NASA awarding $6 million to 3-year ULI project to develop approach to electric aircraft fueled by liquid hydrogen

NASA ARMD will soon open ULI – Round 3.
Key challenges faced are to come up with a sound basis for demonstrating that centers for the efficient large-scale production of these parts can be designed and used, in addition to qualifying the 3D printed components.


It’s very similar to MRIs work resonance imaging. These electrical drivetrain systems that are necessary do not exist, along with for integrating propulsion technologies into a aircraft platform also the methods still haven’t been effectively recognized. This program seeks to address this gap and create gifts in technologies which can enable completely aircraft later on. –Phillip Ansell, assistant professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Urbana-Champaign and principal investigator

The co-principal investigator on the project is Professor Kiruba Haran at U of I’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

NASA will provide $6 million on the duration of three years to encourage an University Leadership Initiative (ULI) project centered on the evolution of a totally electric aircraft system which uses cryogenic liquid hydrogen as a power storage method.

Hemmings Find of the Day – 1991 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

Stainless steel system is in good condition and there are no check engine lights or functionality issues. Power windows, seats, door locks, mirrors, automatic and automated climate control all operate as they should although the A/C may require additional refrigerant. Equipped with trailering alternative and Positraction, however, there so no indication that a trailer allocation has ever been installed. The mill level controller is on-board but not functioning. My plan was to use this car for retro type road trips, however, events have pushed on the table and off that apart and it is time for this Custom Cruiser to have a house that is new.

Before committing the field to Chevrolet and Buick oldsmobile produced these and for a short period in 1992. Oddly enough it has been noticed the Oldsmobile variant was the best. This one has lots of miles to what is essentially exactly the bullet-proof GM 305 CID throttle body injection motor of that era (great parts availability) and that miles, I had been told, were mostly as a result of highway trips back and forth from Washington to Arizona/Texas (typical is between 8/ 9,000 each ye… Read More

2019 Hemmings Motor News Concours d’Elegance Sneak Peek: 1935 Chrysler Airstream Convertible

Diehard Mopar enthusiasts will tell you 1935 has been a year for the Chrysler division. Acceptance of the Airflow versions that are designed was still far below expectations, even prompting engineers and designers to restyle the front end — especially the hood — to a more contemporary appearance. The bulk of Chrysler ’ s generation happened within their line with Airflow earnings aggressively. Of those two, the Airstream Six (or Series C-6) accounted for 50 percent of Chrysler’s total model-year production. The Series C-6 was to be offered in seven body styles (and a chassis/cowl unit), such as the pictured and infrequent two-door convertible.
Together with their collective assistance, the 13th-annual party of vintage vehicles will occur on September 13-15 in The Festival Commons in Charles R. Wood Park, at Lake George, New York. As announced earlier, this year we will honor seven attribute marques: Prewar Rolls-Royce, Class of 1949, Datsun Z and ZX cars (240, 260, 280 versions ), Early SUVs thru 1978, Chevy W-Engine passenger cars, Vintage Race Cars, along with Fresh Restorations (automobiles which have a recently finished restoration).
