Airplane on a conveyor belt

I end up linking to so much of the stuff this guy posts, I should really replace my blog with his. For whatever it’s worth, I would definitely have you near the top of the list Mr. Kottke.

Check out his new post where he comments on an attempt to take off a plane on a conveyor belt. You might want to check out the background first (don’t bother with the comments, unless you have tons of time!) and then proceed to this post and start reading – from bottom to top like he says.

If you have even a remote bit of interest in science (or planes!) this is a must, and fun, read.

If you prefer to watch it, it’s available as a torrent. You might wanna check the local laws before clicking on that link.
