The Aerospace technology is advancing day by day as only a few countries have control over the aerospace industry. The US is the big manufacturer in the aerospace industry and the advancement will bring revolution in the industry and reduce the time and limit of the travel.

Has China beaten NASA to ‘Warp Drive’ technology which will get humans to Mars in weeks?


Rob WaughYahoo News UK12 September 2017

https://uk.news.yahoo.com/china-beat...142000979.html

NASA’s much-hyped EM Drive – often described as a ‘Warp Drive’ – made shockwaves around the world, with a propulsion system which seems to defy the laws of physics.

But now China has claimed that it has its own version – and it’s already working.

A video put out by a Chinese propaganda channel claims that Chinese scientists have a working prototype – something NASA has failed to achieve.

Chinese Media Appear To Show Their "Impossible" EmDrive Thruster

In other aerospace news... Finally make this shit happen!

Uber to work with Nasa on flying cars

Uber has struck a deal with the US National Aeronautical and Space Administration (Nasa) as part of its plans to roll out flying cars in cities around the world.

It would work with the space agency to develop software for managing flying taxi routes, Uber's chief product officer Jeff Holden announced at the Web Summit in Lisbon.

Uber wants to see widespread use of electric, on-demand air taxis - part-drone, part fixed-wing aircraft - which could be ordered via a smartphone app in the same way as its road-based taxis.
It is hoping to get its airborne ride-sharing service off the ground by 2020, when it plans tests in Dallas, Los Angeles (with developers Sandstone Properties) and Dubai.

Uber does not plan to build aircraft, but rather the software that would manage the network. It said it would work with Pipistrel Aircraft and a variety of other companies who would build vertical take-off and landing aircraft.

Previously, Nasa has said that it was working with a variety of companies to develop urban air mobility.
The biggest issue is how potentially hundreds of thousands of aircraft could operate alongside existing air traffic control systems.

in other "aero" news... not much space about this.

and furthermore, don´t be so excited about flying cars. I doubt they will be allowed to "drive" without first getting a pilot's license. And at that point, what will be the difference to an helicopter?

I very much doubt we'll get to pilot them ourselves. Self driving software and tech are advancing fast, and the sheer difficulty in implementing them makes me think that our flying cars will have to be fully autonomous to be viable.

I still think I'll see them in my lifetime, but I also hope to live another 60 years.

Yeah, autopiloting progress goes hand in hand with this. The idea of flying cars has always been inspiring, but without advanced sensors that allow everyone to be carried by these, it just couldn't lift off. When we have mature soft- and hardware some time in the 2020s or latest 2030s, this tech will really get it going. Probably coming along with perfected drone tech, better fuels/batteries, lightweight tech (carbon nanotubes?) and new propulsion/rotors etc.
