By NBC NewsPublished Mar 10, 2019 04:23:00The jet engine that powers an airliner and helicopters has made a surprising comeback.
The engine, which was once thought to have been dead, has been revived by scientists and researchers.
The engine was once a rare, rusting object that was melted down by a flame during the engine’s first stage.
Researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have created a new and improved version of the engine that can produce enough power to power a plane’s wings.
The jet engines that power aircraft and helicopters have been an industry fixture for decades, but it took until 2015 for the jet engine to be revived.
The new jet engine is faster, stronger and can operate at much higher temperatures.
“There was no reason to think it wouldn’t be a problem,” said Dr. Matthew A. Cappella, an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at MIT and one of the researchers.
The team is developing a new, much more powerful jet engine called the Phils Propeller Beanie Hat.
“We wanted to develop a jet that could be used for a range of applications,” Capplla said.
The beanie-hat technology could be applied to other applications, such as for use on the surface of asteroids or as a solar-powered hat for astronauts.
“This technology was so hard to develop,” Caffa said.
“We’re hoping to get the technology off the ground as soon as possible.”
In a study published in Science Advances last year, the team showed that the engine can operate in a variety of temperature environments.
The researchers used an electron microscope to look inside the Phils Propellers and then found that it had a new type of electrical charge.
The electric charge created in the engine caused it to generate more heat and produce more thrust.
The team is now testing the new jet in an air-filled, vacuum-cleanroom-style lab environment.
The next step is to make it fly and make it operational in a real flight simulator.
“When we tested it in an empty lab, it flew, it could fly,” Cafa said, “but when we tested in a controlled environment, it couldn’t fly.”
The team has also begun to develop new designs for the beanie that will be easier to make and will work on a wide range of different materials.
“The most important thing to us is making this technology as affordable as possible so that it can be put to commercial use,” Caffe said.
“It’s very important to us to have a jet to fly in space.
There’s a lot of demand for this technology,” he added.NASA’s Jet Power Technologies will use the engine for a number of missions.
Caffaa is working on the Philia Propellor, a rocket that can power satellites and can be used to power electric power plants.
The Jet Propulsers Advanced Research Concepts project is developing the Philes Propellers.
The project is led by MIT Professor of Mechanical Engineering Robert S. Norelli.
The project was funded by the National Science Foundation and NASA.
