Researchers modeling the effects of a nuclear missile explosion have found the safest type of building, as well as the safest place within that building, to survive the concussive effects of a nuclear blast wave.
Ultra-efficient plasma thrusters, sometimes called ion thrusters or Hall thrusters, that are used almost exclusively in orbit could soon become much more powerful by using krypton gas instead of xenon.
A new advanced seeker designed for maritime strike missions is currently in development, according to the United States Air Force and its division responsible for development of aerospace warfighting technologies.
A team of physicists says they have observed the most significant isospin mixing recorded to date during beta-decay experiments, a finding that could upset our current accepted understanding of the nuclear force.
A new transonic truss-braced wing (TTBW) aircraft design is in development, following an announcement from NASA that it has chosen Boeing to lead the design and production of a new full-scale demonstrator aircraft.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has chosen to remove areas outside the United States on all its visual flight rules (VFR) aeronautical charts, according to a notice the agency issued late last year.
A new discovery that could potentially hasten our knowledge about physics in some of the universe’s most extreme areas has been revealed from data collected by astronomers over the last several decades.
Researchers behind a prototype semi-sub autonomous craft say their approach could offer commercial clients a more efficient way of transporting cargo and provide the military with a whole new type of nearly invisible autonomous spycraft.
A pair of puzzles that planetary scientists have observed amidst 3,800 different planetary systems may have been solved, with the aid of a new model that considers the influence of various forces on young planet formation.
The Air Force Research Laboratory is partnering with Fortune 500 defense contractor Leidos to design and develop the hypersonic Mayhem surveillance drone, the first drone designed to travel over five times faster than the speed of sound.
