 Civil Rights Act to the Willie Horton ad in the 1988 campaign and from the Iran-Contra scandal (of which he was an unnamed conspirator) to his tacit acceptance of the Tiananmen Square massacre.  I want to sidestep this debate to say something...

Lockheed Martin's X-59 Quiet Supersonic Technology aircraft is officially in "the manufacturing phase," bringing the company "one step closer to enabling supersonic travel for passengers around the world." The experimental jet was awarded a contract from NASA earlier this year as it is capable of flying at supersonic speeds without creating loud supersonic booms. Currently, commercial supersonic aircraft are banned from flying over land because of the noise and potential damage the booms may cau...

The Valley Relics Museum is ready to re-open in its new spot. The past? It’s history

The Valley Relics Museum, a collection of pop culture and movie-making artifacts culled from the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles, is reopening Saturday with a bigger collection, expanded open hours and a new home, at the Van Nuys Airport in Lake Balboa.

The F-35's Greatest Vulnerability Isn't Enemy Weapons. It's Being Hacked.

schwit1 shares a report: Every F-35 squadron, no matter the country, has a 13-server ALIS package that is connected to the worldwide ALIS network. Individual jets send logistical data back to their nation's Central Point of Entry, which then passes it on to Lockheed's central server hub in Fort Worth, Texas. In fact, ALIS sends back so much data that some countries are worried it could give away too much information about their F-35 operations. Another networking system is the Joint Reprogrammin...
