Found this in my G+ photos laying around. This is an A380 takeoff at KSFO. Note how the wing flexes as it starts developing lift.

This has to be the coolest STOL drone I've seen to date.
Imagine a battery-powered plane that has 10 engines and can take off like a helicopter and fly efficiently like an aircraft; NASA's developing it.

+Gregory P. Smith Why would they care? At worst a little compressor oil gets on the plate. The dishes still need to be washed and run through the steam sanitizer.

This is a question to folks who are more musically educated than me:

I first heard Ma mère l'Oye in its orchestrated form, many years ago. Now, just a few days ago, I listened to the solo piano version. But of course I can "hear" the orchestral parts as I hear the solo piano.

To my ears, it seems like the individual voices of the orchestral parts are essential. So I'm hearing the piano, but thinking of the voices made distinct by their representation in the bassoons and piccolos and what not.

If I had heard the piano version first, I may not have heard these individual voices, and instead just heard it as a single melody.

Was this piece clearly written with orchestration in mind? On the other hand, what other solo pieces are there that I can listen to which have separate "voices" I can listen for that I am not paying attention to?

As a dead-simple example: The horn calls in the very first section. There is no way I would have heard their significance as horn calls heralding the arrival of a prince just by hearing the piano alone.

Bingo!  Thank you.  That's not the exact post I saw, but it's the same image, which is what I was really after.

The Snowgoose is basically a small box with a propeller on the back; it can be carried around on the back of a Humvee, fly using either a parafoil or a top autogyro rotor, fly along a route entered using GPS or controlled by satellite, and drop off cargo either by landing or by pushing it out on small parachutes. Basically, it's a cheap, simple, deliver-stuff-to-tricky-areas machine.

This article talks mostly about how the military is using it, but its potential applications are much wider: think of its ability to deliver supplies in disaster relief situations (medical equipment to rural Nepal right now, for example!), or make ordinary deliveries to remote areas like the Alaskan bush.

Good engineering is simple, stupid, and effective -- not necessarily a recipe for making a "sexy" project that the Air Force senior command will love, but an excellent recipe for something actually useful.

In a scene right out of Call of Duty, your special forces unit is surrounded on a plateau deep in enemy territory and your ammo is running low. The area is hot with small arms fire, and even if a helicopter crew were to risk it, there are none available. Not to worry, a CQ-10 Snowgoose stuffed full of supplies is on the way.
