Terrafugia TF-X: The Real Flying Car

You may want to know more about an earlier Terrafugia model via this link:

The proposed Terrafugia TF-X would be a tilt-rotor flying machine that would take off and land like a helicopter. Instead of a runway, the TF-X could use a helipad or parking lot. That’s important because Terrafugia’s devices aren’t so much flying cars as roadable aircraft that take you from the airport to your destination a few miles away. The closer you land to your destination, the better. Don’t sell your Cessna 400 just yet. The flying car is a decade away and will likely cost on the high side of a half-million dollars.

Top 10 Biggest Meteor Strikes In History

By Jeff Danelek

Our beloved blue planet gets pelted with debris from space all the time but, since most of it burns up or break apart in the atmosphere, it’s usually not a problem. Even when one does make it to the ground, they are rarely much larger than a small rock, minimizing the damage they’re capable of inflicting. Then, of course, there is that once-in-an-eon occasion where something very very large makes it through intact, and this can really do some damage. Fortunately, such hits are extremely rare, but they are worth noting, if only to serve as reminders of the power of the stars to undo the normal routine here on Earth, with little more than a few minutes’ warning. So where - and when - did these monsters hit? Let’s take a look at the geological records...
