More on Space

Fantastic article on the International Space Station over at The Atlantic.

I’m not necessarily on a space-kick lately… but space transportation is fun to watch develop.

Pushing Space Flight Limits

Popular Mechanics has a good summary of SpaceX’s latest efforts to reuse rockets. They’ve been tracking this since originally scheduled in December. This is a big deal for space flight and interplanetary exploration.

Righting the Costa Concordia

Slick video on how they will right (via a process called parbuckling) the Costa Concordia cruise liner that ran aground last year.

FreightOS

Now this is cool! A website in a similar vein as Expedia or Kayak that let’s you find the best rates for freight shipping. It’s called FreightOS. It actually looks very well done. Freight shipping is an awkward and clumsy process for the one-off shipment… for instance when I shipped some of my belongings from the US to the UAE. I had to rely on a shipper who kept a lot of the details and pricing very opaque.

Hopefully a competitive bidding site like this will encourage more transparency and shippers being up front with hidden charges and costs. Perhaps not though… on Kayak and Expedia the prices you find are before taxes and fees.

Still a cool idea.

Scale Models

I’m personally a big fan of fine scale modeling of anything related to transportation… trains, planes, cars, boats, etc. This 18-foot long model of the Titanic will blow your mind. It was actually commissioned by the original ship building company, Harland & Wolff.

Be sure to check out their trains and other models. That might be one of my dream jobs…

Oracle Team USA Sailboat

This is just incredible…

Kai Tak Cruise Ship Terminal?

Hong Kong is turning former Kai Tak International Airport into a cruise ship terminal. Kai Tak is Hong Kong’s old airport and was famously dangerous to land at. Just follow this Youtube link to see how dangerous.

ASCE Infrastructure Report Card

ASCE has just released their every-4-year Infrastructure Report Card.
Bottom line :

  • America’s Infrastructure GPA: D+
  • Estimate for Investment needed by 2020: $3.6 Trillion



The New York Times gives their synopsis.
National Review’s Reihan Salam gives his quick thoughts.

I’m downloading the iPad version now.

Photo – Fishing Dhow

Fishing Dhow

Old school maritime transportation, an Arabian fishing dhow, seen here traveling amongst the fjords of the Musandam Peninsula, Oman. I snagged this shot while taking a tour cruise through the fjords this past weekend.
