Even if you’re a frequent flyer, we bet this plane will surely catch your attention once you spot it in the airport. Designed and built by Brazil-based aerospace firm Embraer, the aircraft called the ‘Shark Profit Hunter’ is probably the most badass one you’ll ever see.

The new E190-E2 model has just toured the world and has stopped over in the UK, US, Africa, China, and Ireland. Aside from it’s unique design, it’s also got features that make it stand out from the rest.

A plane that looks like a shark – and more!

First and foremost, the aircraft has larger windows compared with others. It also has bigger bins for your personal belongings and bigger space in between seats to allow more leg room. Next, it doesn’t have a middle seat so that’s another major annoyance out of the way.

As if that wasn’t enough, we also learn that the jet burns 17% less fuel than the E190, its predecessor, reported the Daily Mail, which makes it the “most efficient single-aisle aircraft on the market.”

The site further reported that the E190-E2 “has been in commercial operation with Norway’s Widerøe since April of this year” and that “three jets have already accumulated close to 2,000 flight hours achieving schedule reliability of more than 99 per cent.”

With its striking design and great capabilities, the Shark Profit Hunter is definitely set to conquer the skies soon.

So far, the company is predicting that 2,820 commercial aircrafts with 150 seats will be delivered to operators from Europe and Commonwealth of Independent States within the next two decades.

In a research recently published in the Nature journal, we learn that our planet has been swallowing trillions of tons of water into its interior because of tectonic plates collision beneath the ocean. The researchers collected information about the rumblings over a year’s period and they were able to collect 19 passive seismographs across the Mariana Trench.

Additionally, they likewise gathered data “from seven island-based seismographs,” the Daily Mail reported, which allowed them to have “a more detailed picture of how the Pacific plate bends into the trench, revealing new insight on how the rocks hold onto water deep beneath the surface.”

Scientists Want To Dim The Sun To Stop Global Warming

The shocking proposal suggests spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere.

It looks like scientists are willing to try anything to stop climate change. A new idea suggests dimming the sun to deal with global warming. This means spraying chemicals into the Earth's atmosphere to block out UV rays. The process could significantly cut down on global warming. However, it might pose a completely new danger to future generations.

The idea has been proposed by researchers from Harvard and Yale in an effort to combat climate change. The technique known as stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI) requires spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth's lower stratosphere. The chemicals would be injected into altitudes as high as 12 miles.

Scientists believe that the technique can effectively cut the effects of climate change in half.

NASA has successfully landed a probe on the surface of Mars. After a nearly seven-month journey and gripping landing sequence, NASA’s InSight lander has already returned its first image of the Martian surface.
