Today, July 11, 2014, you can enter to win one at artsandaircraft.com. The fine print says that you must be 18 or over and a resident of the U.S. for us to send you one. Additionally, Tumblr didn’t endorse, administer, sponsor or additively manufacture these engines, and only the GE social media team will receive participant information.
Scientists are using one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers to help build a better jet engine. This animation shows a numerical simulation of a jet fuel spray performed on the supercomputer Sierra in collaboration with Cornell.
