Air engine

The air engine is an emission-free piston engine using compressed air.

The engines are similar to steam engines as they use the expansion of externally supplied pressurised gas to perform work against a piston.

Small single cylinder engines are incorporated into small toy flying airplane models.

New Fusion Engine Could Mean Mars Trip in 30 Days

Buzz60 (Apr. 15, 2013) A new fusion engine being developed by scientists at the University of Washington with funding from NASA could make all other forms of space travel obsolete. The new engine would allow space travel at unprecedented speeds while being cheaper and it would require less raw material. The quicker travel time means astronauts would spend less nights sleeping in a zero-gravity environment, like Chris Hadfield recently showed in a video from the International Space Station.

2014 Tesla Model S P85+ Takes on the Ike Gauntlet Review (Part 3)

TFL Car (Nov. 14, 2013) ( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Tesla Model S P85 is a revolutionary car that says goodbye to the internal combustion engine and hello to the electric motor. But how will this all electric car do when the road gets steep and the altitude gets to two miles above sea level. From Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel US I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade to test a small economy car like the 2014 Ford Fiesta and the Chevy Sonic Turbo, but how will the 2014 Tesla Model S P85+ perform on the same stretch of American Highway? In Part 3 of another accurate, informative and fun TFLcar mashup review Nathan, Emme, Andre and Roman take on the Ike Gauntlet in the new 2014 Ford Fiesta and Chevy Sonic Turbo and the most powerful electric production car...the 2014 Tesla Model S P85+ to see how these small cars handle the steep grade and lack of air density in the Mountains of Colorado.
