Brahmos supersonic cruise missile .. world's fastest..

World's fastest cruise missile, India's Brahmos, can carry a 300 kg payload at app Mach 3 (3700 kmph) and limited range of 290kms is unmatched. US' fastest missile  Tomahawk travels at just 890 kmph but carries a 450 kg kg payload over a range of 1500 km.... 

Is China a serious threat for India at all ?

There could be intentional screening of defence capability by US on whether it has SCRAMJET technology for its Tomahawk missiles, as it would keep the enemy on their toes.

India's successful SCRAMJET technology.

ISRO successfully tests Scramjet engine: Why it's a big breakthrough for India ?

Why is US getting nervous with Indian grand developments in space ?

Offering leadership to the world in space technology is a great responsibility thrust on it. Indian ability at cost optimization in high tech is a real blessing to planet earth.

What is air-breathing propulsion?

Explains ISRO, air-breathing rocket systems use atmospheric oxygen from their surroundings, burn it with the stored onboard fuel to produce a forward thrust. This is in contrast to the conventional chemical rocket systems which carry both the oxygen and the fuel onboard.
What this effectively helps in achieving is a lighter system. Says ISRO, "Air-Breathing systems become much lighter and more efficient leading to reduced overall costs."

Brahmos missile with RAMJET tech already deployed is the fastest missile in the world, making it a matter of great pride for India !

Go India go, the world is at your feet ! Give great responsible leadership to the world.

With China nowhere in sight in this technology which has only been tried by US and Australia, China is already very much behind India in the space race. US and an "incompetent" Europe keenly watching all developments and with India's remarkable superlative achievements, the future belongs to India !

When US spent $195 billion on its failed space shuttle mission, at an effective cost of $1.35 billion for each of the 135 space shuttle flights, India is going to surprise the world with a scramjet powered shuttle in the coming days.

ISRO's mission to the sun is the next biggest thing to happen to humanity ..

With the world's fastest missile being the Brahmos cruising at 3 mach (and able to carry a payload (even nuclear) of about 300 kg, in comparison to Tomahawk from US cruising at max speeds of 550 kmph and a payload of about 1000 kgs, India has definitely taken the lead.

There was an attempt to arm US' Tomahawk with SCRAMJET engines. But we do not know how many Tomahawk missiles are with these scramjet engines, as publicising the existence of SCRAM jet supersonic missiles is a threat to US itself.

A great learning opportunity for Airlander 10 ..

Why it is called the 'flying bum'
Nose crashing
The hybrid air vehicle Airlander 10, called Martha Gwyn, the 92m long and 44m wide, the largest aircraft in the world, nicknamed as  "The Flying Bum" crashlands at the Cardington airfield in UK.

Airlander in flight ..
Capable of rising to 6100m, cruising at 150 kmph and stay in air for up to 5 days, the 20T airship capable of carrying a 10T payload crashlands in its second experimental flight in Cardington, Bedfordshire, England...

"Failures are the stepping stones to success.." The developers of the Airlander have found one more way in which the blimp can fail. 

I am sure in the next 5 years, Airlander will rise in all majesty and conquer ther airspace of the world.

This technology is here to stay and air travel is going to be made cheap, safe and affordable with the successful effort of solar planes and air balloons (blimps) like Airlander 10.

Good wishes HAV ..

377 years of Chennai .. Happy Birthday Chennai ..

Madras Day is a festival organized to commemorate the founding of the city of Madras (now Chennai) in Tamil Nadu, India.

Why are US, Europe and China lagging in critical solar apps?

Why are US, Europe and China not been able to catch up with India in solar projects, particularly insolation of any of their airports ? Kochi International airport  in Kochi, the world's first and ONLY solar powered international airport in India has already completed one year of incident free and accident free service for the country.

46,000 solar panels at Kochi international airport
US has even gone to the limits of the solar system and visted more inter stellar space than any other country, but they have not been able to catch up with India in insolation efforts.

India has surprised the world with the world's first and only solar energy powered international airport and filed the patents, this time by being the first country to insolate its fourth largest international airport with 7 million annual passenger traffic. By patenting it right on time, India has been able to ward off potential competitors who would otherwise have robbed our methodology of insolation and the technology.

Earlier under the garb of patents, they have been dominating the world. This time by insolating the kochi international airport, India has given back to them in same terms as how they have been giving to the world.

India has shown the world that India is here to stay in the solar energy field and would give top notch leadership to the world. Intense efforts are under way in india to insolate the Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Delhi airports based on our indigenously developed design and patents. This will prevent other other advanced countries from misusing our IPR, technology.

No country is as much developed, confident and strong enough to challenge India in this field. India is getting ready to give leadership to the world in the very critical area of solar energy applications and give a helping hand to other countries.
