The spacecraft is because of its similar shape hard disk got its name "flying saucer".
Russian specialists of the Institute of Physics, “Lebedev, ” in Samarra reported the sensational news that made the so-called plasma sheath for supersonic aircraft, which allows them to multiply increase the speed of flight. In addition, they were able to clarify the way of acting “shock waves in the middle of the unbalanced, ” which is formed around the aircraft wing.
Rinat Galimov, scientist, states that “managing these waves with the magnetic field will be possible to control the plane, but it is necessary to form a plasma stream to the required site characteristics is necessary. “
Russian scientists this is not the first development aircraft, like “flying saucers”. A year and a half in Ulyanovsk adopted a five-year program to build aero static aircraft in which there is a space that is, except helium, full of warm and cold air (ATLA).
Such a scheme allows to efficiently control the buoyancy force that acts on the spacecraft, allowing its vertical takeoff and landing. The spacecraft is due to their similar shape of a disc was named “flying saucer”.
Diameter of the spacecraft will reach 250 meters, height about 100 meters and will cost about 2.7 billion rubles (96.9 million dollars).
