IT'LL NEVER FLY, ORVILLE:

Clean skies ahead? NASA unveils electric plane. (Nicole Orttung, JUNE 19, 2016, CS Monitor)

NASA just released designs for a plane that will test cutting-edge, zero-emission airplane propulsion technology. Scientists with the space agency say they hope their designs will accelerate innovation of more efficient and environmentally friendly aircrafts amid market pressures and government regulators that all point in the same direction: Airlines cannot continue to grow and pollute at current levels.

"The general aviation-sized X-57 will take the first step in opening a new era of aviation," NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said when NASA unveiled plans for the zero-emission experimental plane on Friday.
