Video: The Incredible New Supersonic Affinity Jet Engine from GE

In this video, GE showcases its initial design of the first-ever supersonic engine purpose-built for business jets. The “Affinity” engine is optimized with proven GE technology for supersonic flight and timed to meet the Aerion AS2 launch. “GE Aviation has more than 60 years of experience in designing and building engines adapted for supersonic aircraft. Its first engine to push us into the supersonic era was the J79, which was introduced with Lockheed on their F-104 Starfighter in the mid-1950s.”

Podcast: Quantum Network to Test Unhackable Communications

In this Big Brains podcast, David Awschalom describes how he’s helping to train a new generation of quantum engineers. “The behavior of these tiny pieces is unlike anything we see in our world,” Awschalom said. “If I pull a wagon, you know how it’s going to move. But at the atomic world, things don’t work that way. Wagons can go through walls; wagons can be entangled and share information that is hard to separate.”
