Firefly backs

I'm working on a couple firefly lamps as set pieces for a play Fej is directing at Theater in the Woods.

BondModel1

From ComicCon. I like how his scuba gear is completely oversized and color-coordinated.

Carnivores Attack!

Winter rips into her burger at lunch yesterday. Winter will be playing a red-headed faerie in an upcoming production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream", enjoys singing, wears a MirrorMask pin, and her favorite con costumes are all dresses.

Foggy_San_Diego

I am completely fogged-in, San Diego! Our short, 1:20 flight from SFO to SAN took about four hours. Because of heavy fog, nobody could land this morning. So we spent some time circling over San Marcos, then landed in Ontario to refuel. Then finally the fog lifted to about 200 ft., and we were able to land in SAN.

First practical hydrogen fuel-cell powered plane completes test flights

Well, it had to happen eventually: AeroEnvironment has flight-tested an unmanned hydrogen fuel-cell-powered spyplane that can stay aloft for one week at 65,000 feet. AV Global Observer 2.jpg
Some of you might recall the earlier NASA Helios program , which strove for similar goals. But Helios used a photoelectric approach that would generate excess hydrogen during the day and use a fuel cell only at night.
The Global Observer ditches the weight of onboard hydrogen generation and solar energy collection equipment and focuses on efficient utilization of hydrogen fuel. Perhaps the next step is unmanned refuelling tankers to automatically deliver hydrogen to the Observers so they can stay aloft indefinitely.
