Beijing, Crazy, and Future: Hypersonic Jet Could Take You From Beijing to NYC in Just Two Hours @balleralert Hypersonic Jet Could Take You From Beijing to NYC in Just Two Hours-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ A group of scientists in China are now looking to build a hypersonic plane that would reportedly make trips from Beijing to New York City, only two hours long instead of the normal almost 14-hour flight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ To shorten the length of the trip, the plane would have to travel at more than 5 times the speed of sound. According to Newsweek, scientists at the Chinese Academy of Sciences are the ones responsible for the new aircraft design, which has been dubbed ‘I-plane’. They revealed details about the hypersonic jet in a paper published in the journal Physics, Mechanics, & Astronomy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While the project is only in the beginning stages, the authors have already begun testing a smaller version of the jet in a wind tunnel. Through testing, they found that the jet was able to hit high speeds without experiencing any oppositional force. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “It’s a crazy design, but somehow they’ve managed to make it work,” said one Chinese aircraft designer, who currently works on military research projects, to the South China Morning Post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ He also mentioned that the new design is connected to the country’s hope to develop new strategic weapons before the United States. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “This will require original rather than knock-off designs,” he told the publication. “It could lead to a huge step forward in hypersonic technology.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In the United States, similar aircrafts have also been in the works. In January, Boeing showcased their hypersonic vehicle design that could “pave the way for a future high-speed strike,” according to Aviation Week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What do you think about this new creation?

Africa, Community, and Empire: Ryan Coogler and Michael B Jordan Looking to Bring The Story of Mansa Musa to Life @balleralert Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan Looking to Bring The Story of Mansa Musa to Life-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ With the success of their first three projects: “Fruitvale Station,” “Creed” and “Black Panther”, super Director Ryan Coogler and Hollywood Star Michael B. Jordan are already teaming up for more projects. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to multiple reports, the duo is now looking to start a project centered around the life of Mansa Musa. Both Coogler and Jordan feel it is important to create influential films that reflect the Black community and the contributions that have been made throughout history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “You got to tell stories in today, or in the future,” says Jordan. “Or can we go back even further? There’s always one period that people want to go back to, but can we go back to Hannibal? Or Mansa Musa, destroying economies as he traveled? Can we go back to the Egyptians?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Mansa Musa was an influential African ruler in the fourteenth century. He was emperor of the Mali Empire, a land filled with gold, which he casually handed out during his religious expedition to Mecca, ultimately causing economic crises to cities that were unfamiliar with such wealth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In 1324, Musa became the first Muslim ruler to trek almost four-thousand-miles. During his travels, he encountered rulers of the Middle East and Europe, which helped to put Mali on European maps. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ He helped improve Islamic education and he also brought back government bureaucrats and architects. With the development of mosques and a major university, the city of Timbuktu became more urbanized. Musa ruled for 25 years and during that time, Western Africa was said to be at peace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While there is no word on when this project will take off, the duo is already in pre-production for another film titled “Wrong Answer,” about a 2006 standardized testing scandal in Atlanta. The sequel to “Creed” is also on the way.
