Hypergravity helping aircraft fly further
Paris (ESA) Nov 06, 2012
ESA research has helped to develop an aircraft-grade alloy that is twice as light as conventional nickel superalloys while offering equally good properties. The path to creating this alloy required research under all types of gravity. Airlines are always looking for ways to save fuel by cutting down on weight without sacrificing safety. Generally, cutting weight by 1% will save up to 1.5% in fuel. For commercial airlines, this saving quickly adds up, offering cheaper flights and fewer stopovers wh ... read more
