Re: Planespotting II

Thanks. Lots of rework needed - I bet we lose 5 knots with the paint job !!
She's a very fast, very frugal plane - 200MPH at 7 GPH is pretty sippy.

Re: Planespotting II

We either short circuited it completely, or reduced our build time and costs, picking up a completed Cozy IV, with a full FAA inspection, airworthiness certificate and engine. For 20K.

Re: Recent UK Graduate - Trying to plan ahead

I'd like to keep this discussion bouncing around.

Re: Recent UK Graduate - Trying to plan ahead

So what then ? Is there a "use" for Phd apart from personal satisfaction and a career path in academia ? Are chemists likely to find more doors open in industry with one ? Our Civil Engineering...

Re: Spaceships and astronomy

The visualisations of a black hole in the movie Interstellar were developed on supercomputers, by people like Kip Thorne. ISTR that there were something like 15 or 16 research papers published as a...

Re: Planespotting II

True, I wouldn't even blame the tubes, it was pilot error. The final accident report was very sobering.

Re: US vs UK for uni. Advice?

The UK would be a costly option, if you have the alternative. IIRC rates are around £40,000/ per year

Re: US vs UK for uni. Advice?

Manchester is a very fine school. There are something like 24 Nobel laureates directly associated with it. It was also the birthplace of the modern computer, so you are going to somewhere with a...

Re: US vs UK for uni. Advice?
