No, this isn't a photoshop. This is actually a plane created by NASA, the AD-1, and it has oblique wings that are turned 60-degrees across its fuselage. Craziness!
NASA recently called on Lockheed Martin, Northrop Gurmman and Boeing to design the planes of the future, and the designs are in.
If you're a space geek, and as a DVICE reader that's not exactly a stretch, an upcoming auction provides a rare opportunity to get some truly incredible stuff from NASA's moon missions that should turn your space geek buddies green with envy.
Does more engines equal more awesome? You bet it does. NASA's latest concept for their satellite launching system is getting fleshed out with some extra sources of thrust.
Angsty NASA scientists have developed a new type of paint from carbon nanotubes that's an order of magnitude blacker than the blackest black you can possibly imagine. My mood in the mornings has nothing on this.
