Why flying cars are a bad idea.


Flying cars, a concept dating back to the year 1917. Flying cars were often thought to be a great idea, dividing the traffic between the on ground roads and "skyways" aka roads in the sky. And yes, this indeed would seem like an amazing idea. There are a lot of risks involved with flying cars and problems.

Starting with risk of failure. Mid-flight, what if a turbine fails? What turbine? Yes, in order to stay hovering you need to react against air, whether that is a turbine, multiple turbines, air blowers, and more. What if just ONE of those (lets say 4) turbines fail? You are likely dead, as the thrust will not be balanced, and due to lack of control authority, your hovering car would flip out. If all turbines fail, you drop to the ground and slam into it, causing either an explosion or death. 

Another issue is, power. It takes a lot of electricity to stay hovering in the air for a while and keep moving for hours without needing to recharge/refuel, like a conventional car. You can't use solar panels/solar cells due to lack of surface area; and you barely get any electricity. You can't use nuclear energy, for an obvious reason (you don't want a radioscopic thermoelectric generator aka RTG or something similar literally in your car, especially with humans).

Another issue, what if there is an accident mid air? Then there could be an massive fire from all those batteries holding the energy necessary to keep those turbines spinning fast. This also creates VERY loud noise. You will hear these huge loud turbines from these hundreds of cars mid air from a mile away, probably even more. 

Why turbines though? It is probably the most efficient way of making cars fly, other than magnets which are not electric, but those get weaker over time and you don't really want a gigantic magnet in the ground. Your phone and/or other devices would fly right out of your pocket and smash into the ground where the giant magnet is.

The conclusion is; flying cars are not good ideas, and better + faster ways of transportation are coming soon & fast, like supersonic pods moving through tunnels, rockets that can get you anywhere on earth in under an hour, usually under 30 minutes, and more.

Starship SN10 Aborts at T - 0 Seconds for its 10km test flight.

  Moments ago, Starship SN10 attempted a flight to 10km, to then orient itself into a unique horizontal bellyflop position, flip itself upright after it has descended to about 1km, deploy the landing legs, and touch down on the landing pad softly. This vehicle, Starship Number 10, uses Liquid CH4 (methane) and Liquid Oxygen aka LOX/LO2, used by its 3 powerful Raptor engines.  Today, SpaceX started their official stream for the Starship SN10 Flight. SpaceX have privated the stream replay, so we cannot replay it. In case you want the link: The vehicle began fueling up with Methane and LOX, and then shortly after, it started the engine chill process, which is the process of chilling the engines down in preparation for engine ignition, so the engine material does not crack or get damaged from sudden shock. The vehicle attempted to start up its 3 Raptor engines, by opening the fuel & oxidizer valves, starting up the turbopumps, sho

What is “the best” programming language?

Programming languages, there are so many of them. Some programming languages are way easier to learn than other ones. But which programming language, is “the best” programming language? This question, it is not really answerable. There is no “best programming languages”, they are all meant for different things, well, MOST of them. If I were to compare 2 different programming languages, meant for very similar things, like Batch and Bash, I would say Batch is easier, as its Syntax is not as confusing as Bash’s to the average person. Here is another example, C# is primarily used for computer applications, mostly on Windows, and HTML is a markup language, being used to make websites. I cannot compare C# (it is pronounced “See Sharp” if you didn’t know) because they are used for completely different things. It wouldn’t make sense to say, “C# is way better”, because what is it better at? Developing desktop applications? Sure! Then I can say HTML is better at making websites, it is not a logi

How do you know the universe was not created a few minutes ago?

       The universe is the giant area of space that we live in, which is observable. Anything past our universal border is not in our universe. People do say the universe is constantly expanding, but there is no proof of that, as the "imaginary" or, maybe not imaginary border at the "end" of our universe. But, how do you know that the universe even exists? Were you even in it last week? Did last week even exist? Last week, the universe could have been created, and you do not have proof against it. All of your knowledge and memory could have easily popped into existence a few seconds ago, tricking you into thinking you have existed for longer than you think. This is likely, but also unlikely, it is a 50/50 chance. A reason that this is unlikely is, there are a lot of things that do not make sense in our universe. Like, why does matter attract matter, resulting in gravity? This exists in our universe, but can it exist in a different universe? Not really, or most likel
