The SpaceX Rocket Explodes After Launch

Earlier today, Falcon 9 rocket exploded after the launch at Cape Canaveral space center in Florida.

In other words, it combines the power of an outgoing, Cosworth-developed 6.0-litre V12 engine which now boasts 547 hp connected to an old six-speed, semi-automatic, single-clutch gearbox (also the weakest spot on the car).

Will F-35 Get New AETD Engine?

The much maligned JSF program and its F-35 Lightning II fighter jet may see some bright light being shined upon it soon! According to some rumors, the much famed albeit rather criticized stealth fighter will probably receive the new Adaptive Engine Technology Development (AETD) engine.
