To Save Lives, Engineer Designs Plane With Detachable Cabin For Emergencies

This could either be a massive breakthrough or an epic failure.

A A A

Plane crashes can be really scary. In fact, so very few survive these accidents. Well, things may soon potentially change if Vladimir Tatarenko’s invention proves to be a success.

This aviation engineer from Ukraine has been working hard for 3 years to find a solution for the much-dreaded plane problem. What he eventually came up with is a unique plane design with a detachable cabin.

“Surviving in a plane crash is possible,” said Ukrainian inventor Vladimir Tatarenko.

Tatarenko shared:

“Surviving in a plane crash is possible. While aircraft engineers all over the world are trying to make planes safer, they can do nothing about the human factor.”

So he arrived at a conclusion. He needs to design a plane that will possibly save many, if not all, passengers.

The detachable cabin will utilize parachutes to help it land safely on ground or water.

The inflatable rubber tubes will keep the capsule afloat when needed.

The cabin can easily eject from the plane in a matter of seconds so it can really be useful for emergencies. Moreover, the cabin can land safely on ground or water. Once the cabin detaches, two gunpowder engines will slow down the speed before the parachutes are deployed. As necessary, inflatable rubber tubes can keep the capsule afloat.

Even the passengers’ luggage will be saved from the crash.

As for the passengers’ belongings, Tatarenko has that covered, too.

Of course, the plane will be totally pointless in case of an explosion or if it is under rocket attack. Meanwhile, others who have seen the design fear that a detachable cabin may compromise a plane’s structural integrity.

YouTube user okkcomputer posed two valid questions:

“What if it lands in a populated area? What about the pilots?”

Despite some of the negative feedback to his work, Tatarenko revealed that he conducted a research and found out that 95% of those surveyed are actually “willing to pay more for such a safety system.”

What do you think of this plane design? Do you think it will function as intended or not? Hit us up in the comment section.

Scientists Develop Technique Ensuring 100% Success Rate of Organ Transplants!

Can this organ transplant technique be humanity’s hope to gaining immortality?

Undergoing an organ transplant procedure is a long and harrowing process. First there is the waiting period of finding a suitable donor, undergoing therapies and certain tests to ensure a high percentage of matching between the donor and the recipient. A high matching rate is needed so that the recipient's body will not reject the transplant and attack it.

In some cases that the recipient's immune system attacks the transplanted organ, it can result to even more fatal situations and sometimes even death of the patient. In some cases too, the very long waiting period from obtaining a suitable organ match from organ banks or donors can be the cause of death. The patient's body just can't hold out much longer without a new organ.

But all of that may be a thing of the past, once decellularization becomes more available as an organ preparation method for transplant. We will be able to use the organs of pigs (surprisingly their organs have a high degree of similarity to humans such as their heart, or from deceased human bodies).

How Astronauts Make Their Coffee In Space

Pretty awesome!

If you're like most people who can't start the day without coffee, you have several ways to get your caffeine fix. You can make instant coffee or brew your own using a standard coffeemaker or one of those fancy French presses. Or you can just swing by Starbucks and get your coffee on the go.

But what about astronauts? I'm sure being in space doesn't cure them of their caffeine craving. So how can they create coffee while confined in a zero gravity station where everything just floats around? The answer: vacuum-packed coffee and a straw. Watch and see how they do it.
