Because Bugs are a real DRAAAGGG …

NASA is looking everywhere for ways to improve aviation fuel efficiency. Two of its most promising projects β€” a bug-repellant coating and a new technology for smaller vertical tails β€” are now ready to be tested.

When it comes to commercial aviation, even the smallest improvements in fuel efficiency mean millions of dollars saved and fewer harmful emissions in our atmosphere.

That’s how we reduce the …. DRAAAGGG…

Scientists estimate that using bug-repellant coating on aircrafts can help increase fuel efficiency by upto 6%Β (on every single trip).

Now that’s something BIG, isn’t it? Let’s hope that the test results come out to be positive (for the sake of humankind and our sustainability).

Best hot air balloon rides

Want to see how beautiful our world looks from above?

Since childhood,Β  I always had the above mentioned desire. More so, that was the only reason why I wished to become a pilot (at one point of time πŸ˜› ).

Well, for those (like me) who don’t have a flying license just yet, but would simply cherish a bird’s eye view, hot air balloons provide one of the best ways to accomplish this.

Plus, at times, they’re allowed at places, where jet planes or helicopters are often not allowed to fly.

Here’s a list of the best hot air balloon rides which one can experience –
